Caring for / Wearing your new accessory / garment




How do I take care of my collar / choker?
As with most of our items, most of our collars are embroidered.
After use, dab with a damp cloth and then store.
When not in use, store your collar flat or carefully rolled up, or hung up by the ribbons. Avoid folding the collar as it may leave marks.

If you have to clean it deeper, use water with a tiny bit of mild detergent, like for lingerie. Soak the collar for a short time, then let dry on a flat surface.
OBSERVE! - If your collar has a image/photo in it it CANNOT be soaked!
When the collar is dry, double fold a thick towel and iron carefully on lowest heat with lots of steam. Add some spray starch (for shirt collars and cuffs) if you want but be careful. Too much can leave stains or make your collar uncomfortable to wear. And spray on the BACK only! After the ironing, leave it to cool properly before removing it.
To increase the shine on PVC collars / chokers you can use WD40 sprayed on a cloth first that you wipe your collar /choker carefully with. - Do NOT spray WD40 directly on embroidery as it will miss-colour the embroidery!

Remember that the collars are jewellery and therefore, delicate.
