Here's how you should take care of your expensive wedding garments...
Dry cleaning or washing:
Many fabrics needs to be dry cleaned. Seek the help of a professional drycleaner for the best cleaning method.
Buying expensive garments:
While buying expensive garments, make sure there are no fake/glued on/ironed on embellishments.
Before the party:
Make sure your garments are clean before pressing. Heat sources, such as pressing can make the stain permanent.
While giving your stained garment for drycleaning, don’t forget to tell the drycleaner what caused the stain. Repair small tears (if any) beforehand to prevent further damage during drycleaning. In case you have specific instruction, make sure your drycleaner understands your preference.
Ensure your heavily-embellished garments, such as lehengas and saris are delivered on specially-designed hangers. Normal hangers might damage the work on your sari.
: If you plan to wear the garment for more than once in the season, hang it out in the open for 24 hours. If it is smelly, use a good fabric deodoriser and then hang it carefully.
Deal with stained clothes
: Blotting can only make champagne stains on your garment disappear. But if left unattended, over a period of time, a yellow or brown stain will appear, due to the oxidation of the sugar content.
