As a welcome to our blog, we are going to teach you how to take care of your Vanguerati scarves, following a few simple steps that you can always consult here.
First of all, you should know that the composition label of each one of them tells us that we cannot wash or iron it at maximum temperature. This just means that we should not abuse it, but we can wash and iron our handkerchief carefully several times a year.
To guarantee a good wash, we have the possibility of washing our scarf both by hand and by machine. In both cases we will use cold and / or warm water.
Hand wash: Cold or warm water should always be used. First of all, if you have a localized stain on your handkerchief, such as a lipstick stain, don't worry. To remove it, just apply a few drops of soap to the area and rub with your fingertips in circles so as not to deform the silk fibers. The rest of the handkerchief, which will be submerged in the bucket with water, you just have to wash it with the rest of the soap to re-appreciate the initial soft touch that the silk handkerchief has. Of course, do not let it soak. This is very important.
Machine wash: If your washing machine has the wool program, we will use this one, since it is undoubtedly the most efficient. It is essential to add a little fabric softener so that the silk scarf is soft and feels the same as it did before washing. Nor can we overuse it as it could damage the silk scarf to the point of breaking it.
After washing it, we will go to drying; It can be done in two ways: either we put it in the dryer or we let it air dry.
Dryer: In case of using this drying method, we recommend the cold air program. Keep in mind that the handkerchief will be dry in about 5-10 minutes.
In the air: To air dry the silk scarf, we recommend hanging it on the bar of the bathtub or shower; half for each side for about 10-15 minutes. To take into account a couple of things, never hang the handkerchief with tweezers, because the fibers would deform irreversibly; Do not hang it outside to dry in the sun, as it can burn its colors.
Finally, we will leave our silk scarf without wrinkles.
Ironing: There is no need to be afraid of ironing your handkerchief. It is important to do it at maximum temperature and with steam. In the event that any wrinkles persist, you will have to moisten the handkerchief with a spray bottle.
We hope these tips help you keep your Vanguerati silk scarf as good as it was on the first day.
