Please follow our care and laundering instructions as provided with your purchase. Care advice for polyester, wool-poly and wool will differ. -Academic dress is intended for wear in ceremony only -Avoid eating or drinking when wearing -Satin hoods and facings may stain -Take care when handling (pining or fingernails may damage satin fabric) For any satin linings or facings: -Dry clean P(30) POLY -Dry clean A 50+ SHAMUSE -Do not soak -Do not bleach -Do not wring -Drip dry in shade -Do not tumble dry -Warm iron if desired (do not put hot iron directly onto satin!) For best wear and drape of academic dress, we recommend to wear your garment after laundering or hanging. Wearing directly after being folded means some creases may appear. If you can’t gently iron or steam your garment, hang on a coat hanger to help the creases fall out. Every George H. Lilley Regalia gown comes with a complimentary robe bag. We recommend using this bag for storage and travel. Allowing your gown to air regularly will assist to keep your garment in best condition. If at any time you are not sure about the best care of your garment, please contact us, the manufacturer, for advice.
