Which is the most expensive piece of cloth you have ever bought? The majority of you will say 'my wedding dress'. You may have spend hours in a boutique or at a fashion line to get that perfect fabric in perfect colour. And no doubt it must have cost you a fortune to get that perfect look.
But after your big day, the wedding dress would hardly be used. Yes we know it is a wedding attire and it is supposed to stay hidden in your cupboard for eternity until you decide to pass it to your children, well that hardly happens because the next generation may not be interested in an outdated outfit.
Even if you are planning to give it to your children or not you need to maintain it in the perfect form, after all, you have spent a lot on it.
Don't wrap your wedding dress/saree/lehenga in a plastic bag. They emit fumes that will react with the fabric and will create a yellow fume on it. Don't hang it in the cupboard with your every day dresses. Don't try to remove stains from your dress by yourself. It may result in the fabric getting damaged.
Keep it wrapped in a dry but soft cloth like cotton or muslin after that keep it in a cool and dry environment with not much humidity. Don't wrap it in coloured paper or clothing. Make sure that the cloth you are using to cover is always dry if not it may stain your wedding dress.
If you spill any drinks on your dress it is better to get expert advice as the sugar content in these drinks will not be visible soon after but would later create brown stains on your clothes. Don't rub the area soon after you spilled the drink it may further damage your clothes.
Preservation and cleaning of the clothes should be based on the fabric of your attire. It is better to give your wedding for dry cleaning after your wedding day thus you could remove any stains that may damage your clothes in the long run.
