Soak the Scarf: Immerse the linen scarf in the soapy water and gently swish it around. Allow it to soak for about 10 to 15 minutes, ensuring the detergent penetrates the fibres.
Gentle Agitation: Gently agitate the scarf by squeezing it lightly. Avoid twisting or wringing the fabric, as this can cause creasing and damage the delicate fibres.
Rinse Thoroughly: Empty the basin/sink and refill it with clean, lukewarm water. Rinse the scarf by gently pressing and squeezing it to remove any remaining soap residue. Repeat this rinsing process if necessary.
Removing Excess Water: To remove excess water from the scarf, avoid wringing or twisting. Instead, gently squeeze out the water or roll the scarf in a clean towel and press lightly.
Drying the Scarf: Lay the damp scarf flat on a clean, dry towel or on a drying rack. Reshape the scarf, if needed, by gently stretching it into its original shape. Avoid hanging it, as the weight of the wet fabric may cause stretching or distortion. Let it air dry naturally, away from direct sunlight or heat sources.
