SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL CARE
Last Updated: 02/05/2019
To ensure the highest quality and longest-lasting applications of Swarovski products, proper care is essential.

How to Clean Swarovski Crystals on Textile Items:

  • Swarovski crystal protection – When washing clothes with Swarovski crystals applied to them it is recommended that you turn them inside out before placing them in a soft wash bag and filling the drum
  • Laundry detergent type – Select a gentle wash cycle and use a mild detergent. This will all offer a certain level of protection and maintain the quality of crystals from Swarovski
  • Wash cycle strength – When washing Swarovski crystals in a washing machine, the most important factor in ensuring a secure wash is correctly applying the product, without compromising its adhesion
  • Do not use chlorine bleach!
  • Do not iron
  • The textile can be gently drycleaned using hydrocarbon. Turn inside out. To protect the crystals as much as possible, the use of a soft wash bag is recommended.
  • The textile will withstand gentle professional wet cleaning. Turn inside out. To protect the crystals as much as possible, the use of a soft wash bag is recommended.

If you follow Swarovski’s care instructions, you will restore your Swarovski crystals to their full brilliance and reflectivity. If you don’t follow these instructions, you could risk damaging the crystals and surrounding textiles. This is especially important when using a standard household washing machine, or dry cleaning service, to wash your clothes, as the rotating drum places significant mechanical force on the textiles. The larger the product employed, and the more products are applied next to each other, the greater the risk of damage.
