Cleaning Velvet

w/e 23/01/17

Although slightly less fashionable than it used to be, velvet garments, trims and accessories are becoming more popular again. It's also a luxurious material to use for curtains and furnishing to add a classic look to any room.
Velvet can be made from cotton (normally for curtains etc.), silk (for fine evening wear), nylon, rayon and acetate, or a even mixture of these fibres. You should always find out the composition of the material as some are far more delicate and likely to damage than others.
The problem with treating velvet for stains is crushing the pile, which can completely ruin the look of the fabric and consequently the garment. Acetate and silk velvets are the most delicate and should always be dry cleaned. Red velvet made of silk will often freely run it's colour if you add any water to it.
Any "Tamping" to remove stains should be exceptionally light to reduce the mechanical action and you should always treat in the direction of the pile, which will only run in one direction. This also means that when you need to flush through with water you should do so from the reverse side, using a spray from behind the stained area so the pile is lifted by the water as it pushes through the fabric. Use absorbent cloths on the right side to catch the water and any of the dirt you're trying to remove.
Most velvets are dry clean only and can be easily crushed if washed so for complete garment cleaning our suggestion is to professionally dry clean.
If you have to finish a velvet item then use steam while the garment or fabric is hanging. Directing the steam from a kettle is often best but don't brush or touch the fabric while it's wet or hot from the steam or you could crush the pile and always finish in the direction the pile runs. Use a wide soft brush when the fabric is cool but never let the pile come into contact with any solid objects until it is completely dry.
Draylon suites, settees and covers are often more resilient than garment velvet and don't crush so readily. To clean these you can use a wet and dry vacuum and full instructions can be found in the cleaning and stain removal sections.
With all types of suite there is often a grimy patch at the level where heads rub on the fabric. This is normally just head and neck grease, which you can remove fairly easily by spraying the area with a mixture of water and ammonia (about a 20% mix), lightly brushing it in and then using the wet and dry vacuum hand tool to clean in the normal way.
