Are you vacationing this summer? Watch for fading in your clothing.

The new colorful spring fabrics are beautiful – but susceptible to sun fade. How would this occur? If you should drive to your favorite summer vacation destination and leave garments unprotected – hanging on car hooks exposed to direct sunlight over a period of time –  colors will fade.

Be safe, pack ‘em and iron them.
