June 5, 2009, Newsletter Issue #294: Faux Fur Cleaning

Tip of the Week

To clean faux fur, first check the label, but you should be able to hand wash and lay flat to dry. Most faux fur is hand washable, but it depends on the lining used, and it might be dry clean only. Follow the manufacturer´s instructions. Your faux fur items can usually be cleaned simply by brushing and shaking to fluff up like new. Drying in the dryer, as the heat would likely alter the fur´s size and shape. Unlike real fur, no special care is needed. Most can be dry-cleaned, but be sure to check the label. If it has particularly long pile, it may need to be cleaned by a furrier.
