Product Care

Rhodium Plated Sterling Silver

To ensure rhodium plated jewellery lasts as long as possible, keep it clean with a mixture of mild liquid shampoo and a little water. Do not use any chemical cleaners on rhodium plated items, or ultrasonic cleaners that utilise chemicals. Never use polishing cloths intended for use on gold or silver jewellery. Non-abrasive, lint free, streak free, micro-fiber cloths are ideal. Let all makeup and perfume dry before putting on rhodium plated sterling silver jewellery. Wash any make up off rhodium plated sterling silver jewellery with water and store in a protective box to avoid damage and wear when not worn. Carefully looked after rhodium plated sterling silver jewellery will keep its fantastic, highly reflective white finish and you can enjoy its beauty for years.

Scarves

Cashmere & Wool

Your Bharosa  scarf is an investment that can last a lifetime, keeping its looks from season to season and remaining as soft and luxurious as the first time you wore it.  We would recommend hand-washing. Dry-cleaning uses harsh chemicals that make it feel less special and eventually shorten its life. Careful hand-washing gives it a soft and luxurious finish. We recommend that you use a laundry liquid designed especially for cashmere and wool. It should be non-biological and without bleach or enzymes. If you are putting your scarf away for the summer, fold it and place it in a plastic bag. Store with a natural moth repellent such as a lavender sachet or cedar balls.

Silk

Machine-washing a silk  scarf is likely to damage the material, so avoid it. Perhaps the best way to clean any silk scarf is to take it to the dry cleaner for professional washing and ironing. However, hand washing is also an option. If there are any stains on the scarf, start by using a stain remover. Apply a small amount of stain remover to a cotton swab and gently test it on a small corner of the scarf. If colour comes off onto the cotton swab, use a gentler stain remover or water the stain remover down and try again. If no colour comes off on the swab, cover the stain with a thin layer of stain remover. Next, fill a sink with warm water and add a small amount of laundry detergent for delicate fabric. Place the scarf in the water and swirl it around for a few minutes. After that, rinse it under a gentle stream of cool water until no soap remains on the fabric.

 

To dry the scarf, start by squeezing it softly to remove excess water. Next, lay it down on a towel, roll it up inside the towel, and squeeze the towel gently. Once the scarf is only damp to the touch, put the scarf on an ironing board and turn the iron to the lowest possible setting. Next, pass it over the back of the scarf. Avoid pushing down too hard, or holding the iron in any one spot for longer than a second or two. The scarf will likely be completely dry within just a few minutes.
