Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Please feel free to contact me about cleaning and storing your new or vintage assuit.

Care instructions

Store in a pillow case after swirling the vintage material or if you are storing and not wearing it, use acid free tissue and wrap.

Care instructions

Most of the vintages have been professionally washed and do not need to be cleaned for a decade. If there are spills or tarnish, you can soak in warm water with an oxy cleaning detergent , then rinse well (careful not to hang while wet), and let most water drain, then roll in a towel. I use white vinegar in my rinse water. Colored vintage assuits can leak some color when washed, because we do not use a stabilizer, it damages the fabric. They've lasted 100 years and should last another century :)
