Shoes are one of my favorite ways to incorporate velvet. They instantly warm up an outfit and give the look a season appropriate vibe.
How To Protect Velvet
Velvet clothes are easily damaged and one of the harder types of fabrics to maintain and keep in it’s original form. Through trial and error, I’ve found these 3 tips helpful to protect velvet:
- Place soft tissue between the garment and hanger to avoid permanent dents or marks
- Using a steamer or placing velvet garment in a steamy bathroom is best for removing wrinkles rather than ironing the clothing directly
- Using a fabric protector can help make the item not so vulnerable
How To Clean Velvet
In the case that your velvet does get dirty, these 3 spot cleaning tools might help you.
- Combine two full tablespoons of baking soda and mix it with a bowl full of lemon juice. Once foam forms, dab your spill.
- Mix dishwashing detergent with water, then take a soft cloth and dab the spill – do NOT rub.
- Finally, you want to make sure to dry the velvet. Velvet can take a while to dry once wet but using a hair dryer or fan can help speed up the process.
