Care of Your Fashions
Care Of Your Crystal's Creations Fashions
Any of the fashions made of solid slinky with no stonework or beads can be machine washed & put in the dryer on gentle cycle or line dry....or hand washed.
On other fashions.....
ALWAYS AIR OUT AFTER EACH WEARING!
DO NOT STORE IN PLASTIC BAG RIGHT AFTER WEARING
You will be able to wear many times before it may need cleaned, should actually not have to, but if & when it does...
GENTLY HAND WASH IN COLD WATER WITH A GENTLE CLEANER & HANG TO DRY.
If there are feathers, you need to remove them before cleaning & replace after.
DO NOT SEND TO DRY CLEANER UNLESS IT IS ONE THAT SPECIALIZES IN COSTUMES & GUARANTEES THAT YOU WILL NOT LOSE YOUR STONE & BEADWORK.
There are just a few select cleaners that specialize in cleaning ballroom fashions ...usually have an ozone room with a process that gets odors out.
Stonework stays on with normal wear & tear.
AVOID TUGGING & PULLING ON STONEWORK AS THIS COULD & more & likely will CAUSE THEM TO FALL OFF.
If any piece needs pressing...use a very low setting with tissue on top.
Some individuals may have a certain body chemistry (very rare), that may cause some fabrics to change color in the underarm area or cause the stonework to tarnish...if you think you may be one of those individuals, wear underarm shields, wash or have fashion laundered after each use... or both.
The best glue, I have found, to replace rhinestones is Gem Tack which can be purchased at most fabric or craft stores. It is also safe to use & non toxic...as far as dangerous fumes to breathe in that many other glues contain for doing rhinestone work that many other companies use. If a product compromises ones health...I will not use or promote it! If you can't find any in your area, contact Crystal's Creations at 440-327-7121
Disclosure.....Rhinestones will, on occasion, fall off due to over-stress on an area...if tugged, rubbed or pulled at...or if the dress is overly tight on ones body... or, in rare instances, ones body chemistry. So, if your dress fits correctly & you are losing a significant amount of stonework, it may be a defective tube of glue, so contact us immediately so we can remedy the situation. With normal use & care, the loss would be none to only minimum, maybe 1-6.
