To clean your Sofia Vera garments, hand-wash only in lukewarm water using a natural soap, gentle shampoo or soap for delicate fabrics. Do not put in the washing machine or tumble drier. Dry on a hanger out of direct sunlight with your garment inside-out to preserve your garment's colour. For best results, iron while damp inside out or use steam iron.
Hanging your garment on a hanger in the fresh air is often enough and can help preserve your garment for longer as well as being a great choice for the environment. Remember to turn your garment inside out first, as colours can fade in the bright sunshine.
Steaming also an effective alternative to giving your garment a re-fresh prior to wearing. The garment must be steamed a minimum of 48 hours before wearing, to ensure it has completely dried. As the steam cools it moistens the garment and if the garment is not fully dry, it will crease more easily.
