Vacuuming is a safe, affordable way to clean most textiles, costumes and accessories providing you can control the level of suction. This 12" square nylon screen is trimmed with bias tape and, when placed over the textle, prevents loose threads or embellishments from being sucked into the vacuum. The screen can also be placed over the nozzle and secured with a rubber band. Vacuum on low suction several inches above the texile. The screen can be cleaned in warm soapy water.
