Warning! Don’t send your kilt to the dry cleaner unless absolutely necessary. If soiled, wipe with a damp cloth or use a little Woolite to gently wipe off the stain. The kilt may be brushed with a soft brush to get rid of dirt or aired our in the air or sun to freshen. The dry cleaning process leaches out the natural oil that makes a kilt stain resistant. Basting of the pleats is recommended for this type of cleaning.
Keep the kilt in a garment bag to protect from dust and moths. Use cedar blocks or chips stored in a nylon hose or sachets or lavender & rosemary. Avoid using moth balls which have a naphthalene chemical that is highly poisonous, especially when the kilt is steam pressed.
Use a cotton or polyester pressing cloth at all times. Never put an iron directly on the wool.
Store your kilt hanging up to keep it looking nice. Use a clip hanger or hang with the loops in the waistband and use a notched hanger. Buckling the straps during storage will cause unnecessary ridges to form.
Fold the kilt in half with the pleats inside, to store in a suitcase. The top pleated area may be folded or rolled down. Never roll your kilt in a kilt carrier or by other method. It will warp the set of the pleats.
To avoid wrinkling, smooth the pleats before sitting down and then push slightly down in the middle of the kilt to avoid exposure. To get into a car, sit on the seat sideways and slide your legs into the car.
