Tips To Take Care Of Your Vintage Banarasi Sarees
These tips will help you in taking the right care of your sarees
1. Store The Sarees Separately
We are cautious when it comes to our precious banarasi sarees, but here extra vigilance is required. It is also important to keep in mind that we store them separately and not with a stack of other sarees of different materials. Storing them with sarees of different materials can damage the silk material.
2. Dry Clean The Sarees
Hand washing is no option when it comes to banarasi sarees. Dry cleaning is the best way to ensure that your saree is clean and maintained at the same time. Detergents can ruin the material.
3. Avoid Direct Sunlight
Absolutely avoid drying the saree in direct sunlight as direct heat can fade the saree and also can damage the cloth, making it weak wherein the design could also break apart. It is better to avoid drying it in direct sunlight. Its best to either do spot treatment to tackle the stains.
4.Wrap Them In Cotton Cloth
Banarasi sarees are extremely delicate and hence need proper care and attention. One single mistake and it can damage our entire saree. It's best to wrap each saree in cotton or muslin cloth as it will help in keeping it protected.
5.Avoid Metal Hangers
Do not use metal hangers to store the saree, as they are prone to corrosion and can damage banarasi sarees. Their corrosion can leave permanent stains on the saree and hence damage it. Instead look out for plastic options to hang the saree, which are easily available as well.
