How to Care for Christmas Tree Skirts

I am not emotionally attached to our Christmas tree skirt.  I can’t tell you where or when I purchased it; likely because I picked it up right after Christmas when it was on clearance.  But for some folks, their Christmas Tree skirt is a valuable, sentimental treasure perhaps because it is a family heirloom, a special gift, or an unusually expensive purchase.  Whatever the reason, Christmas tree skirts, even if they were purchased on clearance, should be handled with care.

Unfortunately, there are no step-by-step instructions when it comes to caring for Christmas tree skirts.  Because they are typically embellished with beads, sequins, lace, felt, quilted, multicolored prints, and decorative trims, they cannot be safely laundered or dry cleaned.  Eventually they will get dirty, especially if you have a live tree or perhaps a critter that likes to lay underneath your tree.  So

here are a few things you can do at home to keep your Christmas tree skirts looking festive:
  • Always follow the directions on the care label.
  • If you spill water on your tree skirt, carefully blot the area dry with a clean, white cloth or paper towel.
  • If you need to remove a stain or spill, test an inconspicuous area before attempting to remove the actual stain to see if there is any color bleeding or color loss.
  • Local stain removal treatments may be the only safe way to clean tree skirts, and it is possible that stains may not be able to be removed without damaging the skirt.
If you have questions or need help with your Christmas tree skirt, bring it by one of our locations to see if our stain removal experts can help.
