Wash & Care

Papillon Rebelle only works with the highest quality, premium garments. Here are some excellent wash & care tips for your Papillon Rebelle skirt.

 

Washing

Although you can machine wash tulle, pleats and lace-skirts, hand-washing is the safest method to keep your skirt fresh and neat.

Step 1

Fill a tub or washbasin with warm water.

Step 2

Add 1 tablespoon of liquid laundry detergent to the bath and stir it with your hands until it is well mixed. Use a mild detergent when cleaning your garments.

Step 3

Gently hand wash the skirt for five to 10 minutes, taking extra care to not stretch or tear the material in the process. Let the skirt soak for an additional 10 to 20 minutes.

Step 4

Drain the tub and carefully squeeze out the excess water from the garment. Rinse out the tub and refill it with cold water. Rinse the entire skirt by wafting water through it rapidly to remove the residual detergent.

Step 5

Squeeze the excess water from the garment hang it to air dry. Do not dry your Papillon Rebelle skirt in the dryer!

Storage

Hang the skirt to keep it wrinkle free. Before wearing your skirt, carefully finger comb through each layer while grabbing a firm grip on the waistline.

Wrinkles 

Lightly steam! Steam from your shower is the best way to remove wrinkles. Comb, shake and fluff. Flip the garment inside out and repeat. You can also use a vertical steamer, yielding on the side of caution to not get too close to the fabric.

You can remove wrinkles using steam from an iron, but use caution to not allow the iron to touch the tulle or pleats! You can iron the skirt inside out on lowest setting or place a piece of fabric over of the tulle.

 

Shine, dance, spin & enjoy your beautiful piece!
