The maintenance of net lehenga choli requires you to understand the specific details such as embellishments, embroidery, design, and material.
#1 Fabric Maintenance
The fabric of the lehenga plays a crucial part in maintaining the outfit. You need to prevent them from getting torn, faded, or crinkled. Net lehenga cholis are prone to get torn since they are composed of mesh fabric which can easily get in contact with any pointy object. Moreover, they are easily creased, especially if they are made of linen.
So don’t fold your linen lehengas and cholis, instead, hang them on the hanger. In the case of cotton outfits, they are easy to maintain though you are advised to hang them rather than folding. Always use a fabric softener when washing your outfit and if possible, avoid machine wash in total when it comes to lehenga cholis. In the case of silk, dry-cleaning is the best option, as washing it will shrink the fabric.

When it comes to storing lehenga cholis with heavy embellishments, always use a wrapping paper or soft muslin cloth to wrap the outfit. This will prevent the decorations from tangling with each other. When storing the lehenga, use naphthalene balls to prevent insect invasion.
