House of Salma Care Guide

Maximize the life and look of your modest wear with our simple care tips:

  1. Fabric-Specific Washing Instructions:

    • Cotton/Linen: Machine wash cold, gentle cycle; use mild detergents.
    • Satin and Silk: Hand wash or use a delicate cycle; cold water is recommended to preserve sheen and softness.
    • Chiffon: Hand wash gently in lukewarm water with mild detergent.
    • Printed Fabrics: Wash inside out in cold water to protect prints and colors.
  2. Drying Tips:

    • Avoid using a dryer for materials like silk and chiffon; instead, air-dry these garments to prevent shrinking and fabric damage.
    • For cotton and linen, tumble dry on a low setting or air dry for best results.
  3. Ironing:

    • Iron on low heat settings according to fabric type. Use a pressing cloth over delicate fabrics like satin and silk.
    • Steam chiffon and printed dresses to avoid direct contact with heat.
  4. Storage:

    • Store garments on padded hangers to maintain their shape.
    • Use garment bags for silk and evening dresses to protect them from dust and light.
  5. Special Care for Abayas and Hijabs:

    • Consider professional dry cleaning for embellished or delicate items.
    • Store hijabs by folding them neatly or hanging them to prevent wrinkles.

Remember: Always check the care label on each garment for specific instructions. Following these guidelines will help keep your garments looking their best, ensuring they remain a cherished part of your wardrobe for years to come.
