Introduction to Material Care
Different fabrics and materials need different care. I would like to share my knowledge & researches about how to take the best care of your products with you.
Caring for your products can be critical because if you don't give suitable care to your products you may not be able to use your products as long as you wish. Taking the best care of your product is also the most sustainable thing to do.
Please read the care information carefully on this page as I do not attach care labels on my products due to reducing as much waste as possible.
Here are the main materials that I used and caring information about them which you may find very useful for your garments.
Hand washing is always the best & safest method for washing satin. Water temperature cool or cold. Do not wring the satin. Instead, press the water out of the item. Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry. Do not put it in the dryer. If ironing, use the lowest temperature setting and gentle iron.
You can wash your cotton item own machine or give it hand washes. If machine, avoid fabric softener, as this can dull the finish. Always wash in warm or cold water to prevent shrinking and fading. Cotton fabric can be air-dried or machine dried using moderate to low heat. High heats can cause cotton fibers to shrink. Iron on high heat while the fabric is slightly damp. Use steam as needed. Note! Ironing can usually be avoided by air drying or removing immediately from the machine.
Please give your organza garment hand wash with cool water & gentle soap. Spread out a towel on a flat surface. Place your organza garment on the towel, smoothing it on top of the towel. Starting at one of the short ends of the towel, roll the organza garment up in the towel like a burrito and allow the towel to absorb water out on a flat surface. Unroll the first towel and remove the organza item from it. Spread the organza item on top of the dry towel and allow it to air dry. If ironing your organza garment, set the iron low heat setting and move it swiftly across the organza to remove wrinkles.
Though the material is strong, the hand was s best. Please wash a hand in cold water with a small amount of mild detergent. Rinse with clean water. Lay the georgette on a flat surface or a drying rack and allow it to air dry completely. Avoid leaving georgette in the sunlight for extended periods as they may fade. Do not dry georgette fabric in the dryer.
Hand wash is the best way to clean your silk garment in cold water with a mild silk-friendly detergent. Leave to soak for 5 min in cold water. Swish the garment gently. Rinse with fresh water. To keep its hydrated feel, use a fabric conditioner in the final rinse or even a small amount of hair conditioner. Rinse well in cold water. Then lay it flat at roll it in a towel to absorb any lingering moisture. Lay flat to dry. If ironing set the iron to low heat or the silk setting. Iron silk only once it is dry and be sure to put a cloth between the silk and the iron. Do not spray or wet silk while ironing you may get water stains on your silk.
Always store your pearls safely wrapped in a soft cloth or pouch. In terms of cleaning your pearls give them a good soak in lukewarm water with gentle soap, not detergent. Rinse well and allow to dry wrapped in a soft cloth, then wear them to return some oils from your skin to the pearls.
Always remove your pearls if you apply hair spray, put on perfume or creams. All can damage pearls.
Always remove pearls before exercising because sweating also can damage pearls as it is not the water or salt, but the ph of sweat is not good for your pearls.
Never use toothbrushes or scouring pads to clean your pearls and never apply your pearls to anything containing chlorine bleach, vinegar, or ammonia. All will be harm your pearls. Avoid anything other than water and soap, not detergent.
Do not store your pearls in any type of plastic bag as plastic can emit a chemical that will cause damage to your pearls.
Do not leave your pearls around a direct source of heat such as a fireplace area, on top of a television set or stove.
