Silk Care Guide
Keeping Silk Soft5 ways to care for your special silk pieces...
1 Check the label
First things first: check to see if your garment can be washed by hand or if it should be dry cleaned. If it’s the latter, seek out a dry cleaner that uses organic or green methods for the best result.2 Hand wash in lukewarm water
Silk is as delicate as your hair, so it deserves the same careful attention. Soak the garment in a clean bowl/sink using either a specially formulated silk shampoo or a gentle oil-free soap – a few minutes is more than enough. Then, dab dry or roll it in a towel (never wring or twist).3 Stains
It may be tempting to spot treat stains, but this could cause the colour to fade. Instead, hand wash as normal or pay a visit your dry cleaner.4 Wrinkles
Most creases will fall out if you hang the garment in a hot, steamy bathroom for an hour or two. But for more stubborn wrinkles, turn inside out and iron on a cool setting.5 Storage
Always hang silk pieces in your wardrobe – don’t let them ball up in a drawer. For extra protection, invest in breathable (not plastic) clothing bags to keep them in.Back to all care guides
