How to care for silk.

Silk sleepwear can be a luxurious and comfortable addition to your wardrobe, but it requires proper care in order to maintain its softness, shine, and durability. Here are some tips on how to take care of your silk sleepwear, so that it lasts a lifetime:

Wash silk sleepwear by hand or on a gentle cycle in cold water, using a mild detergent specifically formulated for silk. Avoid using hot water, as it can cause the silk fibers to shrink or become damaged.

Do not wring or twist your silk sleepwear, as this can stretch and damage the fabric. Instead, gently press out excess water and roll the garment in a towel to remove excess moisture.

Avoid using bleach or harsh detergents, as they can strip the silk of its natural oils and weaken the fibers.

Silk sleepwear should be dried away from direct sunlight and heat. Lay the garment flat or hang it to dry in a well-ventilated area. Avoid drying silk sleepwear in a dryer, as the heat can cause the fabric to shrink or become damaged.

If you must iron your silk sleepwear, use the lowest heat setting and place a pressing cloth between the iron and the silk to protect the fabric.

Avoid wearing your silk sleepwear during physical activities, as perspiration and body oils can cause discoloration and staining.

If your silk sleepwear becomes wrinkled, use a steamer or hang the garment in the bathroom while you take a hot shower to allow the steam to naturally remove wrinkles.

By following these simple care instructions, you can help your silk sleepwear stay soft, shiny, and durable for years to come.
