Long sequin dresses are gorgeous dresses for proms but they are not easy to wear and probably even more difficult to care for. Those sparkling small pieces are dazzling to the party and tiring after the party as they are not easy to clean. As a result of the fragility of the sequins, some people take their dresses to professional cleaning rooms.
With a few practical tips, you can clean your long sequin dress at home without breaking the sequins.
Surely you should be very careful when washing the long sleeve sequin dress at home. A good strategy to protect the sequins is to turn the dress inside-out before washing it. You’d better wash your dress by hand instead of using a washing machine. Be soft and gentle when rubbing your clothes to avoid breaking the shining pieces. By making your dress inside-out, you are able to maintain the brightness of the color of your long sequin dress as well as the shimmer of the sequins.
Since the long sleeve sequin mini dress is usually worn for formal situations only, they generally don’t get much dirt. In this case, frequently cleaning which brings big risk of damaging your dress is not necessary. Most of the time, spot-cleaning is enough for accidental stain like a wine dip. Water soluble dirt is easy to dispose and all you need is a wet towel. Other spots then require the use of washing powder or liquid detergent. By spot-cleaning, you don’t have to wash the whole dress thus reduce possible damage to your long sequin dress.
After washing your long sequin prom dresses carefully, you need to dry them before storing them in the closet. For cotton dresses you may dry them by wringing them hard or using a laundry drier. Nonetheless, you are never permitted to do the same thing to a sequin dress especially a long one. The correct way is to use dry towels or sponges to absorb the water. Lay your long sequin dress flat while drying it helps protect the sequins and keep it away from wrinkling.
If you are thinking about folding the long sleeve backless sequin dress to put it in your closet, you are doing the wrong thing to your dress. I guess no one will like a wrinkled dress so store it flatly instead of folding it. If you have a stretch dress, then hanging up is not appropriate in that the sequins may be loose and easy to fall. If there is no place to put long sequin dress flat any way and you have to fold it, then put it on the top of other clothes to reduce damage.
