If you wish to retain the lustre and shine of silks, we recommend dry cleaning.
Washing and Drying
If you prefer to wash your silk bed linens at home, they will lose some of their luster.
Machine wash on a gentle cycle with warm temperatures and gentle cycles in a small load.
Wash silk bed linens on their own, do not put them in the washer with any other articles.
For best results, turn them inside out and launder them in a mesh bag.
Select a mild soap that is specifically formulated for silk.
Do not use any type of bleach, fabric softener, or enzyme detergent.
Launder whites, colors, and prints separately.
Machine dry on a delicate setting, using a cool temperature.
Silk dries very quickly, be careful not to over dry.
Keep your silk away from perfumes, hair spray, nail polish remover, and deodorant. Most of these are alcohol based which can dissolve silk.
Do not use caustic soaps, bleaches, Persil, or Woolite detergents.
Sleep in nightwear made with natural fabrics. Nightwear made with syntheticfibers is one of the biggest causes of pilling.
Do not launder with any articles that are heavy or coarse, they can scour the fabric.
Acne medications and whitening toothpastes contain chemicals that will bleach almost everything.
