Daily Care and Maintenance

Regular Brushing:

  • Use a soft-bristled brush to gently comb through the faux fur.
  • Brush in the direction of the fur to prevent tangles and matting.
  • Regular brushing will help keep the fur looking fluffy and vibrant.
Shake It Out:
  • Give your fur product a gentle shake after wearing it to remove dust and loose particles.
  • This will help maintain the fur's natural fluffiness.
Spot Cleaning:
  • For small stains, use a damp cloth with a mild soap solution or stain remover like Folex.
  • Gently blot the stain, avoid rubbing which can damage the fibers.
  • Use a clean damp cloth to remove any soap residue.
Washing Your Faux Fur

Machine Washing:
  • Use a gentle cycle with cold water to avoid heat damage to the fur.
  • Use a mild detergent that is free from bleach and fabric softeners.
  • Turn the item inside out and place it in a mesh laundry bag to protect it.
Hand Washing:
  • Fill a bucket or bath tub with cold water and a small amount of mild detergent.
  • Gently submerge the item and agitate the water with your hands.
  • Rinse thoroughly with cold water until all soap is removed.
Drying Your Faux Fur

Avoid Heat:
  • Never use a dryer for your faux fur products. High heat can damage the fibers and permanently alter the texture.
  • Lay the product flat on a clean, dry towel and roll it up to remove excess water.
  • Unroll and reshape the coat or pants, then lay it flat on a drying surface.
  • Never use an iron or hair straightener on the fur. 
Air Drying:
  • Allow the item to air dry completely in a well-ventilated area.
  • Avoid direct sunlight and heat sources like radiators.

Storing Your Faux Fur

Proper Hanging:

  • Use a broad-shouldered hanger to support the weight of the fur item and maintain its shape.
  • Avoid wire hangers which can distort the shoulders of a coat.


  • Store your item in a breathable garment bag to protect it from dust and dirt.
  • Avoid plastic bags which can trap moisture and cause damage.
Cool and Dry:
  • Store your fur in a cool, dry place. 
  • Avoid basements and attics which can be humid and cause mold growth.
Professional Cleaning:
  • For deep cleaning, take your faux fur to a professional cleaner who specializes in faux fur.
  • Avoid regular dry cleaners who may not have experience with synthetic fibers.
  • Always check to make sure they don't use a heat cleaning method.
Final Tips
  • Keep your coat away from open flames and excessive heat sources to prevent melting.
  • Never leave your fur coat in a hot car, tent, or in any place reaching over 120 degrees fahrenheit.
