Machine Washing:

A safe alternative If you prefer to wash your faux fur coat at home, machine washing is an option, provided you follow certain guidelines. Use the gentle or delicate cycle to minimize agitation. Ensure that the water temperature is cool and avoid using any heat during the drying process, as high temperatures can crimp the fur and ruin the fabric. Air dry only! Opt for a mild, gentle detergent specifically formulated for delicate garments. Once the washing cycle is complete, allow the coat to air dry naturally. After it dries, gently fluff the fur with a brush to restore its fullness and natural appearance.

Hand Washing and Spot Cleaning:

For smaller stains or localized dirt, hand washing or spot cleaning can be effective. You can use a stain remover, detergent and water with a cloth to remove a stain.  Rinse thoroughly with cool water to remove any remaining soap residue. Avoid excessive wringing or twisting the fabric, as this can damage the faux fur. Instead, gently squeeze out excess water and lay the coat flat on a clean towel to air dry.  Fluff the fur back to its original state with a brush.
