Care Instructions

CARE OF STERLING SILVER

Sterling silver is a precious metal and may require cleaning from time to time. Using a small amount of quality silver polish such as Goddards Silver Foam on the sponge provided, or  Goddards Long Life Silver Polish on a soft cloth, gently rub the silver  Several times. Then rinse the silver thoroughly in warm water and dry carefully. This will remove the tarnish and dullness, keeping your sterling silver as shiny as when you bought it.  Please note that chlorine, bleach and salt accelerate tarnishing.

 

CARE OF 100% LINEN

Linen is made of natural fibres which require special care. If unbleached, we recommend dry cleaning as it is difficult to iron. If it is bleached, we recommend washing on a warm wash and ironing while  yet damp. Irish linen is rightly one of the most popular fabrics in the world and will last for years and years, becoming softer and increasingly easy to iron over time.

 

CARE OF VICTORIAN ROBES

These are made of finest cotton lawn, and with lace that is Irreplaceable. Each pattern of lace was unique to a village of the British Isles. If a girl married out of her village, she had to promise to cease making lace for a number of years to guarantee that the pattern would remain unique. She would then learn how to make the pattern of her husband’s village. To ensure that washing is as gentle as possible, we recommend washing in a net bag so that the spin cycle will not pull the different parts of the dress against each other.
