(Recommend machine wash at 30°C/86°F)

Hang item or lay flat to dry. Hang dry if possible.
Avoid direct sunlight exposure.

STEP 1

Before wash

Just like bathing a baby you‘ll need gentle soap, a bowl and a towel. Fill the bowl with warm water (30℃) and add silk lotion. Remember to be gentle with your babies.

STEP 2

Put your silk into the water

Immerse the garment completely in the water basin. Gently pulse the water with your hands, moving it around so soapy water penetrates through the fibers. If desired, soak the item for up to three or four minutes.

STEP 3 

Air dry   

Use a strong plastic or wood hanger to air dry your garment. Never use a wire hanger, or you’ll risk leaving an imprint on the fabric. Fasten any and all buttons, zippers, or ties to help ensure the garment holds its shape and dries without wrinkling.

STEP 4

Remove wrinkles 

Avoid using an iron to remove wrinkles from silk fibers. Hanging a silk garment overnight should remove most wrinkles. If absolutely necessary, consider using an iron on its silk or lowest possible setting to remove persistent wrinkles.

Silk is a natural fiber and washing in a solution too acidic or alkaline can cause the silk becomes harden in a single wash. If you can't find a detergent that specifies pH level then just go for one that specifies silk. Avoid bleach products when washing.

Another important factor is water temperature. Even slightly above 30°C or 85℉ can change silk dramatically. Wash in cold will be the safest method if your machine doesn't specify exact heat settings.

If you wish to maximize the life of your silk, hand washing is the ultimate method. The gentler you wash your silk, the longer it will keep its sheen. The same goes for drying your pillowcase, do not place in tumble dryer. Go through the above steps and clean your silk pillowcases with enough care, you’ll find that silk pillowcases can also last for many years.
