fabric care suggestions are provided as a general guide for
the convenience of our customers and visitors. Because materials
and dyes vary between manufacturers and products, generally,
the best rule is to follow the care instructions on the manufacturer's
label. If there is no label and/or you wish to wash a garment
or fabric at home instead of dry clean, the properties of
each fabric will help you determine the care of the fabric
can be easily laundered. It can withstand high temperatures
(boiling water does not hurt the fibre). Any good detergent
can be used to wash cotton. Cotton will take much longer
to dry than less absorbent fibres. Cotton can be ironed
with a hot iron, and does not scorch easily
linens are washable, while others are 'dry clean only'.
Be sure to check the label
items made from polyester can be machine washed and dried.
If ironing is needed, use a moderately warm iron. Most
items made from polyester can be dry-cleaned
cleaning is recommended. Although hand wash in lukewarm
water is okay. Lay flat on a clean non-coloured towel
pre-washed silk is washable. Read the label! Dry cleaning
is generally recommended. Can be gently hand washed with
mild soap and lukewarm water. Chlorine bleach should never
be used on silk. Lay flat on a clean non-coloured towel
for dry clean only. Can be spot cleaned with a damp sponge.
