Advice for those who choose to wash away a stain on your gown yourself
This is a guide for you who want to wash your Baptismal gown yourself, but it is done entirely at your own risk.
It is not possible to water-wash silk dresses, these gowns need dry cleaning.. Remember that linen dresses lose their beautiful glossy surface when you water wash them. A small stain works to remove if you do not soak the entire dress. If you feel unsafe, the dry cleaning will help you to remove stains for you. Hang the dress in the shower on a hanger, which does not shed color when it gets wet. Soak up the stain with water and then take some baby shampoo or soapy soap on a wet white cloth or a topzy and rub lightly.
Always wash the dress after use if it becomes stained. If you wait until the next use, the stain may have become permanent or very difficult to remove. It is much more fun to create a perfect Christening gown for the next baptism or to leave as a memory to your children.
At Twilfit on line you can buy a very good silk soap.
If you wash off a stain, you can rinse easily on the stain. If you have a satin dress then you need to rinse the entire Baptism gown with the shower, otherwise it can become cirkel after drying if the whole dress is not soaked.
Let it hang and dry on the hanger. Easily stretch tips in moist condition for easier ironing.
Here you can read about the material properties of different dresses.
Always wash your dress without the guardian angel on the Christening garment. It is easy to crack and sew again. If you choose to flush the dress lightly in the shower, make sure the guardian angel is dry. You can wrap some plastic wrap around it or wipe it off immediately.
Store your angel in a vacuum bag or wrap it in plastic wrap when you store it for an extended period of time so it is not in contact with air. Since it stays nice for a long time, then it is a jewelery.
