light clean and relax textile
Slightly dirty and creased. The proper right side of the white band near the edges of the flag is detached from the surface
Vacuumed using a low-suction vacuum cleaner, with a protective net filter, and a soft sable brush.Creases were relaxed using Goretex humidification. A cotton sheet was dampened with distilled water and placed over a dry cotton sheet and the Goretex (polytetrafluoroethylene and polyester laminate), which was laid directly on the textile on its shiny side. The textile was covered with polythene to prevent loss of humidity. After 45 minutes of humidification, the textile was dried between two sheets of dry cotton cloth while Melinex weights were used to flatten out the creases.The white band was secured using 10% Klucel G (hydroxypropyl cellulose) in IMS.
