Care Instructions

First-Time Care:

Before wearing the saree, it is advisable to wash it gently in cold water with a mild detergent to remove any sizing or residual dyes.

Storage:

Store your sarees in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight, to prevent colors from fading.

Washing:

  • Hand wash your sarees separately in cold water with a mild detergent.

  • Avoid using harsh detergents, bleach, or strong chemicals that can damage the fabric.

  • Do not wring or twist the saree; instead, gently squeeze excess water.

  • Do not use a washing machine or dry cleaning for traditional sarees unless otherwise specified.

Drying:

  • Dry your sarees in the shade to avoid direct sunlight, which can lead to color fading.

  • Hang them on a broad hanger to maintain their shape.

Ironing:

  • Use a low to medium heat setting on your iron when ironing the saree.

  • Place a cotton cloth or a handkerchief between the saree and the iron to prevent direct contact.

Stains:

Address stains promptly. Gently blot the stain with a clean cloth or sponge, but do not rub it, as it may set the stain.

Pleating and Folding:

When storing the saree, ensure that it is properly pleated and neatly folded to maintain its shape.

Maintenance:

Periodically, unfold and refold the saree to prevent permanent creases.

Protection:

Be cautious when wearing jewelry, belts, or accessories that may snag the delicate fabric of the saree.

Silk Sarees:

Silk sarees may require special care and occasional dry cleaning, depending on the type of silk and embellishments.

Embellished Sarees:

Sarees with heavy embroidery, sequins, or other embellishments should be stored carefully to avoid damage to these delicate elements.

Woven Sarees:

Handwoven sarees may have slight irregularities that are part of their charm. Handle with care to avoid snagging or damaging the fabric.
