In our day to day, we can not avoid getting in contact with dust or dirt. Unfortunately, dust accumulates in the tissues of our pashmina and can become long-term stains. Simply gently brush your pashmina longitudinally to reduce the possibility of spotting. Remember that your pashmina is a delicate piece, of luxury, and that brushing has to be done gently to prevent the threads from breaking.
Prolonged exposure to odors such as cigarettes or food can be difficult to remove. Oxygenate your pashmina on time can help you get rid of bad smells. Stretch the pashmina flat on the bed or lay it out in the open air for a while.
It seems silly, but the tissues also need their rest. Let your pashmina rest for at least 24 hours before reusing it, granting resilience and elasticity to the fiber. This helps your pashmina to recover and return to its original form. You can also hang them in a steam bath, help the tissues recover.
The shawls and scarves are always nicer when freshly ironed. Pass a steam iron to your pashmina and you will see how it looks like new!
- Drying out of direct sunlight
If your pashmina gets accidentally wet, never put it in the dryer, try to dry it at room temperature and away from sunlight.
Food stains and body oils attract various insects and animals, so make sure your pashmina is completely clean before storing it. If you can, use airtight bags and containers to store them.
Follow these simple steps and make your pashmina softer and more beautiful with each passing day.
