Caring For Kilts and Scottish Accessories

If you spill any beverage or food onto your kilt, attempt as quickly as you can to wash it off by using cold water or even a bit of wool detergent.

Before bringing your kilt in to dry-clean check if your dry cleaner has cleaned kilts previously.

To wash your kilt yourself, apply a tiny amount of wool detergent on them , leave them to dry for around 10-15 minutes. After that, add just a few inches of cool water. Add two capfuls of detergent. After that, you can fold the kilt into the shape it is worn and place it into the bath so that it can soak up 30 to 40 mins. Then hang the kilt on a hanger or clothesline and then wash it thoroughly using the garden shower attachment or hose. The kilt will dry naturally. After drying, make use of a steam iron and a press cloth. Gently press the edges on each pleat.

If you’re looking for a tough and durable machine washable kilts, then a polyviscose Kilt is an ideal choice. It is possible to wash them in a machine that is set at 40 degrees.

Hang it on its loops, making sure that pleats are large enough for them to be straight.

If you have to carry your kilt to weddings and other special occasions, carrying a kilt case is an excellent investment. It’s also handy for storage of items.You aren’t required to clean your kilt each occasion you wear it, however, airing it for some time after every wear keeps it in good condition.
