Caring for Crystal Rhinestone Garments

Caring for Crystal Rhinestone Garments

At Flaio, we understand that each crystal-embellished garment we create is not just a piece of clothing but a delicate work of art. To ensure the longevity and sparkle of these exquisite pieces, special care and attention are paramount. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to care for your crystal rhinestone garments, keeping them as luminous as the day they were crafted.

Handling with Care

The first step in caring for your crystal garments is mindful handling. When wearing these glittering pieces, it’s essential to avoid layering them under other garments. Friction can cause the stones to loosen or fall off. Also, be cautious about the surfaces you sit on. Rough and uneven textures can snag the crystals, leading to potential damage or leaving unwanted imprints on the fabric.

Washing Instructions

When it’s time to clean your crystal clothing, remember: gentleness is key. We recommend washing these garments alone, without other items, to avoid any unnecessary friction or collision with hard objects like zippers or buttons that could dislodge the stones. Turn the garment inside out and use cold water for machine washing. Ideally, place it in a mesh, washer-safe clothing bag. This not only protects the delicate crystal work during the washing process but also captures any stones that might come loose.

Drying and Storage

Never put your crystal garments in a dryer. The intense heat and tumbling action are likely to damage the fabric and dislodge the rhinestones. Instead, opt for air drying or hang drying to maintain the integrity of the fabric and the crystals. Store these items in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, which can fade the fabric and affect the adhesive of the crystals.

In Case of Loose Stones

Despite the best care, there might be instances when a stone or two falls off. This is a natural aspect of wear and is not indicative of a flaw in craftsmanship. At Flaio, we understand this and are happy to provide additional hotfix crystals to replace any that might be lost. This service is part of our commitment to ensuring that your Flaio garment remains as spectacular as ever.

By following these simple yet essential steps, you can ensure that your Flaio crystal-embellished garments remain a dazzling part of your wardrobe for years to come. Remember, each garment is a treasure, embodying elegance and craftsmanship, and deserves to be treated as such. With proper care, your Flaio pieces will continue to shine and make a statement wherever you go.
