Before you begin, test our technique on your fabric. You can use the underside of a skirt, the bottom of cushions or the back of a sofa. Please be aware these solutions may NOT work on all velvets.
First, try steaming the fabric. Afterwards, use a fine tooth comb to brush the nap or pile of the fabric. If steaming doesn’t work, you can use a fine mist spray bottle to apply a small amount of water to the fabric. Then, take a comb or even your hand to wipe the fabric, lifting the fibers up as you go. This will give them the opportunity to return to their original position.
