Silk is a beautiful natural fabric that will give you so many benefits, but it does need to be cared for slightly differently than cotton.
Mix ¼ cup of White Distilled Vinegar with cool water and pre soak the item for 15 minutes. This should help keep the shine and alleviate any blemishes on the silk.
HAND WASH & RINSE
Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing silk.
Put It In Reverse: Prepare to wash by turning the item inside out. Wash with the same or like colors only.
Draw A Bath: Add a squirt of a Silk Detergent to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water.
Go Under: Submerge your item and gently agitate the water with your hand to evenly distribute soap and water. Soak for up to 30 minutes.
Rinse Clear: Run cool water through items until rinse water is no longer soapy. Do not wring. Instead, gently press the water out of your item between your hands or against the sink.
DRY & FINISH
No-Rush Drying: Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry. If hanging to dry, be sure to position the item properly on the hanger to prevent stretching.
Wrinkle-Free: Steam to remove wrinkles and rejuvenate the natural luster after washing. This will achieve the perfect finish! Don’t have a steamer handy? Use an iron set to the “steam” setting, hovering over the item – do not make contact.
