Wedding dresses and elegant evening dresses are expensive garments and, for those who wear them, they also have a great emotional value, that is why it is important to treat them with care and not to undergo wrong and “stressful” washings. Although each wedding dress is different in fabric, color, inserts, beaded decorations or sequins, the best choice is to rely on a tested, delicate cycle, with the right balance between mechanical action and dosage of detergents.
The most common spots that are found on wedding dresses at the end of the ceremony are: make up, sweat, wine, grease and, on most aftermath, grass and earth. All these stains, if not removed properly, can oxidize, create yellowish streaks and irreparably ruin the dress.
IMESA suggests the OPTIWASH DELICATE 30 washing cycle, specific for delicate garments, most of all for those made of silk and viscose.
This is a specific cycle that, thanks to the control of the rotation of the basket and the alternation of movement/break, guarantees a minimum stress of the fibers during the washing phase and a light and spin phase respectful of the fabrics. No pre-wash phase and the maximum temperature reached is 30 ºC.
Working at low temperatures, it is essential to achieve extreme precision in the dosage of detergents to ensure effective chemical action on stains. A mechanical action controlled and balanced on the basis of temperature, allows the chemistry to act fully in the correct time.
The detergents used are: DELI TEN, the deo detergent for delicate garments, FLUFFY TEN, the silk protein concentrate softener with anti-infelting effect and a small dose of OXYE TEN, the latest generation additive that, active already at 20°C, has a strong whitening and stain removal action. OXYE TEN does not damage the fibers and is recommended for even the most delicate.
