Chiffon is a sheer and delicate fabric 
that can be made from nylon, silk, polyester or rayon.
 Chiffon has been used as an opaque fabric
 for curtains, dresses or other special garments. 

As most chiffon fabrics can only be dry-cleaned, 
be sure to read your item's label carefully before washing the fabric.
 In some cases, a chiffon fabric can be hand-washed
 with a mild detergent and air dried.

Stay away from high heat when cleaning or drying chiffon
 due to the damage it could cause to the fabric's fibers.

HOW TO:          
·                          1  Fill the sink or bucket with cool or lukewarm water. 

                               Do not use hot water or the chiffon may shrink.
                  2  Add a capful of mild hand-washing detergent 
                      to the water and use your hand to mix the detergent well.
                  3  Place the fabric into the water and allow it to soak for a few minutes.

                   4   Stir the fabric in the soapy water to clean it thoroughly.
                        You may also scrub the garment against a washboard.
                 5  Empty the sink or bucket and refill with it with cold water.
                 6   Swirl the garment around in the water to remove the detergent.
                       You may have to do this a few times to thoroughly remove all traces 
                       of the detergent.
                7   Squeeze as much water from the garment as possible and arrange it 
                       on a flat dry surface. Allow the fabric to air dry.
