Saree Maintaining Tips & Tricks | Stop doing this to your sarees

Each saree, based on its texture, weave, colour and pattern, needs a special treatment for maintenance. Here are a few tips you must follow to know how to maintain the beauty and elegance of Sarees.

Intricately woven, carefully designed, some heavy, some light; each saree needs to be treated differently depending on its make. Here are some tips on how to take care of a saree.

1) Washing them in the machine can damage them

Avoid machine wash, simply dry clean or hand wash the saree with a mild soap.

2) Do not dry in Sunlight

Do not leave your saree under direct sunlight for too long. The UV rays can cause damage to the fabric and may also cause the colour to fade.

3) Do not use a hot iron

Avoid ironing your sarees directly. More importantly, iron your sarees at a low temperature setting. If your iron doesn’t have those settings, put a dupatta or bed-sheet on the saree and then iron on top of that to prevent any burns.

4) Do not fold too much

Do not make very small folds, as there is always a risk of sarees tearing up at the folds, if kept for too long. Keep newspapers under each fold to avoid creasing. Do not use metal hangers for sarees as the metal can corrode and leave permanent marks on the saree.

Now you can take care of your sarees properly with these simple but useful tips.
