Properly washing your acrylic blankets or garments that contain acrylic starts with pre-treatment. Pretreat and spot clean stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar (the best silk stain removers) .

Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing organza.
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.

Most delicate items will be wrinkled after laundering. We recommend steaming for the best and safest finish.
If ironing, use the lowest temperature setting and iron on the wrong side of the fabric (with the garment inside out). A pressing cloth between the iron and item will be safest.
To freshen items between wearings, spritz with Delicate Spray.
