How to Wash Silk at Home

If you take good care of your silk products, they can maintain its durability & last many years. 

It is natural for silk’s sheen to slightly diminish after washing.

To restore its shine and sheen, occasionally, you might want to try to rinse the silk product using white vinegar after washing. Here's how 👇

Silk is a delicate fabric and the more you look after it, the more it will look after you (your skin and hair too).
 

In general, these are the Do and Don't when it comes to washing your silk pillowcase and silk eye mask, so that they stay the way you love them.❤️

 

Do

  • Hand wash using cold water ( < 40 Degree Celcius)
  • Use pH neutral detergent or hair shampoo
  • Steam on low heat
  • Iron with a layer of cloth on top, to protect the silk fabric
  • Line dry in shade

 

 

Don't

  • Don't machine wash
  • Don't bleach
  • Don't tumble dry
  • Don't use detergent/product with trichloroethylene
  • Don't use fabric softener (use white vinegar instead)
  • Don't use washing powder or soap

 

Do note that baby friendly natural detergent (made of natural ingredients) IS NOT THE SAME AS pH neutral detergent we are recommending.

Even though some detergent are made for baby and it is baby friendly. These type of biological and bacterial detergents might contain enzymes that regrettably degrade the structure of both wool and silk fibres so these detergents should be avoided.
