Cleaning wedding dress and storing
Ever thought of what to do with your wedding dress after the wedding reception is over? Whether you are keeping it for sentimental reasons or keeping it for your daughter's wedding, whatever the reasons it may be, you have to clean it first before you store it.

Stains that left too long on your wedding dress is not a good idea. That is why the cleaning wedding dress must be done within 30 days. The longer you leave the stains on your wedding dress, the more difficult it is to remove it.

Champagne and any sugar-based stains are the most difficult to remove, you should discuss it with your cleaner to pretreat your wedding dress first.

All beads on should be sewn and secured before cleaning wedding dress. Glued-on beads are easily damaged by cleaning solvents. It is wise to take a sample bead and test it at the cleaners. Leave the bead in the solvent for 10 mins. Look for any damage on the surface on the bead. If tarnish occurs, you have to ask the cleaner for advise or change the cleaning solvent to a milder one.

After the cleaning wedding dress is finished, it is time to store it. Never store your wedding dress in any plastic sealed bags, gases that are trapped in the bag will cause the wedding dress to turn yellowish. Besides, sealed plastic bags can also cause moisture to be trapped and contribute further damage. If your wedding dress is made of natural material, it is recommended that you store it in a breathing environment.

Use acid-free tissue to place it in-between fabric.

Your wedding dress should be taken out every 5 years for inspection. Check for new stains if there are any. Remember to wear gloves to inspect as finger oils may be left on the wedding dress causing oil stains.

Now it is time to look for a location to store it. Storing it beneath your bed or middle of the curboard is recommended. Look for a location where air is circulated, cool and dry. If you follow this steps carefully, your wedding gown will be preserved nicely for your grandchildren to treasure.
