Silk Care Tips

Silk, a natural protein fiber, is an eco-friendly fabric, but it requires careful maintenance to last longer and radiate its unique charm. So, do you know how to wash and care for silk properly?

 

Hand Washing:

Silk is best washed by hand. Soak the garment in cold water for 5 to 10 minutes, then add silk-specific detergent, gently rub and knead, and rinse thoroughly in clear water. Avoid washing with water above 30 degrees and do not soak it after using detergent.

Air Drying:

After washing, lay the silk garment flat in a cool, shaded area to dry. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as UV rays can cause silk fabric to yellow, fade, and age. Avoid using a dryer.

Ironing:

Iron silk clothing on the reverse side. When ironing, let the garment air-dry to about 70%, then evenly mist it with water. Wait 3 to 5 minutes before ironing, and keep the ironing temperature below 150°C. Do not directly touch the silk surface with the iron to avoid a glossy appearance.

Storage:

Store the garment after ironing to prevent mold and moth damage. When storing daily, make sure to place it in a dark area. Silk clothing has strong moisture absorption, so it's best to hang it on a hanger and keep it ventilated when not in use.

Wearing:

Avoid rubbing silk clothing against rough objects to prevent snags. Do not use perfume, as chemicals can damage silk, causing the fabric to yellow.
