Fur Tips: Cleaning

When a fur coat needs cleaning, it is essential that you take your garment to a fur specialist, not a dry cleaner. Fur requires a very special cleaning process that most dry cleaners cannot do.

Even if there is no visible dirt or stains, fur should be cleaned at least once a year. Cleaning can remove dirt particles and chemicals, and involves a glazing procedure that improves the lustre of the fur.

This might seem like a lot of effort, particularly if the coat does not appear dirty, but keep in mind that the coat will last much longer if cared for properly.

  1. What ever you do, do not use a dry cleaner to clear your fur….. we see more dry cleaners coming into our store in nyc looking to repairs furs that they have ruined by trying to clean via their dry cleaning process

  2. Thanks for this post. I have to take a similar dress to the dry cleaners in Los Angeles, but I always get a little worried that they will return it ruined. I know this is an invalid fear, but every time I go to any dry cleaners I feel this way. I guess it’s kind of funny.
