Maintenance And Washing of Cashmere

We usually recommend ladies to use dry cleaning, or hand wash. Hand wash high-end cashmere products should adopt the following methods:


1. Cashmere products are made of a precious cashmere raw material. Because cashmere is light, soft, warm, and slippery, it is best to wash it by hand separately at home (not mixed with other clothes). Cashmere products of different colors should not be washed together to avoid staining.

2. Measure and record the size of cashmere products before washing. Cashmere products stained with coffee, juice, blood, etc. should be sent to a special washing and dyeing shop for washing.


3. Soak the cashmere in cold water for 5-10 minutes before washing (jacquard or multi-color cashmere products should not be soaked). When soaking, gently squeeze your hands in the water. The purpose of bubble extrusion is to remove the dirt attached to the cashmere fiber from the fiber and into the water. The soil will get wet and loose. After soaking, gently squeeze out the water in your hands, and then put it in a neutral detergent at about 35°C. When soaking in water, gently squeeze and wash with your hands. Do not wash with hot soapy water, scrubbing or alkaline detergents. Otherwise, felting and deformation will occur. When cleaning cashmere products at home, you can wash them with shampoo. Because cashmere fibers are protein fibers, they are particularly afraid of alkaline detergents. Shampoos are mostly "mild" neutral detergents.


4. The washed cashmere products need to be "over-acid" (that is, the washed cashmere products are soaked in a solution containing an appropriate amount of glacial acetic acid) in order to neutralize the soap and lye remaining in the cashmere, improve the luster of the fabric, and affect the wool fiber Play a protective role. In the "overacid" procedure, if glacial acetic acid is not available, edible white vinegar can be used instead. But after the acid is over, clean water is needed.

5. After rinsing with clean water at about 30℃, you can put the supporting softener in the amount according to the instructions, and the hand feel will be better.

6. Squeeze out the water in the cashmere product after washing, put i into the net bag and dehydrate it in the dehydration drum of the washing machine.


7. Spread the dehydrated cashmere sweater on a table covered with towels. Then use a ruler to measure to the original size. Organize it into a prototype by hand and dry it in the shade, avoid hanging and exposing it to the sun.
8. After drying in the shade, it can be ironed by steam ironing at medium temperature (about 140℃). The distance between the iron and the cashmere products is 0.5~1 cm. Do not press on it. If you use other irons, you must put a wet towel on it.
