- Do not put your silk in the washing machine (Dry Clean & Hand-wash Only).
- To hand-wash, place your silk in cold water with a mild Silk-friendly detergent.
- Leave to soak (No more than 5 minutes).
- Swish silk slowly and gently (Do not squeeze, twist or rub your Silk).
- Rinse with fresh cold water.
- To help keep your silk hydrated, use a fabric conditioner in the final rinse (No more than 5 minutes).
- Rinse well in cold water.
- To remove excess moisture ball your silk together (wringing your silk will damage its fibres), lay it flat and roll it in a towel to absorb any lingering moisture.
- Lay flat to dry (Never put your silk in a dryer or expose to direct sunlight).
- Set the iron to low heat or silk setting.
- Iron your silk only once its dry and be sure to put a cloth between your silk and the iron.
- Do not spray or wet your silk while ironing, you may get water-stains.
To avoid ironing, store your silk by hanging it in a cool dry place - silk creases, so do not fold or leave it bunched up for long. If storing your silk for a long period of time, make sure it’s clean and stored in a breathable fabric.
Store your silk away from the sun to avoid fading of colours and weakening of fibre. Silk is a protein, this means it can attract moths, so if you add a natural moth repellent into the bag or storage your silk will be sure to thank you.
