LAMPS and LAMP HOLDERS (GLASS)

For glass mosaic, ideally you should soak a clean cloth in glass cleaning fluid and rub it on the glass surface of the lamp.

Another way to clean the lamps is to mix water with ammonia, rub the desired surface and wipe it with a clean cloth to recover the shine.

You can also clean them with a feather duster.

LAMPS (METAL)

With a simple cloth dipped in pure vinegar.

Cleaning the lamp with warm water and a cloth, you can use a mild soap and rub.

Moisten a sponge to rub with white vinegar or lemon juice. If the metal you want to clean has texture, it is best to use a soft bristle brush instead of the sponge, as this will be much more effective in reaching every nook and cranny.

As you can see, cleaning lamps is a fairly simple process. Do not let the dirt from your lamps turn off the brightness of them.

PASHMINAS

1. Brushing

In our daily life, we cannot avoid coming into contact with dust or dirt. Unfortunately, dust accumulates on the fabrics of our pashmina and can become stains in the long run. Simply brush your pashmina lengthwise to reduce the possibility of staining. Remember that your pashmina is a delicate, luxurious piece, and that brushing must be done gently to prevent the threads from breaking.

2. Aerate

Prolonged exposure to odors such as cigarettes or food can be difficult to remove. Airing your pashmina in time can help you get rid of bad odors. Stretch pashmina out flat on the bed or lay it out in the open for a while.

3. Rest

It seems silly, but fabrics need their rest too. Letting your pashmina rest for at least 24 hours before using it again will give the fiber resilience and elasticity. This helps your pashmina to recover and return to its original shape. You can also hang it in a steam bath, it helps the fabrics to recover.

4. Ironing

Shawls and scarves are always prettier when freshly ironed. Give your pashmina a full steam iron and you’ll see how it looks like new again!

5. Drying out of direct sunlight

If your pashmina accidentally gets wet never put it in the dryer, try to dry it at room temperature and away from sunlight.

6.  Storage

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 for storage. 

Follow these simple steps and make your pashmina softer and more beautiful with each passing day.

TEXTILES

Washing a blanket, quilt, cushion or table runner is not a process we have to do regularly. In general, for their care and cleaning it is enough to air them, avoid dust accumulation and keep them always dry. But there are situations in which, for various reasons, it is necessary to wash the blanket, for which we offer you in this section a series of advice and recommendations.

NORMAL WASHING WITH WATER

Hand wash. If we refer to large textiles, hand washing is the most recommended. The blanket should be placed in a large container (bathtub or laundry room) with warm water and soap or detergent for delicate clothes. Gently stir the garment in the water and let it rest. You can repeat the operation several times and proceed to wash it with abundant clean water. Let it drain inside the laundry room and, in no case, twist the blanket to drain it. Finally, you must proceed with the drying, according to the instructions below.

Washing machine. If the size of the fabric allows it, the washing will be done with cold or warm water, in a program for delicate garments and using a detergent for that type of garments. Special care should be taken in the spin cycle, which should be very gentle, just to slightly wring out the garment. Never dry the fabric in the drying program.

ASPIRATION

If time is short, the fabric can be vacuumed using only the vacuum’s suction head, as combs and brushes could damage the hair.

DRY WASHING

It is a comfortable and perfectly valid option for washing our textiles. Cleaning professionals should use Perchlorethylene and mineral type solvents. They should also maintain the conditions of using a soft program and the prohibition of tumble drying.

DRYING

Once drained, the garment should be spread out on a clean surface.
It can also be stretched on a traditional rope. Avoid direct exposure to the sun during the hours of greatest intensity. Once dry, the fabric should be gently shaken so that the hair loosens and recovers its initial appearance.

SPOTS

If any liquid or product has been spilled on the fabric, you should act immediately to minimize the risk of the damage becoming permanent.

WATER

If the fabric is not excessively wet and the water is clean, quickly apply a tissue that acts as a blotter, and let the fabric dry. In case the textile is impregnated with water, as a consequence of a broken pipe for example, you should proceed with one of the normal types of washing.

COFFEE, TEA, WINE AND OTHER WATER-BASED STAINS

Dry the stain well with a tissue. Then sponge the affected area with a solution of white vinegar and 50% warm water. Do not rub too much. It is advisable to proceed afterwards with a normal wash.

PAINT, WITH OIL BASE

Dry the stain with an absorbent paper handkerchief. Clean the stain superficially with a cloth moistened with turpentine in a very soft way. Once the paint is diluted, touch the affected area with a cloth moistened with liquid soap for delicate clothes. You must make sure that the room is well ventilated. Proceed finally with a normal wash.
