Golden Threads and Delicate Stitches

Golden Threads and Delicate Stitches

To properly care for your Afghan dress hand-embroidered with golden threads, follow these steps:

1. Handle with Care: Treat your Afghan dress delicately to preserve its intricate embroidery and stitching. Avoid rough handling or pulling on the threads.

2. Spot Cleaning: For minor stains or dirt, gently spot clean the affected area using a mild detergent and cold water. Dab the stain with a clean cloth rather than rubbing, which could damage the embroidery.

3. Avoid Washing Machine: Hand-washing is the best method for cleaning your Afghan dress. Fill a basin or tub with cold water and a small amount of mild detergent. Submerge the dress in the water and gently swish it around. Rinse thoroughly with cold water to remove all soap residue.

4. Drying: After washing, carefully squeeze out excess water without wringing or twisting the fabric. Lay the Afghan dress flat on a clean towel and roll it up to absorb more water. Then, lay it out flat on another dry towel to air dry. Avoid hanging it, as this could cause distortion or stretching of the fabric.

5. Storage: When not in use, store your Afghan dress in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading or damage to the embroidery. Avoid folding it along the embroidered lines to prevent creases or distortions.

6. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Keep your Afghan dress away from harsh chemicals, including bleach, as they can cause discoloration or damage to the fabric and embroidery. By following these care instructions, you can ensure that your Afghan dress remains beautiful and well-preserved for years to come.
