How Do You Clean Crepe?

Ken Sarni - Wednesday, April 24, 2013
  • Due to its fiber composition, most crepe garments are “Dryclean Only.”
  • Crepe is extremely susceptible to shrinkage when exposed to moisture. This is especially true for crepes that contain wool, silk, or rayon. Home stain removal on crepe garments may also result in localized shrinkage.
  • If the care label says it is safe to wash the garment, use cool water, rinse thoroughly, and extract lightly. Air dry. Do not tumble dry.
  • Finishing usually requires blocking the fabric to get it back to its original shape.

How Do You Clean Linen?

Ken Sarni - Tuesday, April 16, 2013
  • Linen is washable, but it can shrink if it has not been pre-shrunk by the manufacturer. Check the label before laundering.
  • If machine washing linens, use warm water and a short, gentle cycle.
  • Separate colors before washing. Many linens may bleed.
  • Dry linen garments on a clothing rack or hanger.
  • Have all pieces of your linen outfits drycleaned at the same time to avoid color discrepancies.
  • When pressing, use a high temperature with a spray mist or damp cloth.
  • If your linens have been treated with a wrinkle-resistant finish, use a lower setting on your iron.
