May 29, 2009, Newsletter Issue #293: Feather Trim Cleaning

Tip of the Week

To clean feather trim, you will not be able to get the feathers wet, as this will damage them. First, I would recommend checking the label, and it likely recommends dry clean only. You should be able to spot clean the rest of the shirt by hand being careful not to get the feathers wet. You could also try the at-home dry cleaning products now available, although they are usually best only for freshening rather than actually cleaning. Or, if you are handy with a needle and thread, you could try removing the feathers, washing the shirt and reattaching the feathers, although this would be a lot more work than taking it to the dry cleaners.
