Fur

The pelt of an animal with fine, fluffy fibers. Soft and insulating, common furs include mink, sable, fox, beaver, rabbit, raccoon, and marten. Used for coats, hats, gloves, and trimming.

Do you have an iconic fur coat that you love to wear when the temperatures drop low? Are you afraid of damaging it? Have you been wondering how to wash real fur and how to store it when the temperatures start to rise? You’re not alone when it comes to having fears of fur coat cleaning.

Fur cleaning can feel daunting. That’s why we created our simple, how to clean fur guide, featuring everything from how to wash fur, clean rabbit fur, cleaning vintage fur, to keeping it in excellent condition when not being worn with proper fur storage at home..

Not all fur can be washed. When it comes to fur cleaning at home, it’s a good idea to first perform a water test and stop treatment of the item if you notice discoloration from the rest of the fabric. Beyond spot treatment, fur care involves regular brushing with the Cashmere Brush to remove lint and hair, and to rejuvenate the fur’s natural oils.

Keep reading to learn about off-season fur storage and other best practices to keep your pieces looking their best. For more expert laundry and home cleaning tips, check out the Clean Talk Blog.

*Fur with skin and vintage fur cannot be washed; dry clean instead.

Not all surfaces can be spot treated (e.g., skin undersides).

To test, wet a corner of the Wash & Stain Bar and use it to clean a small area of the item. Not all surfaces can be spot treated (e.g., skin undersides).

Do not continue cleaning if:

  • The water or product leaves a mark or creates discoloration.
  • The treated area is cleaner and brighter than the rest of the fabric.

If you see either of the above reactions, stop spot treating. For further cleaning, take it to a professional fur cleaner.

CMSPage_Fur_Spot Treat Spot Treat

To spot treat light spills and stains, lather the Wash & Stain Bar with cool water and gently work into the stained area(s).

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

CMSPage_Fur_Dry & Finish Dry & Finish

Steam to remove wrinkles and to remove odor and bacteria. Never iron, as ironing will burn the fur.

To freshen, spritz Wool & Cashmere Spray between wearings. This nontoxic and allergen-free fabric spray naturally repels bugs and moths.

Brush regularly with the Cashmere Brush to remove lint and hair, and to rejuvenate the fur’s natural oils.

CMSPage_Fur_Store Store

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

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

Long Term Storage: Seasonally store fur pieces in cold temperatures – below 55 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal. Humidity should be controlled between 45% and 55%.

Exposure to light should be minimal.

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