Firstly, I have to say well done for reading this before you attempted to wash a silk piece at home. Unfortunately for me, the first time I attempted to wash a silk piece of my own, it ended up in utter disaster, and I am talking a veerryyy expensive piece ended up with holes in it from using a really strong product. I don't want that experience for you.
Washing a luxury fabric can be a little scary and give you a bit ( or a lot) of anxiety thinking about the process. The good thing is that we are starting to see more and more silk products come in the market that are machine washable silk (finally).
So let's talk about how to wash silk correctly.
If you have a silk product that can be washed in a machine, please use a delicates washbag also known as a lingerie washbag. Once it is out of the machine, use a towel to soak up any excess water then lay flat to dry (remember not to put in direct sunlight)
If you are taking the hand wash option, please use cold water, fill the basin (make sure it is clean) and submerge the silk into the water. Add some detergent that is suitable for silk, then leave for a few minutes.
Once a few minutes has passed, move the silk garment around, to break up any dirt in the garment. Then rinse in cold water to remove the dirt and soap away.
Absorb any excess water in a towel, please be sure to be gentle and not rub.
Hang or lay flat on a clothes rack (out of direct sunlight)
