How to Wash Silk in 5 Simple Steps
If you’ve washed your garment either by hand or machine washing, one of the most important factors in washing silk involves proper drying.
First, remove excess moisture by laying your garment on a clean towel. Next, gently roll the garment and the towel together, and then press to squeeze out the water. Repeat this step three to four times (the fabric should no longer be dripping), and then lay your garment flat to air-dry, either on a separate towel or on a flat drying rack. If possible, avoid hanging to air-dry, as this can affect the shape of the garment.
Now that you know how to wash silk, it’s time to refresh your wardrobe with a handful of must-have silk accessories.
