Take a tour around any clothing section— women’s, children’s, or even men’s—and you’ll discover that practically all of the garments are adorned in some fashion. The hardware might be buttons, zippers, or denim studs, all of which are widely available. However, extra caution should be used with garments that have embellishments such as sequins, beading, imitation gemstones, metallic embroidery or studs, and ribbons.

Washable Beaded or Sequined Clothes

The longevity of the accents on your clothing depends on how often you wash and dry clean it. A garment’s accents will fade or come loose from the cloth with each cleaning or wash.

Try spot-cleaning the stain first if the adorned apparel has a stain but is otherwise clean. Use one teaspoon of liquid dishwashing soap and one cup of cold water on non-oily food or dirt stains. Blend well, and then use a cotton swab dipped in the solution to scrub the stain away. To reach the fabric and the stain on the surface of the ornaments, work between the embellishments. Use a fresh white towel or cloth to wipe up the stain as it spreads.

If the stain is oil-based, a dry cleaning solution may be necessary. The cleaning process should be repeated using a cotton swab.

Always follow the care label while washing an item. People often recommend just using dry cleaning. However, most items may be laundered at home provided the underlying fabric is machine washable. If you wish to wash the beaded or sequined apparel at home, hand cleaning is always preferred than machine washing.

You may machine wash the garment, however it’s recommended that you do it on a gentle cycle and in a mesh washing bag. Prepare to search for any decorations that may have fallen off during the washing process, which can injure your washer.

If ironing is essential, always iron on the wrong side of the fabric and use a pressing cloth between the iron and the fabric. Put the iron all the way to the highest setting. Use a clothes steamer to remove wrinkles instead of an iron.

Clothes that can be washed and dryed with metal accents

Make sure metal decorations won’t tarnish by testing a small, hidden area before washing the whole item. Acidic water, vinegar, chlorine bleach, and concentrated oxygen bleach may all degrade metal polish. Tarnish isn’t only unsightly; it may also seep deep into fabric and be tough to get out.

Following the recommendations on the care label, wash the metal-embellished goods by hand or in the gentle cycle of the washing machine with a mesh washing bag. Garments with metal decorations should be air-dried to prevent adhesive from melting in the dryer’s high heat. Dryer drum finishes may be damaged by heavy metal studs on clothing, which can lead to rust.

Ribbon-accented machine-washable garments

Before washing, removing ribbons from garments improves the cleanliness of the load. Dye bleed might occur if the ribbons aren’t colorfast.

Wash the garment in cold water to prevent the ribbons from coming undone and the colours from running if they are securely fastened. Nail polish remover may be brushed down the ribbon’s ends to prevent fraying

Embellished garments must be dry washed only.

A small number of beads or sequins on an item of clothing that is labelled “dry clean only” are fine candidates for usage with a home dry cleaning kit. Use the supplied stain remover on any stains, then dry on the lowest heat setting possible. The garment will feel revitalised, and the wrinkles will be easier to iron out.

Fabrics with elaborate embellishments, like a sequined jacket, should be sent to a dry cleaning. A professional dry cleaner can “foil” your accents to protect them from cracking and tarnishing. You could also opt to have the garments hand-cleaned instead. Some cleaning services may remove the decorations before to cleaning and then replace them afterward. It’s a big investment, so think carefully about how much you care about the outfit and how much it’s worth.
