How to Care for Modal Fabric?

Answer

Modal, or rayon, fabric should be hand washed or dry cleaned. If hand washing, use cool to warm water and gentle suds. Gently squeeze the suds through the fabric, but make sure not to wring or twist the fabric. Once thoroughly cleaned, rinse all suds from the fabric and place on a hanger to let dry. The fabric can be pressed (inside out) on medium heat, and bleached (be careful of choline bleach, it may make the fabric bleed).
