Sometimes mustard or beer stains are left on the dirndl and you need to wash it quickly so that the dirndl colors are not lost. However, washing dirndls can be difficult because a dirndl is not an ordinary dress and common washing techniques can do more harm than good.

After all, you don’t want to ruin the colors of your dirndl dress, because they make it unmistakable. That’s why we look at how you can safely wash your dirndl without damaging the color and structure of the fabric.

Important: The following recommendations are helpful, but not every dirndl, every blouse and every apron corresponds to our washing instructions. We recommend that you follow the instructions on the garment label. If in doubt, ask us or contact the cleaning company!
How is a dirndl washed?
Dirndl cut in one color from high-quality and common dirndl fabrics can be washed in a washing machine for synthetics with a mild detergent. A bespoke dirndl may contain embellishments, non-standard materials or cuts where hand washing is preferable. Contact the tailor who made the dirndl. In this case, it is important to follow the recommendations for choosing the washing method and detergent.
It’s that easy
Can you iron a dirndl?
You can and should iron a dirndl. To do this, you should provide the iron with a non-stick coating or a special pad on the plate. For synthetic fabrics, choose a setting with two heat levels. Tulle, organza, beaded chiffon and satin dirndls are best muted. However, make sure that no drops of water get onto the dirndl, as it leaves stains when it dries and must be completely wet to remove it.
This way your costume will be wrinkle-free
How can you transport and store a dirndl?
To transport and store the dirndl you need a special bag, which is also available in traditional costume shops. These bags are made of water-repellent material, have practical shoulder straps, a long zip on the edge and can be extended downwards so that a dirndl can also fit in without any problems. So you can store and transport dirndl without worrying about the condition of the dirndl and without investing a lot of time and effort.
Everything to do with the dirndl
After the most exciting celebration of 2022, it is advisable to wash the dirndl and store it in a closed box for a long time. In this way, the dirndl is protected from sunlight and its colors do not fade. If it is not possible to wash the dress immediately, it should at least be dried and aired. We hope that our tips on how to wash and store dirndls after Oktoberfest 2022 have been helpful to you.
