1. How to Wash Organza Sarees
Always start by water testing a small portion of your precious organza saree for water reaction. If the fabric undergoes any stretching, shrinking, tightening, or wrinkling - then Dry clean your organza saree or follow the Wash/Care instructions given by the saree manufacturer.
If your Organza saree stays normal even after the “water test” then you can hand wash it.
- Start by adding 1-2 spoons of mild detergent to a bucket of cold water.
- Gently soak the entire saree in the water for up to 30 minutes.
- After that rinse the garment with running cold water until all the soap is removed.
