Fill a tub with cold or lukewarm water. Add the softest detergent, preferably something natural in a small quantity. You can also use a baby shampoo as it is not very harsh. Mix the water and detergent to create some foam.


Submerge Your shawl into the tub and gently let it soak the water and soap mixture. Do not shake it vigorously.

Via The Laundress


Let it stay there for upto 15 or 20 minutes. You can rub it very gently in case there is a stain in some area.



Rinse it with clean cold water multiple times to drain excess soap


Do not wring the shawl dry. Place it flat on a cloth or towel and let it naturally dry. Do not use a dryer or direct sunlight as pashmina is sensitive to excessive temperatures and it may harm the shawl.

Whenever needed, you can also send it for dry cleaning to a skilled person who can deal with pashmina shawls. the local shops mostly do not use the actual dry-cleaning technology so it is always good to be sure.

Use the care tips for your valuable pashmina shawls to allow them to last for generations to come!
