Here is a quick guide to get you started to cleaning your new scarf. Please note to always read the care tag for specific information, on your particular garment, before attempting to remove a stain or clean an item.
Depending on the delicacy of the acrylic garment, you might want to dry-clean, wash by hand, or wash in the machine, as directed by the care tag instructions. Wash delicate acrylic items by hand in warm water, gently squeezing out the excess. Do not put it into the drier. For sturdier acrylic fabrics, you might be able to wash them in the machine with all-purpose detergent, and tumble-dry at low temperatures. Acrylic is wrinkle resistant so do not concern yourself with ironing your acrylic garment. Please note that acrylic garments do not accept heat well.
Cotton is easy to wash and wear. Machine-wash and tumble dry cotton fabrics, using a water temperature that depends on the individual garment (see care tag for details), and use an all-purpose detergent. Use a hot iron to diminish wrinkles.
Machine-wash and tumble dry linen. Use an all-purpose detergent and if needed, press the garment with a hot iron while still damp, for best results.
A lot of times, the makers of scarves mix fabrics to create a masterpiece. These types of scarves can be tricky to clean, so make sure to look at your individual garment’s care tag instructions before you attempt to wash it.
For best results, dry clean mohair garments.
Machine-wash polyester garments in warm water using an all-purpose detergent. Tumble dry at a low temperature setting. Do not over dry polyester items due to the shrinkage that can occur. Make sure to check the care tags for item specific instructions.
Generally, silk is a dry-clean only fabric.
Woolens should always be dry-cleaned unless the individual garment is marked as “washable“.
