Knowing how to wash and clean faux fur pillows, blankets, rugs, slippers, and coats starts with pre treatment. Treat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and cuffs.
The Wash & Stain Bar works the material to remove dirt, grease, oil, and makeup.
Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing faux fur.
Add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Wool & Cashmere Shampoo 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. Instead, press the water out of the item.
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!
Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle and brush the faux fur.
To remove wrinkles, we recommend steaming for the best and safest finish. If you don’t have a steamer, you can use the iron by hovering over the item using the steam setting.
Always store items clean. We recommend storing in a breathable cotton Hanging Garment Bag to protect items from bugs.
All techniques are based on textile science. Not all garments perform and react as science would predict.
