How to clean vintage clothes!

Caring for vintage clothing can be a rather daunting and nerve-wracking experience. In particular the cleaning part.

Not so long ago, I wrote an in-depth article about “How to store vintage clothing like a pro”, and I hope that it will help answer a lot of questions regarding the dos and don’ts of storing your precious vintage pieces the proper way. For the purpose of giving my readers the best advice on storing vintage that one possibly could give, I interviewed a textile conservator with over twenty-five years of experience in handling antique textiles in museums.

If you are a true vintage aficionado in awe of exquisite clothes from the 1930s and 1940s, you are surely familiar with Jade Stavri-Radcliff’s shop, Scarlet Rage Vintage. She is an extraordinary lady known for her prodigious collection of clothes predating the 1960s and for finding more than one Holy-Grail of vintage fashion for her discerning clients.

Jade is also the founder and Editor in Chief of The Vintage Woman Magazine, of which I’m a big fan. She has a widely successful and very addictive YouTube channel where she entertains and educates-with great panache-about all-things-vintage.

I’m thrilled to present Scarlet Rage Vintage as my Vintage Shop of The Week!
