“Silk bedding is one thing everyone should have at least one set of. Silk has been around for centuries, and was once only used by royalty and the richest people in an area. These days, however, it’s much more affordable and several people love sleeping on this type of fabric. The thought of silk sheets still brings about the thought of sophistication and magnificence.”
Many of our customers have asked us on how to wash their silk pillowcase and silk sheets. Here we are going to give you a run down on how to take care of your silk beddings. In general, any silk fabric is machine washable, especially if they are made with high quality heavy silk. Silk is a natural fabric and with proper care, it can last a long time.
Let’s start with how to wash your silk pillowcase
I often hand wash my silk pillowcase because it is small and easy to dry. Using gentle silk friendly detergent such as Le Blanc Silk and Lingerie Wash or Woolite will help remove residue and stain. But if you don’t have any silk friendly detergents, you can also use your hair shampoo. The reason you can use your hair shampoo is because silk is a natural fiber with natural protein and amino acids, similar to our hair. Do not twist the fabric and let it drip dry. It will dry quickly because it is a very breathable fabric.,,
