Can you dry clean a sari?

Silk Sarees:
Never hand-wash or machine-wash a silk saree. In case the saree gets stained, immediately wipe the stain off with cold water. It is advisable to only dry-clean silk sarees. Never hang a silk saree to dry in direct sunlight as doing so will cause the colour to fade.
