How to take care of cotton handloom sarees?

Cotton handloom sarees are delicate and require gentle care to maintain their texture, color, and longevity. Here are some tips to take care of cotton handloom sarees:

  1. Hand wash: Always hand wash cotton handloom sarees in cold water with a mild detergent. Do not use hot water or bleach as they can damage the fabric.

  2. Soak: Soak the saree in cold water with salt for 4-5 minutes before washing to remove any dirt or stains.

  3. Gentle scrubbing: Use a soft brush or your hands to gently scrub the fabric. Do not rub too hard, or it may damage the saree.

  4. Rinse: Rinse the saree thoroughly with cold water until all the soap is removed.

  5. Dry: Do not wring the saree. Instead, hang it on a clothesline in a shaded area to air dry. Avoid direct sunlight as it can fade the color of the fabric.

  6. Iron: Iron the saree while it is still damp to avoid damaging the fabric. Use a low heat setting and place a thin cloth over the saree to prevent direct contact with the iron.

  7. Storage: Store the saree in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight, to prevent the fabric from fading or yellowing. Fold it neatly and avoid hanging it for a long time as it can stretch the fabric.

By following these tips, you can take care of your cotton handloom sarees and enjoy wearing them for years to come.
