The right things to do to keep and clean your best dresses
At some point, the most beautiful dress you cherish so much needs to be washed and the dilemma arises as to how to do it. To preserve the quality of the clothes, the way of washing them varies according to the material, the color and the cut. It is therefore preferable to use the service of a qualified dry cleaner who will guarantee a job well done and who will ensure that the quality of the clothes is maintained.
Opt for a good wedding dress laundry
The wedding dress is characterized by its special design, and above all for the delicacy of its color. It's crucial not to just machine wash it. In order to avoid damaging, tarnishing or poorly cleaning it, you should entrust its washing to a real wedding dress cleaner who is already specialized in this kind of work. You should know that the various stains (from cake, oil, lipstick, etc.) and poorly cleaned perspiration will forever alter this dress. Experts in the field, such as wedding dress dryers, have the technical know-how to make it happen easily. In addition, they have the appropriate equipment and efficient products to guarantee a good result.
What about evening and luxury dresses? Is the dyeing still compulsory?
A dress that has cost the eyes of the head deserves special treatment. The ideal would always be to use the services of a professional, such as a dry cleaner in Paris for those in the capital. There is no need to take unnecessary risks. However, it is good to know that a dress is machine washable when it does not contain any of the following materials: chiffon, silk, satin, tulle and lace. These are hand washed in a mixture of cold water and liquid laundry soap (for wool). In any case, they can not be rubbed or kneaded. Just press gently on the fabric to remove the dirt. The tulle and the lace are rinsed with vinegar water (1 liter of water + 1 glass of white vinegar). Drying is done in the open air. The silk and satin are ironed upside down, passing a sponge soaked in white vinegar over them.
What to do after going to the dry cleaners?
Professionals, such as dry cleaning in Paris, deliver the cleaned dress in a specialized bag for this purpose, but it is strongly advised not to store it inside. To give it better protection, it needs to be put in a stronger and thicker protective cover. A hanger equipped with a cover could be an excellent alternative. It should be stored away from light, in a dry place and at a stable temperature of around 19 ° C. The installation of an antimit in the storage area promotes its conservation. Folds are strongly to be avoided when the dress is to be kept for a long time. Wrapping it in tissue paper prevents the formation of these folds.
Reducing and immortalizing her most beautiful dress, it's not rocket science
The best way to clean your most beautiful dress (wedding, evening, or other) is to use the service of a professional specializing in the matter, such as a dry cleaner in Paris for example. With some care, it is possible to keep it for a long time.
