My personal Experience

  • All fabrics including pashminas can be gently hand washed with a good liquid soap or “Reetha”
  • Never wring the fabric
  • Always dry it wrong side-up in the shade.
  • DO NOT hang woollens on a clothes line. Spread them out on a chataai.
  • Starch I find eats into the fabric especially if left unworn over long periods of time.
  • I personally prefer my silks and even cottons unstarched. They remain soft.
  • For crisp cottons one can use some strained diluted rice starch (when worn the starch kind of disintegrates). Many freshly starched saris put away tend to develop a moth-eaten appearance L
  • Gently steam iron. For delicate silks and tissues put a soft mul on top and iron. Direct ironing can be disastrous. I remember a brand new tissue was in rags by the time I reached the wedding, cos of direct ironing.
  • Change folds of saris regularly - Air them regularly
  • Never wash unless absolutely necessary
  • After an occasion I wipe my saris / shawls  with a damp handkerchief, especially the border. Concentrate on stains. Rub talcum powder for grease, it is pretty effective. Food undetected eats into the fabric leaves gaping holes. Especially shawls!
  • Only if absolutely necessary give your heirlooms to a good reputed dry cleaner. Ones who use white petrol NOT chemicals
  • Voila! I hope you can hand these down for generations!
