How to clean tree skirts before and after Christmas

December 19, 2018

Christmas tree skirts are often valuable and treasured holiday items.
Some tree skirts are very costly, while others may be family heirlooms.

Regardless of their original or sentimental value, tree skirts should be handled with great care.

because they are adorned with beads, sequins, appliques, lace, felt,
quilted designs, multicolored prints, and other types of decorative
trim. In most cases, these decorative trims used glues and adhesives
that show little resistance to cleaning.

If water or other liquids
spill on the skirt, blot the area with white handkerchiefs, cotton
towels, or paper towels. Use cool water to aid in removing stains. Local
stain removal treatments may be the only safe method for handling tree
skirts. In some cases, stains cannot be removed without damage. Bring
your skirt to us for assistance if stain removal becomes necessary.
