CARE: Metallic Polyester Lurex
- Machine Wash with Care: Use a gentle cycle and cold water for washing your rayon/linen blend garment. Avoid using hot water, as it can cause shrinkage and damage to the fibres.
- Mild Detergent: Opt for a mild, gentle detergent to preserve the colours and texture of the fabric. Harsh chemicals can affect the fibres negatively.
- Turn Inside Out: Before putting the garment in the washing machine, turn it inside out. This helps prevent excessive friction and minimizes the chances of fading or pilling on the fabric's outer surface.
- Separate Colors: When washing, especially for the first few times, it's a good idea to wash your rayon/linen blend garment separately from other items to prevent potential color bleeding.
- Avoid Overloading: Don't overcrowd the washing machine to allow enough space for the fabric to move freely. This minimises the risk of wrinkles and damage during washing.
- Skip the Dryer: It's best to air-dry your rayon/linen blend garment. Lay it flat on a clean, dry towel to prevent stretching or misshaping. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent colour fading.
- Avoid Hanging: Hanging a damp rayon/linen blend garment can cause it to stretch. Instead, lay it flat to dry or drape it over a drying rack.
- Minimal Wrinkles: Both rayon and linen have a tendency to wrinkle. If you prefer a smoother look, you can iron the garment on a low to medium setting while it's slightly damp. Alternatively, embrace the natural texture for a more relaxed appearance.
- Storage: When not wearing your garment, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Using padded hangers for hanging and folding neatly are good storage options.
- Handle with Care: Be cautious with accessories like belts and jewellery, as they can snag or damage the delicate fibres.
- Avoid Bleaching: Never use bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can weaken the fibres and cause discolouration.
Following these care instructions will help extend the lifespan of your Metallic Lurex garment and keep it looking great. Always remember to check the care label on the garment too.
