Everyday care tips for your Denver fur coat

February 12, 2020

Did you get a new Denver fur coat for the holidays? First, congratulations! A Denver fur coat is the perfect addition to any wardrobe. With different colors, styles, and even fur types, a fur coat is truly one of the most versatile things you can own. However, while you are brimming with excitement you could even be a little overwhelmed about how to best take care of you Denver fur coat. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled our three favorite tips!

When you aren’t wearing your fur coat, it’s important to take proper care of it and that is important when it comes to hanging in your closet. Make sure you purchase a sturdy hanger, one with pads, to help keep the shoulders of your jacket in tip-top shape! Make sure that your fur coat hangs alone. While it doesn’t need it’s own closet, it’s best to keep it from getting stuck in the mass of other clothes you might have in your closet. If you don’t tend to wear your fur coat every day, be sure to keep a cotton bag over your coat. This will keep the dust off and help to keep it cleaner.

A common fashion statement is to pin things to fur coats - such as buttons, jewelry, or festive pins that help give you some additional style. While it’s alright to do so, we recommend that you remove the accessories as soon as you are done wearing them for the day. Leaving accessories attached to your jacket can cause matting and ultimately damage your fur coat. 

Did you wear your fur coat out in the rain? Or snow? Moisture can cause major damage to your Denver fur coat, but there is no need to fear. When you remove the coat, shake off all the moisture you can, and hang your coat on its normal hanger in a well-ventilated room. It’s important to never use direct heat on your jacket, as it can cause further damage to the fur coat. Never place the fur coat in the dryer, and when it’s completely dry shake it out to help re-fluff your coat. If you have stepped out in your fur coat in the middle of a downpour or blizzard, it’s best to seek a professional’s assistance.
