Polyester is a synthetic fabric that generally resists wrinkles, fading and shrinking when taken care of properly. In addition, polyester is also used to create blends that make cotton and other fabrics more durable. But like other fabrics, it also has its weaknesses. It may pill and easily stain with oil-based spills. It is also susceptible to static cling. As a result, polyester garments need proper care to maintain a good appearance and feel.
