Real Care For Faux Fur


Gorgeous statement faux furs like this one (8526RS) are growing in popularity, and for good reason. They hit that perfect fashion sweet spot between comfortable and stylish. Better yet, they’re incredibly easy to care for. You can keep your favourite faux looking like a million bucks right at home, no dry cleaning necessary!

The most important thing to remember is that you don’t have to wash your faux fur as frequently as other types of fabric. Unless you’ve spilled something in the fur, you can maintain your coat with only occasional laundering. Just give it a good shake every time you take it off and make sure it has enough room in the closet to hang freely. Also, take a moment to brush the fur with a wide-toothed metal comb every other time you wear it.

Many modern faux furs can go through the washing machine with a few precautions. If yours is one of these (check the care label), put your garment by itself in the washer. Small items (collars, vests, hats) should go into a lingerie bag for protection. Set the water temperature to cold, use mild detergent, and run the fur through the shortest gentle cycle.

Even if your fur is washer-friendly, never put it through the dryer or use a hair dryer. Either method creates friction which can ruin your fur’s texture. Instead, lay the garment flat on a towel and roll it to remove most of the water. Hanging is the best way to dry faux fur, and you should use a hangar to help coats or vests keep their shape. Once the item is dry, fluff the fur back into place and it’s ready to return to your closet! Faux fur is the ultimate in effortless Fall fashion.
