Hand Wash


#1. DO NOT use harsh detergents that contain bleach or brighteners.

#2. Use cold to luke warm water and mild soap.

#3. Add a few drops of hair conditioner to the final rinse for a silky feel.

Machine Wash

#1. Dry cleaning or washing by hand are the best methods for cleaning silk. With that said, these are not the only ways to clean silk. You can can also wash silk by machine.

#2. Turn inside out and place silk in a mesh washing bag to avoid scratching or pulling of the garment.

#3. Again, do not use harsh detergents

#4. Use a gentle cycle setting.


#1. To dry, wrap silk in a dry towel then lay flat. NEVER wring dry or expose silk to direct sunlight for long periods of time.

#2. To iron, always iron on backside only and DO NOT use a high setting.
