It's a fact that scarves are precious and delicate and if you want your scarf collection to last longer, you should know how to maintain them carefully.
We want you to enjoy your purchase, and in order to increase the life of your scarves, we have provided some tips on how to take care of it.
Properly storing your scarves is critical to their longevity.
We recommend you keep your scarves gently folded in a box and place them in a cool, dry area without direct sunlight to avoid discoloration of the fabric.
Keeping dried mint or lavender in your drawer/wardrobe will help your scarves smell great. Cloves and cedar balls are superb moth deterrents.
We suggest cleaning your scarves two to three times a season, if you are using them frequently.
Always make sure that you read the label first and if it says "dry clean only" you should strictly follow the instructions. Don't forget to tell your dry cleaner not to use strong solvents on your 100% silk scarves.
Using inappropriate detergent or warm/hot water when cleaning them at home will ruin the fabric and spoil the colors. When needed, use cool water and soap, gently wash your scarves without pressing hard, and let it air dry.
If you have to remove a stain make sure to use bleach-free stain removers.
When ironing your scarves with a traditional iron at home, always make sure to set it up on low heat.
We recommend you iron it on the reverse side and always use a cotton cloth between the iron and the scarf, to prevent burning. You can also use a hand steamer for better results.
If you don't have any of those tools, simply hang your scarf in a closed bathroom while showering and the steam will help reduce any creases/wrinkles.
And remember to let the scarf completely cool before using or folding it.
Perfume: Never spray perfume directly on your scarf.
Sunlight: Always avoid storing your scarves in a place with direct sunlight.
Hot water: It will simply ruin the fabric and the colors of your scarf.
We hope these few tips will help you keep the quality and life of your scarves, for many years ahead.
