How can we store and maintain Kerala Saree?

Storing and maintaining Kerala sarees properly is important to keep them in good condition and extend their lifespan. Here are some tips for storing and maintaining Kerala sarees:

  • Cleaning: Before storing, make sure the sarees are clean and free of any stains. Dry cleaning is recommended for delicate sarees made from silk or other delicate fabrics.

  • Fold carefully: Fold the sarees neatly and loosely to avoid creases and wrinkles. Use acid-free tissue paper to wrap delicate fabrics to prevent them from discoloring or yellowing over time.

  • Use a cotton cloth: Wrap each saree in a soft cotton cloth to protect it from dust and other elements.

  • Store in a cool and dry place: Store the sarees in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Avoid storing sarees in damp or humid areas, as this can cause mold and mildew.

  • Store in a moth-proof container: Use a moth-proof container or bag to store your sarees and protect them from moths and other insects.

  • Avoid stacking: Avoid stacking sarees on top of each other, as this can cause pressure marks and damage to the delicate fabric.

  • Rotate regularly: Regularly rotate your sarees to ensure that they are not exposed to the same conditions for extended periods.

  • Handle with care: When wearing a saree, handle it carefully to avoid snagging or damaging the fabric. Take care when pinning and draping the saree to avoid putting too much pressure on delicate areas.
