Delicates

Delicates
  • Delicates are made from materials that need a little extra attention, like silk, viscose, linen or cupro, or those that have a special embroidery, embellishment or trim. Some can be machine washed, others need to be washed by hand, and some are dry-clean only. Always follow the instructions on the care label.
  • Don't wash your item after every wear – tip number one from Clevercare – instead freshen them up by airing outside or try wearing a fitted cotton top underneath, so you wash the base layer rather than the delicate item.
  • When it's time to wash – and it is machine-washable – choose the delicate cycle, which is designed to be less abrasive. Check the temperature setting and use a mesh bag to help protect the item during the washing cycle.
  • For hand-wash items, wash in cold water using a special detergent for delicates and avoid stretching the garment when wet. An easy tip to avoid this is to roll the hand-washed garment in a clean towel and press out the excess water, remove from the towel, and dry flat.
  • To ease creasing between wears, hang in a steamy bathroom, and when ironing, follow the temperature instructions.
  • For dry-clean only items, seek specialist advice.
  • Pay attention to storing these items and be careful when wearing with other garments that have a sharp or rough surface, as it can snag or mark the delicate fabric.
