No matter what you spilled on your clothes or furnishings, we can tell you how to get it out.
You Will Need
- Cashmere clothing
- Mild soap
- Cedar chest or plastic bag
- Moth cakes
- Shaving device (optional)
Pull or cut pills
Pull or carefully cut any pills from the cashmere item.
Hand wash your cashmere items in cool water with mild soap, but don't mix colors in case they bleed.
Agitate the water with your hands for a few minutes, and then let the items soak for an hour and a half.
Rinse the clothing well under cool running water.
Press out the water
Press the water out of the cashmere clothing, but don't wring the water out.
Lay the clothing flat
Lay your cashmere clothing flat on top of a dry towel after washing and reshape it as it dries. Be patient. Cashmere can take a few days to dry.
Store your cashmere clothing in a cedar chest or plastic bag. Place moth cakes in closets where your cashmere is stored or in the cedar chest.
