How to Care for Clothing With Pleats or Ruffles
How to Dewrinkle Embellished ClothingBeading, gemstones, rhinestones, sequins, and metal accents: A steamer is safest. “Use a brush attachment so you can go right over embellishments without melting them,” says Barbara Zagnoni of Rowenta. No attachment? Hover the steamer an inch above the garment so the metal plate doesn’t make contact. No steamer? Cup a spoon over an accent to shield it while you iron around it, as shown.
Ribbons: Grosgrain or satin ribbon can be ironed or steamed on a medium setting. Steam velvet ribbons.
How to Store
- Pieces with a few sequins or stones can be hung, but fold heavily embellished items, since the extra weight can cause the fabric to stretch.
- If something is especially delicate, put it in a breathable garment bag or wrap it in acid-free tissue paper to prevent snagging.
