However, these “hot clothes”, which can be worn almost every day in winter, after several washings, often make people feel “the more you wear, warmer it gets”?

Excessive rubbing/washing with hot waterThe principle of heating clothing is based on a special fiber structure that captures water vapor emitted by body and converts it into heat to keep warm. . Excessive friction and high water temperature can damage fibers. Although a higher water temperature is better for decontamination and disinfection, many items will warp or even fade, so it is recommended to check temperature setting on laundry label before washing.

Use a special lotionWarm clothes are tight-fitting clothes that will inevitably leave marks due to body sweat and make-up when put on and taken off. Even so, it is recommended to use neutral detergents and not strong specialty detergents such as bleach, which can damage clothing. In addition, some experts have pointed out in past that "softening essence" that some people add to underwear can actually protect warm clothes better. The main reason is that cationic surfactant in it can protect fiber structure, reduce damage, and improve moisture absorption and perspiration effect; same reason can be proved for "cold clothes" by same principle.
Neutral detergent is only suitable for heating clothes, and adding a softening essence can also provide effect of protecting clothes.
