Here are our top tips and tricks on how to treat your favorite Prinz Berlin cashmere accessories, to make them last a lifetime. Enjoy!
> LET THE AIR DO ITS MAGIC
Our Prinz cashmere doesn't have to be washed every single time after wearing it. Leave it outside in a clean and fresh space and let it rest overnight, the air will do its magic. Odours will disappear, and the fine hair will repair. In case you can't wait overnight, put it in a bag in the freezer for one to two hours and then gently steam it. You can also use a gentle lavender mist or plat-based spray to refresh it. After that, it will be soft, like new!
> ONLY WASH WHEN ABSOLUTELY NECCESSARY - BY HAND ONLY!
If you have the feeling that your Prinz Berlin accessory needs a wash to be fresh and clean again, it is best to always wash it by hand. Use a mild detergent and cold to lukewarm water. Soak your cashmere accessory for about 20 minutes without kneading or twisting it. Then rinse it and gently squeeze out any excess water. Never use bleach or fabric softener as these can damage the material. Instead, use mild detergent and wipe away any residue.
> DRY IT WHEN IT GETS WET
After a stroll on a rainy or snowy day or after washing it, never use a dryer for your Prinz cashmere! Instead, press a towel against it to soak up excess water and then place it somewhere clean and flat to let it dry. It might take a while until it is completely dry, depending on the humidity of the environment. Be patient and avoid using heat!
> REGULAR GROOMING MAKES IT LAST
After waring your favorite Prinz products for a while, you will notice little fuzz balls. Don't panic - it's natural! The little fuzz, also called pilling, is totally normal on natural fibers and is an indication for the quality and purity of the fabric. It occurs, especially when the products are brand new. To keep your cashmere accessories neat and clean, we recommend the following: Remove the small knots simply by hand by plucking them out and use our Prinz Berlin cashmere comb to give your companion a new shine!
> STORE YOUR CASHMERE ACCESSORY CORRECTLY
To ensure your cashmere accessory stays in pristine condition, you need to store it properly! Avoid contact with sharp objects such as jewelry or zippers and hanging on a hanger as this will stretch and damage the material. Instead, store it flat in a closet or drawer to protect it from dust and dirt.
Cashmere accessories are luxurious and soft, but also delicate and require special care. By following these simple tips, you can rest assured that your cashmere accessories will always remain in pristine condition and will give you years of pleasure.
