How to clean, maintain cotton and silk sarees?

Updated: Apr 4, 2019

Cotton Sarees:

- Color and Texture are the two things need to be maintained.

- Before washing a cotton saree for the first time, soak it in lukewarm water mixed with rock salt for some 10-15 minutes. This will prevent saree from color fading in subsequent washes.

- After washing don't wring it vigorously, instead allow it to hang for sometime to get rid of excess water.

- Always use starch to retain the crispness.

- Dry the saree in a shaded area to avoid color fading.

- Store the saree in an airy closet.


Silk Sarees:

- Always dry-clean silk sarees. Hand wash or machine wash will spoil the saree.

- In case of stain, wipe it immediately with cold water.

- Dry the saree in a shaded area to avoid color fading.

- Don't store the saree in a plastic cover,instead use soft muslin cloth. If there is any golden embroidery,plastic cover will turn it black.
