4 Tips for Caring for Scarves

Scarves make really cute accessories during winter. However, it is only going to be cute if you take good care of it and wear it appropriately. Whether you are a fan of cotton, wool or cashmere scarves, there are certain things you can do to extend their longevity.

Store ProperlyFlower Scarf Hanger

Part of good scarf maintenance involves taking care of them when they are not draped around your neck. For the most part, you can hang most scarves on a standard hanger. However, if you have a scarf made out of a delicate material such as satin, then you will want to roll it up and keep it in a cool area. You want to avoid keeping any type of scarf away from sunlight. Do not hang your scarves close to the window because the UV rays can lead to premature discoloration.

As much as you try to take care of your scarves, a day may come when something accidentally gets spilled on one. When this happens, you need to act fast. You should have a stain remover readily available in your household that does not contain bleach. Apply a small amount onto a cotton swab, and gently dab it onto the stained area. Finally, delicately rinse with water. Lay out the scarf afterward to allow it to dry. In the event you own a silk scarf that has been stained, you can use a general hair shampoo in lieu of a standard fabric cleaner.

Washing MachineClean Appropriately

The material a scarf is made out of will determine how it should be cleaned. Your scarf should have a tag that specifies how it needs to be cleaned. For some scarves, you should be able to just toss it in the washer and dryer. Other scarves will say that they should be dry cleaned only. You do not have to wash your scarf every week. In fact, you can often get away with only washing it a couple times a season.

Remove Wrinkles

There might be a scarf you want to wear, but when you pull it out of the closet, it is covered with wrinkles. Fortunately, there is a simple trick for removing those. Run a hot shower, so the bathroom fills up with steam. Hang the scarf somewhere in the vicinity of the steam. This should remove any creases and also give it a fresher scent.

With some basic maintenance, you can be confident you will always be able to wear your scarves. Visit Tidy Living to find some great hangers to use for your scarves.
