How to Clean Cupro

When cupro becomes dirty, it can be laundered in a washing machine. The rayon-like fabric is commonly used to make higher-end blouses, household linens, curtains and as a liner in clothing, such as a jacket lining. When cupro is used as a lining, always read and follow the manufacturer's cleaning instructions. Although it is safe for cupro to be washed in a washing machine, it may not be safe for the outer fabric.

Step 1

Set your washing machine to a regular cleaning cycle. Use cold water for dark colored cupro fabric to prevent fabric. Warm water can be used on light colors.

Step 2

Add a bleach-free and chlorine-free laundry detergent to the washing machine.

Step 3

Place the cupro fabric into the laundry machine and begin the cleaning cycle. Remove from the washing machine when the cleaning cycle is completed.

Step 4

Place the fabric in the dryer. Run through a regular heat, timed-dry or cotton drying cycle until the fabric is dry. Alternatively, hang it up to dry. If needed, a warm iron can be used to eliminate wrinkles.
