GENERAL CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR POLYESTER AND CRUSHED VELVET:
While machine washing polyester and crushed velvets is a perfectly fine choice, you should put the garment in a mesh washing bag, which will help to protect the delicate nap from damage that can be caused by metal fasteners on other clothing. It's also a good idea to wash your velvets alongside other delicates, to avoid abrasion damage that can be caused by heavy fabrics like denim.
Always air-dry velvet clothing by laying it flat after washing.
GENERAL IRONING INSTRUCTIONS FOR POLYESTER AND CRUSHED VELVET:
Most fabric stores carry a board coated in a rough, coarse cloth that is designed for steaming high-pile materials like velvet. To use the board, place the nap side of the velvet face down on the surface. With the steamer or iron on its lowest setting, test a small area by holding the steamer or iron at least a half-inch above and slowly passing it across the test area. Turn the piece over and inspect the nap side for any issues. Be especially careful with polyester velvet, which can be easily affected by too much heat. If you detect no issues with the fabric, steam the rest of the garment, gently pressing it with your hands as you go. If you need to increase the steam to get better results, do so in small increments. Don't let the steamer or iron pause over one area for too long to avoid damage to the item.
For a double-sided velvet item, such as a scarf, clip the fabric to a skirt hanger, being sure to protect the clipped area with tissue. Test an area of the velvet, as detailed above, and then begin steaming on one side. To help the process along, pull the bottom of the textile gently as you pass the steam over it. When you've finished one side, you may find that you don't need to steam the other. But if you do, simply repeat the previous steps until the item is wrinkle-free.
