Tips for Washing Silk Sheets

Pure silk sheetSilk sheets keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter; silk also wicks perspiration away from the body which is why it helps keep you cool and leads to its reputation as a breathable fabric. Today, we will introduce how to wash your silk.

Hand wash with shampoo (but don’t use shampoo containing silicone) to save time. We recommend hand washing silk bed sheets, however, you do wish to machine wash silk, please use Delicate Cycle and mild detergent.

While silk is a very resilient fiber, ongoing exposure to full sun will in time, do damage (just like it does to your skin). Machine dries your sheets on the lowest temperature setting and takes them out before they are fully dry.

Always wash silk separately from your other laundry items. Remember to keep the water cool temperature.

Pure silk sheet is a delicate fabric and should be handled with care. However, it is fairly easy to clean. It has a naturally tendency to release dirt quickly and does not always require dry cleaning to keep its quality.
