How to wash silk pajamas
Silk pajamas may feel sumptuous against the skin, but they are pajamas all the time. All garments will need to be washed eventually. This guide will explain how you can wash silk pajamas without sacrificing the integrity of the fabric.
HAND WASH & RINSE
Handwashing is the gentlest way to clean and preserve the integrity of silk!
Put It In Reverse: Prepare to wash by turning the item inside out. Wash with the same or like colors only.
Draw A Bath: Add two capfuls or a squirt of delicate wash to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water.
Go Under: Submerge your item and gently agitate the water with your hand to evenly distribute soap and water. Soak for up to 30 minutes.
Rinse Clear: Run cool water through items until rinse water is no longer soapy. Do not wring. Instead, gently press the water out of your item between your hands or against the sink.
Note: If there is color in the water, don’t worry! This is normal and it is simply the yarn releasing dye. You will not notice any loss of color in the fabric when you are finished.
When washing in the machine, we recommend removing silks promptly after the cycle is complete to reduce wrinkles.
Bag It: Turn item inside out and place it in a mesh bag to protect it in the machine.
Select Your Wash Cycle: Select the delicate cycle on your washing machine and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is on low. Add delicate wash considering the machine type and load size.
DRY & FINISH
No-Rush Drying: Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry. If hanging to dry, be sure to position the item properly on the hanger to prevent stretching.
Stay Fresh: To freshen between washes, spritz with delicate spray. This versatile formula has antibacterial properties that add scent while removing odor.
