It’s easy to own one than to preserve many. That’s the truth about Sarees. They are unique and need special care. Being made of different fabrics and embroideries, each of them calls for a different way of caring. Understanding this fact, we would like to share few tips on taking care of your Sarees. Here’s how.

Cotton Sarees:

Cotton fabric is one of the most suited fabric for the Indian climate.

Its light weight and smooth feel makes it very comfortable to wear it throughout the year.

Wash cotton sarees in cold water. For the first wash soak them in rock salt (khada namak) for 10-15 minutes, this helps in locking the colour and prevents colour fading.

Cotton sarees should be dried in shade.

Do not expose to direct sunlight.

They can be starched at home with liquid starch available in the market.

When ironing a cotton saree, sprinkle little water, as cotton sarees get creases very easily.

Chiffon Sarees:

Chiffon sarees should be dry cleaned first.

Wash them in cold water.

Chiffon being a very light fabric should be taken care of.

Chiffon sarees with heavy work, or borders shouldn’t be hung in the wardrobe, instead they should be stacked and kept in cloth bags.

Dry them in shade.

Avoid using to many pins to your chiffon saree, as it might snag the fabric.

Chanderi silk Sarees:

First wash dry clean.

Dry them in shade.

Chanderi sarees are prone to tearing when kept stacked for a long time. Hence, fold them with a synthetic cloth inside, this helps in preventing them from tearing.

Tissue & Organza Sarees

First wash dry clean.

Dry in shade.

Being delicate in nature they should be stacked and wrapped in mul mul cloth bag.

Also try and refold them regularly to avoid tearing of the fabric.


Silk Sarees:

First wash dry clean.

Don’t expose to direct sunlight.

Silk being one of the most expensive fabrics should be taken care of properly.

Watch the temperature while ironing it. As a little increase in the temperature of the iron can burn the fabric.

Silk sarees can get damaged because of moisture. So wrap them in muslin cloth to preserve them from moisture.

Silk sarees with heavy work need special care. It is suggested to wash and iron these sarees from a laundry.
