How to Care for your Silk Scarf

Don’t let silk scare you, because it’s easy to clean. A silk scarf lends itself best to hand washing to preserve the integrity of the silk – but you can also machine wash it on gentle cycle.

Hand Washing

The best approach is to hand wash silk in 30 degrees C (86F). Fill your sink with lukewarm water and add a little gentle pH neutral liquid detergent. Gently agitate with your hand. Remember that silk is a protein, quite like your hair, so no harsh detergents please. Absolutely no bleach, as this can damage the fibres! Avoid using fabric softener, as it can leave a film on the surface of the silk.

Place the silk pillowcase in the water, agitate it a little and gently move it from side to side to remove dirt. Then let it sit for just a few minutes. Silk releases dirt quickly. Don’t let it soak for a long period because the silk becomes soggy. Rinse it well in fresh water to remove all detergent.

Towel dry your silk scarf.  Never wring out your silk scarf (it can damage the silk). To remove the excess water when washing silk, place your silk scarf on a white towel. Roll up the towel. Gently press on the rolled-up towel to absorb excess moisture. Hang it to air dry or lay it flat. You can dry it on a rail until partially damp. Protect it from direct sunlight.

Iron it on the reverse side at a low/medium heat when it is still partially damp.

Machine Washing

Place your silk scarf inside a pillowcase (to protect it) and into the machine drum. Use a mild detergent and wash at no more than 30 degrees on Gentle cycle.

Never toss silk in the dryer as the heat can damage or shrink the silk. Keep silk out of direct sunlight
