With jacquard, it’s best to treat in small parts with a mild solvent instead of dumping the entire garment into the wash.
Occasionally, brush the fabric to remove any dirt that could cause a long term stain.
Perhaps one of the toughest fabrics to clean, velvet can be made either with silk, cotton or mohair.
More often than not, sending it to the laundry to dry clean is the best way to treat any stains or dirt but, there are some home solutions you can try. Mix some baking soda and lemon and dilute them with water before using it to spot treat your velvet apparel or item.
Avoid using direct heat when attempting to dry the fabric and opt to let it air dry so it doesn’t shrink.
Silk might be considered tricky but it’s actually pretty easy to clean! Simply hand wash it in cold water and gently use detergent on any affected areas.
Let it hang dry and you’re set! If you want to iron out any creases, go with a steamer instead. It’s less harsh and won’t cause a burn as badly as an iron would.
Above anything else, remember to moisturise your leather to keep it supple and buttery soft so it doesn’t start to peel or crack.
Before cleaning, use a microfibre cloth to dust away any dirt on the surface. Next, use moisturising soup and slowly lather it on the leather fabric. Be sure not to soak your leather in water as it’ll leave water stains that are hard to treat.
Spot clean suede with a small amount of white vinegar and water. Use a damp cloth to gentle rub away any stains.
For prevention, spray stain and water repellents before using your suede items.
