To ensure the highest quality and longest-lasting applications of Swarovski products, proper care is essential.
How to Clean Swarovski Crystal Jewelry on Textile Items• Swarovski crystal protection – When washing clothes with Swarovski crystals applied to them it is recommended that you turn them inside out before placing them in a soft wash bag and filling the drum
• Laundry detergent type – Select a gentle wash cycle and use a mild detergent. This will all offer a certain level of protection and maintain the quality of crystals from Swarovski
• Wash cycle strength – When washing Swarovski crystals in a washing machine, the most important factor in ensuring a secure wash is correctly applying the product, without compromising its adhesion
A light layer of dust is most easily removed with a clean, dry and antistatic cloth. To avoid unsightly fingerprints on the crystal, wear white cotton gloves during the cleaning process. For heavier dirt, lukewarm water with a little dishwashing detergent will suffice. Ideally you should use a damp and clean microfiber or thin, lint-free cotton cloth. Gently wipe each individual crystal and drywith a clean cloth. Again, wearing white cotton gloves is recommended. When cleaning with moisture, make sure to use cleaning agents that do not damage the surrounding material. By correctly cleaning your Swarovski crystals, you will restore their full reflectivity.
If you follow Swarovski’s care instructions, you will restore your Swarovski crystals to their full brilliance and reflectivity. If you don’t follow these instructions, you could risk damaging the crystals and surrounding textiles. This is especially important when using a standard household washing machine, or dry cleaning service, to wash your clothes, as the rotating drum places significant mechanical force on the textiles. The larger the product employed, and the more products are applied next to each other, the greater the risk of damage.
