Preserve the beauty of your silk by storing it flat and untied.
Avoid contact with rain, water and other chemicals, and entrust it to a professional dry cleaner when needed.
Cool iron the backside only and do NOT iron the hemming. (To avoid ironing, the best solution for your silk is to store it by hanging it in a cool dry place. Silk creases so it’s best not to fold or leave it bunched up for long. If you’re storing your silk for a long period of time then make sure it’s clean and stored in a breathable fabric bag (avoid plastic ones because they lock in moisture)
Be environmentally conscious...hand wash your silks
Do not use regular bath or laundry soap for washing silk because the alkalines will damage the fabric. Use a mild detergent like a wool wash and cool water to hand wash. Do not clean scarves in a washer, even on the gentle cycle, because excessive agitation may damage the fibers.
Fill a sink with cool water and add the detergent, swishing it through the water to evenly distribute the detergent. Add the scarf and gently squeeze the suds around the scarf. Even during hand washing, avoid excessive rubbing because it can break the fibers and dull the finish. Rinse carefully in water of the same cool temperature, then remove excess moisture by patting the scarf between dry towels. Do not wring or wrinkle the silk any more than necessary.
If you can see stains like makeup or oil on the scarf, do some pretreating of those areas before hand washing. Apply a dab of the mild detergent directly to the stained spot. Work it into the fabric with your fingers.
After you have removed as much moisture as possible with the towels, the silk should be air dried. Never place silk in an automatic dryer even on low heat. Do not hang silks in the sun which can cause fading or place them near any source of heat, but do dry them as quickly as possible. Rapid drying in front of an electric fan prevents the formation of watermarks and helps retain the glossy finish.
Silk should be damp when pressed. Use a warm-never hot-iron and press on the wrong side using a piece of clean white cloth between the silk and the iron.
