Excited, you pull it out from a suitcase, but your Kanjeevaram has turned into a lifeless piece of clothing. However, this tragic outcome can be avoided if you follow some simple tricks.
1) Tip 1
If you are washing it by hand, then do not twist it, rather wrap it in a towel, gently roll it, and press the towel to remove excess water. Put it on a hanger and let it dry in direct sunlight.
2) Tip 2
Make a dilute solution of distilled white vinegar and lukewarm water. Soak the saree in the solution and wait for 3-5 minutes. Remove the saree and run it under cold water till the smell of vinegar is completely out.
3) Tip 3
Change the folds every 3 months to avoid permanent creasing and air them in shade every 2-3 months to increase their lifespan.
Follow these steps and we promise your Kanjeevaram will remain gorgeous forever!!
