In lieu of actually tidying this place (ie. my room, not the internet) up a bit, I thought I'd google for a site which told me how to tidy up. In doing so, I found this wonderful site which tells me "How to tidy, launder and stow your cheongsam." In my ignorance, I know not what a cheongsam is, nor if I possess one, but found the site to be generally applicable in life nevertheless. Unfortunately, none of the links on the site seem to work, so my quest to find out what a cheongsam is was early thwarted.

A. Tidying your cheongsam
Most of the present cheongsams are made of broche material that is not washable. So you'd better take care when you wear your cheongsam, especially, don't besmirch it with oil, cola or lipstick because they are difficult to be cleaned even if the dry cleaner.
Therefore, we suggest:
Don't wear the same cheongsam for long;
Watch out the cuspidate lest it would damage your cheongsam;
You'd better keep the sleeves natural rather than roll up them;

B. Laundering your cheongsam
If you dirty it with incaution, you can cover the blot with a piece of moist rag and then iron. Thus, the rag can absorb some dust so that not only the cheongsam is cleaned but it is ironed as well.

C. Stowing your cheongsam
If you want to stow it for long, make sure that it is hung up by the clothes rack, especially, the shoulder is crutched properly. Remember to moth your cheongsam before you put it into the clothespress.

The first rule of Cheongsam Club is that you do not pronounce Cheongsam Club.

Well, now we know... :D

This reminds me that I do not use the word 'lest' often enough in casual conversation.
