Taking Care of Your Garments

by Margot Laussucq on July 12, 2021

♡ Our top tips for keeping your garments as good as new forever! 


1. Cold Hand Washing

At Lilac and Mila we always recommend cold hand washing your items. All of our garments are made from 100% naturally dyed Rayon which is why we always recommend this to keep your items in the best condition possible.


2. Using Organic and Natural Fabric Wash

We recommend using Organic and All Natural products as they are softer and more gentle on the fabric as well as the environment! You can get these from your local organic stores, markets, or even some local supermarkets may stock them.


3. Air Drying your Garments

We recommend air drying your clothing pieces on either a coat hanger or soft pegs avoiding dryers as this can sometimes make the fabric shrink and damage the fabric.


4. Using a Steamer

We absolutely love our steamer and couldn't recommend it more! Easier and more efficient than the classic iron, the steamer will smooth out the fabric as well as releasing the fabric.

Starting at around $30, you can pick one up online or at your local Kmart!


5. Shake it out and hit it like a Rug

Last but not least, we recommend shaking and hitting the wrinkles out of your items, particularly dresses. This may seem like an odd tip but trust us, it works!
