How To Care For Silk At Home
Most people think that delicates like silk and cashmere require dry cleaning but you can care for our amazing Fiorla silk loungewear at home.
Here are the general rules to follow:
How to Wash Silk at Home
Silk is a protein that's a lot like your hair, so treat the fabric like you would your locks—meaning no harsh detergents.
Fill your clean basin with cool or cold water and add a gentle detergent.
Place the garment in the water, stir it around with your hand then let it sit for just a few minutes. Next, drain the soapy mix and rinse.
Drying Your Silk
To remove excess water, place the wet garment on a white cotton towel. Fold the towel over and gently blot. Then, hang your silk to dry. Make sure you dry your garment somewhere away from the sunlight to prevent fading.
Removing the Wrinkles
For steaming, make sure your garment is dry before you begin. Be extra careful to not let the temperature get too hot. If the steamer drips and leaves a water stain, dunk the item in cool water and allow it to dry. The spot should disappear.
How to Store you Silk
We recommend using a padded hanger for your Fiorla to help keep your garment looking its best.
