Saris of silk, cotton, zari and other traditional embroidery, patch and sequence works look amazing during festive season or wedding season. They are never affordable, especially due to the work done on them and the fabric used to make these fantastic looking saris. Due to the fabric and work done on the saree, it becomes very difficult to maintain them. They are very delicate and cannot be washed like other daily wear clothing. All the Indian traditional saris require special care regime to be followed in order to maintain them for a longer period.

We all must have got that one silk saree from our mother, mother in law or grandmother for wedding or any other special traditional event. They have kept these saris for decades without even a minor cut in the fabric or faded spots of colors.

Here are a couple of tips to keep your saree as good as new:

-        Wash it before storing!

Some of us lazy ladies try to store away saree without washing. Even though you wore it for once, cosmetics, traces of perfume, sweat and other such agents can cause yellowing of fabric, affecting its color. It is better to wash the saree with delicate detergent or hire a dry cleaner for that purpose before storing it away.

-        Be gentle while washing!

All the Indian traditional saris are made up of delicate fabric. They cannot bear the hardness of the rough detergents with soda and such other harsh chemicals present in regular detergent solutions. You must use gentle detergents or take professional help in keeping your saris as good as new.

-        Save from moths!

Moths are the biggest enemy of any saree in storage. All your Indian traditional saree shopping done for the years can go in vain if the moths will make tiny little holes in the fabric or cause faded spots on its surface. Store your saris, wrapped in tissue paper in airtight package along with a couple of naphthalene balls with it. This will prevent all kinds of moth attacks on the saree.

With these simple tips, it is very easy to keep the traditional saris as good as new for decades. The tips are simple, time saving and easy on your pocket so do give them consideration.
