Hi I'm Erica and we are in Salt Lake City Utah and I am going to talk to you today about how to wash a cotton sweater. The first thing you are going to do is you are going to spray your sweater if you have any stains with a spray stain removal. You can spray, just spray it on wherever there is a stain. After you spray it make sure that you turn it inside out. If you don't, if you don't turn the sweater inside out it can wear the sweater more unless you have a heavily soiled or a heavy stain that you want to get out then leave it right side out and after that you will put it inside out and this will save the life of you sweater and make it so that it does not fade or get any fuzzies or stuff like that on it and then after you do that you will turn on the washer to a warm water with the delicate cycle and just throw it in there, let it wash. After you are done washing it you can put it in the dryer and then you can use a dryer sheet to make it soft and smell fresh.
