How To Care For Your Roksanda Dresses
Roksanda dresses are made from a range of materials. These include silk, satin, cotton, polyester, spandex and elastane. Due to the delicate nature of many of these fabrics, most pieces from the brand are dry clean only. Gowns and long dresses from Roksanda may be especially delicate because of embellishments and should be handled, cleaned and stored with care.
We would always recommend following the care instructions on the dress label and those that do state ‘dry clean only’, should be firmly adhered to. However, if you prefer to clean your silk Roksanda dress at home, hand washing is usually an adequate alternative and we advise following the below tips:
Step 1 – The rich colors of silk are often prone to bleeding, so make sure you test for color fastness prior to hand washing it. Simply dip a cotton swab into a mixture of mild laundry detergent and water, then dab it on a concealed seam. Wait to see if any dye comes off on the swab. Vibrant prints or colors that bleed must be dry-cleaned.
Step 2 – Avoid spot-treating silk, as this can cause lightening in that area. If there are moderate stains, particularly ones in the center of a pattern, wash the whole dress. If unappealing stains appear on the dress, it’s best to take it to a dry cleaner.
Step 3 – To hand wash, fill a clean sink or small container with hand-hot water and a little mild liquid detergent. Gently stir for a few minutes and rinse thoroughly. If the care label recommends machine washing, select a gentle, cold-water cycle.
Step 4 – Following rinsing, carefully squeeze out excess water. Avoid twisting or wringing your silk dress, as doing so can harm the material.
Step 5 – Place the wet silk dress flat on top of a clean, absorbent towel. Next, roll up the dress into the towel to remove excess moisture. Unfold and repeat the process using another dry towel. Leave to dry by lying flat on a dry towel or drying rack.
Step 6 – If the fabric care label states the dress can be ironed, then be sure to select a low setting on your iron. And make sure you iron while the silk dress is still a little damp. Hang to dry on a padded hanger. If the care label doesn’t recommend ironing, avoid completely.
