- Hand wash with cool water and gentle detergent; soak the item in a mixture of cold water and mild detergent for 3-5 minutes .Work the item through your hands gently
- Rinse thoroughly under cool water. Let the water run through the fabric until the water runs clear; free of suds. Avoid wringing or twisting the material as you rinse it, as this will cause wear and tear on the fabric.
- Air dry with a hanger and avoid direct sun exposure; Please never place delicate silk items in a dryer, because the dryer could shrink them, cause piling, and shorten its lifetime
- Do not use a clothespin to hang; Clothespin may leave permanent marks on the fabric
- Low heat iron: Turn your silk pillowcase inside-out, place a towel over it and iron on the lowest heat setting;
- Storage: We recommend storing in a breathable cotton hanging storage bag to protect silk pillowcase from bugs;
Silk Care InstructionsWash:
You can clean your silk in 3 ways:
Option 1: Dry-clean. Ask your dry cleaner to pay careful attention to any buttons.
Option 2: Hand-wash in cold water with a gentle fabric soap and softener. Soak for up to 30 mins then rinse off soap with cold water. Handle gently and do not rub, spot-treat or wring. Press against sink to remove excess water before drying.
Option 3: Machine-wash: Place into a mesh bag and wash with "delicates" or "hand-wash" setting on the shortest time setting with no/low spin. Use cold water with a gentle fabric soap and softener. Do not use regular detergent. Do not use medium or high temperature. All silk styles can be machine-washed.
Choose whichever method you're most comfortable with.
Helpful washing tips:
Do not spot treat garments. Rubbing in one spot can cause lightening in that area. To remove stains, wash the entire garment.
Do not wring or rub the garment.
Use a gentle fabric soap suitable for silk and delicates, not regular detergent.
Add a small amount of fabric softener during washing.
Air-dry only. DO NOT TUMBLE DRY IN A DRYER.
After washing, remove excess water by gently rolling up the garment in a towel or pressing between two towels. Lay flat to air-dry or hang dry on a hanger. Re-shape while wet. Do not wring the garment. Steam after drying.
Use a garment steamer to remove any wrinkles.
If you don't have a steamer, use an iron on the lowest setting, ironing the garment inside-out with gentle steam on, and a thin cloth or towel placed over the silk.
Fold and store in a dry, air-tight bag to avoid moisture, stretch, and moth damage. With good care, you can enjoy your cashmere garment for many years to come.
