Chenille

A soft wool, silk, cotton, or rayon yarn with a fluffy protruding pile originally made to resemble caterpillars. Often used for blankets, rugs, and upholstery.

spot treat Spot Treat

You can wash chenille, but to clean chenille fabric on your unlaunderable items such as upholstery, sofas, and rugs, spot treat only.

Cleaning chenille fabric with spot treatment is simple, wet the Wash & Stain Bar and gently work into the stained area(s).

Remove soap and dirt with a wet Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth—be sure to remove all soap. Dampen the cloth as needed, and repeat the process until satisfied.

CMSPage_Chenille_Pretreat Pretreat

When washing, always pretreat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and cuffs.

Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, urine, blood, and old, set-in stains such as pit stains.

The Wash & Stain Bar works the material to remove dirt, grease, oil, and makeup.

To remove odor, presoak the item for 30 minutes in cool water mixed with ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar.

CMSPage_Chenille_Handwash Handwash

Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing delicate fabrics, like chenille items, such as sweaters.

Add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Wash to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water.

Submerge the item and gently agitate the water with your hands to evenly distribute soap. Soak for up to 30 minutes.

Rinse well by running cool water through the item until the water is no longer soapy.

Do not wring freshly hand-washed chenille items. Instead, press the water out of the item.

CMSPage_Chenille_Machine Wash Machine Wash

Turn the item inside out, and place it in a Mesh Washing Bag.

Select the delicate cycle on the washing machine, and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is on low.

Add the appropriate amount of Delicate Wash according to the machine and load size.

For chenille blankets, throws, or bathrobes, machine wash using the normal cycle.

CMSPage_Chenille_Dry & Finish Dry & Finish

Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry. Do not put it in the dryer!

Steam after washing to remove wrinkles and between wears to freshen and remove odor and bacteria. Never iron, as ironing will crush or flatten the natural pile of the yarns.

To freshen items between uses, spritz with Delicate Spray.

Cohabiting with lovable, furry pets? Use the Pet & Lint Brush to eliminate fur and pet hair from upholstery.

CMSPage_Chenille_Store Store

Always store items clean.

We recommend storing in a breathable cotton Storage Bag to protect items from bugs.

Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.

All techniques are based on textile science. Not all garments perform and react as science would predict.
