Shopping for high quality seamless bedding checking the momme weight

Although seamless silk bedding does not represent the high quality, but there still some real good ones with seamless. How to pick them out! First, check the momme weight!

Look for a momme weight between 16 and 19, although you can have a momme weight (mm) as low as 12 and still be purchase a quality product. The higher the momme number the heavier that piece of fabric is and the more silk that was used in the construction of that piece of fabric. Any silk bedding sheets, whether it is made from mulberry silk or a more affordable wild silk, that has a momme weight of under 12 is not going to be durable and last a long time. You will save money initially but over the long term purchasing low quality sheets will cost you more than if you would have purchased a high quality set of sheets right away. This is because you will need to continue to replace those lower quality sheets at a far faster rate than high quality silk sheets which will last a long time if cared for properly and according to manufacturer’s instructions.

As it is said, momme weight is the common measurement for all silk!

Removing Other Stains From Your Silk Sheets

We have listed some of the common stains happen on your silk linen, and what if others? Deal with perspiration; you could use diluted ammonia (equal part of ammonia and water). Rinse well. And others like Oily or Greasy Stains try some liquid dishwashing soap letting it sit for few minutes. Rinse with water. There are still many for both of us to find out the best solution for it.

But not all silk is created alike. There are many different kinds which mean that a method that removes a stain on one type of silk may not work on another type of silk. Always test the method on an inconspicuous section of the sheets first, like on a corner of the fitted sheet that does not show when it is on the bed. All in all, keep your great silk duvets clean and there won’t be so much trouble for you!

Removing Lipstick and Makeup from your silk sheets

Cosmetics are another common stain happened, a short rest on your silk linen, and when you turn over in bed, your lipstick may easily kiss your silk pillowcase. How to wash them?

Try the laundry soap you use to regularly clean the sheets but in a little more concentrated form. If that does not work, try ammonia but be careful if the sheets are a dark color. Test in an inconspicuous place first and use as little as ammonia as possible. Start with 1 part ammonia to 3 parts water. If that doesn’t work increase the strength of the ammonia but never use anything stronger than 1 part ammonia to 1 part water.

After all, care for not “kiss” your silk bedding that would be the best solution.

Removing Coffee and Tea from your silk sheets
