Velour

A soft, velvety, thick pile originally made with wool or cotton yarns, now made of various synthetics. Knitted or woven, it’s often used for warm-up suits, robes, toys, and sometimes towels.

Spot Treat

For unlaunderable items such as upholstery, spot treat only.

To spot treat, 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.

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.

Handwash

Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing delicate velour items.

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

If the item is wool velour, use Wool & Cashmere Shampoo.

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 tepid water through the item until the water is no longer soapy. Do not wring. Instead, press the water out of the item.

Machine Wash

Wash velour tracksuits, robes, towels, and toys with Signature Detergent on the normal cycle using hot water to achieve the deepest clean.

Velour produces lint; wash items inside out and separately from other clothing.

Dry & Finish

Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or tumble dry at a medium temperature.

To freshen items between washings, spritz with Fabric Fresh Classic.

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

Store

A velour item such as a skirt or dress can be hung on a hanger; however, be mindful of clips because they can leave marks on the material.

Always store items clean.

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.
