Care for your silk product: If you have recently purchased a silk product, there are some simple care techniques to help your silk stay beautiful and vibrant. Never fold your silk. This can result in creases that are extremely difficult to remove. Hang your scarf over a hangar, or roll it around something like a t-shirt for storage. If you silk becomes dirty, gently hand wash it in cool water with mild detergent. You may notice a small amount of color comes out of the silk. This is normal and nothing to be worried about. Lay your silk flat on a towel to dry. It is best to iron your silk when it is still slightly damp. Iron on a silk setting (low iron setting).
