Here is a video and a step by step guide to washing and caring for your silk products the right way. It is not as hard as you think and no dry cleaners involved!
Silk is a luxurious and delicate fabric that demands special care to maintain its gorgeous shine and softness. At Damn Gina, we are the self proclaimed silk experts. Whether it's a silk pillowcase, hair wrap, or any other silk product, we've got you covered.
Washing silk for the first time can appear intimidating, but no need to worry! Here's a four-step guide to help you clean your silk properly and make it last a lifetime.
Step 1: Prepare the Right Washing Solution
Use a mild or silk-specific detergent that's free from harsh chemicals, fabric softener, or bleach. Treat your silk with kid gloves.
Step 2: Get Your Silk Ready
For best results we recommend washing the silk inside out. Don't forget to untangle those drawstring knots of your hair wrap.
Step 3: Hand Wash Your Silk
We recommend that you wash your silk items by hand. Fill a sink with cold water and detergent, gently agitate the water to create bubbles, and place your product in the water. Allow it to soak for a few minutes before rinsing with cool water.
Step 4: Dry Your Silk
Do not twist or wring your silk, but roll it up in a towel to get rid of the excess water. Air dry it flat or hang it up on a padded hanger, away from sunlight or heat.
Voila! You've successfully learned how to clean silk like a pro. Indulge in your sumptuous silk knowing that proper care will preserve its softness and luster for years to come.
