If you groom pets for a living, you will want to look your best at all times. Nothing looks worse than worn-looking clothes with stains and rips. Care and attention goes a long way in keeping your grooming workwear looking smart and clean. So how do we keep our workwear looking fresh and clean? Here are a few helpful tips to find out more.
Choose your grooming workwear wisely Spend time sourcing the right style and design of workwear that you will feel comfortable in all day. Always consider a style that provides the optimum protection against animal hair. Sometimes it's better to go with a practical garment instead of a fashion statement. Look for a durable style that has strong stitching and is made well. Make sure the material is functional and hair resistant and avoid garments like a spa/hairdressers uniform as they are made from cotton/polyester, and will attract hair. All of our hair resistant garments are made in lightweight, comfortable nylon. Another good strategy is to check out company reviews and what other groomers are saying about a particular brand.
Follow the info and care instructions The best way to wash any grooming workwear is to place it into the washing machine every day after use, with little other maintenance except for drying. However if you are in a rush you could be tempted to dry your garment in a tumble dryer. No mater what, you should always read the care instructions and never place your hair resistant garment into a tumble dryer.
Wash regular and check for stains and rips Grooming and clipping plays a huge part towards your garment deterioration over a period of time. Coarse hair can get ingrained into the zip and seams, stains look unsightly and a torn pocket is not a good look. Choose a grooming garment that is durable and made from high quality material.
Only wear your uniform for grooming Ensure your grooming workwear is only worn at work. Anyone who works with animals will tell you there's nothing worse than the smell of dirty animal hair. Look for grooming workwear that can be easily taken off and stored until you get home for washing. Wearing a non hair resistant uniform outside of work will be itchy and uncomfortable. Animal hair is a hazard and needs to be controlled accordingly.
Have spare workwear (or two) Washing and wearing the same workwear for 5 days will take its toll on the garment. If you can afford it, you should invest in more hair resistant garments to give you a breather when it comes to maintenance and to ensure each tunic is not subjected to the rigours of the washing machine each day. Also having a spare will stop the temptation of you throwing the garment into the tumble dryer.
