A new lease of life
Kilt cleaning, pleat realigning and professional pressing
The kilt can be worn for a long time without being cleaned and still look good. This is due to the magical properties of wool and the twill weave. Soiling and stains are less noticeable on the uneven surface and it recovers from creasing better than plain-weave fabrics.
However, there comes a time when it does need freshened up, it has suffered some soilage or it has come into someone else’s care.
I have successfully cleaned and pressed kilts that have been around since the beginning of the 1900s.
I do not use dry cleaning chemicals to clean the kilt.
Before pressing with my professional pressing equipment, the pleats are realigned and basted together accurately to ensure the pleats do not flair.
