A Guide to Caring for Your Sequin Dress With Our Silk Detergent

Sequin dresses are the epitome of glamour and sophistication, adding a touch of sparkle to any special occasion. Especially popular throughout the Christmas season, proper sequin care is essential to keep your dress dazzling. In this guide, we'll take you through the steps to washing with our silk detergent and care for your sequin dress, keeping it radiant for years to come.

Silk Detergent

Spot Cleaning:

For minor stains or spills, opt for spot cleaning. Use a gentle, mild detergent and a soft cloth or sponge to dab at the stained area, such as our silk detergent or sportswear detergent. Patience is key – take your time to ensure the stain is lifted without causing harm to the fabric.

Turn Inside Out:

Before washing, turn your sequin dress inside out, this helps protect the sequins from friction and reduces the risk of them snagging on other items in the wash.

Use a Mesh Bag:

Place your sequin dress in a mesh laundry bag to provide an extra layer of protection during the wash - this prevents your dress from touching other items or the machine.

Select a Gentle Cycle:

Always opt for a gentle cycle on your washing machine, such as the delicates setting. Use cold water to prevent colour fading and potential damage to the sequins. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals, as these can tarnish the sparkle and degrade the fabric.

Mild Detergent is Key:

Choose a delicate detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics. Harsh chemicals can strip the sequins of their lustre and degrade the fabric more quicker. Our silk detergent effectively cleans your dress without causing harm and is scented with Bergamot and Sandalwood that gorgeously scents your dress.

Refresh, Don't Wash

In between washes, if your sequin dress is not dirty enough to be put through the wash then give it a spritz with our dry clean spray for clothes. Our Clothing Spritz is scented with White Tea and Mint that refreshes the fabric so you can give it a spray to remove odours and dirt. 


Air Dry Only:

Never tumble dry your sequin dress, as the heat and agitation can damage the delicate sequins and fabric. Instead, lay it flat on a clean, dry towel to air dry. Shape the dress to its original form and allow it to dry completely before wearing or storing.

Store with Care:

In the time between wears, store your dress in a cool, dark place, ideally covered in a garment bag to protect it from dust and light.

Caring for your sequin dress may require a bit of extra attention, but the radiant results are well worth it. By following these simple steps, and using our silk detergent, you can ensure that your dress continues to dazzle at every special occasion, maintaining its sparkle and shine for years to come. So, go ahead and embrace the glamour – your sequin dress deserves the royal treatment!
