Silk Fabric Characteristic

Silk is a protein fiber and usually burns readily, not necessarily with a steady flame, and smells like burning hair. The ash is easily crumbled. Silk samples are not as easily extinguished as cotton or linen.

How to Take Care your Silk Dress?

Keep in mind that silk is a very strong natural fiber. To keep that fiber strong, avoid subjecting it to harsh detergents and soaps that will break those fibers down and strip it of its natural properties. Woolite is a mild detergent that many people use to successfully clean their silk dress but I have found a few manufacturers who do no recommend it. A commonly recommended soap is Charlie's Liquid Laundry soap which can be purchased online. It is non-toxic and completely biodegradable soap.

When you first purchase silk dress, wash them by hand for the first few washings. Doing this helps to preserve the sheen of the silk and soften the silk fibers.

After hand washing for the first few times you can switch to machine washing if you want to, but always wash the dress on your machine's delicate cycle After hand washing for the first few times, you can switch to machine washing the dress, but always wash them on the delicate cycle and never use hot water. Experts recommend washing silk dress at 30 degree Centigrade (86 degrees Fahrenheit) which is water that is barely lukewarm.

If your machine has an option to allow an extra spin cycle to wring as much water out of your fabrics as possible, resist the urge to use it. Use the spin cycle sparing on silk dress because it is hard on their fibers. That is why it is important to use the delicate or hand washable cycle on the machine.

It is okay to use fabric softener if you would like to. My personal favorite is a lavender scented fabric softener.
Do not use bleach, even color safe bleach – ever, not even if you have stains.

Also resist scrubbing the fabric vigorously to remove a stain.

Let the dress hand dry, if possible, but keep them out of direct sunlight and away from heating vents because that is just like putting them in a hot dryer. It is especially important to keep dark colored silk dress out of the sunlight because it will visibly fade them in a very short amount of time. But, because finding a safe place to air dry large silk dress, such as king size dress, can be difficult, some people have had good luck drying their dress using the lowest temperature setting on their dryer, the one that is just barely higher than "air dry."

My favorite place to dry silk dress is outside on a clothesline that is protected from the sun, but because I live in a cold climate it is not feasible to hang out my dress year around so I utilize my dryer for several months a year.

If you think the dress need ironing, although I admit I have never ironed silk dress, you can use a cool iron on them while they are still slightly damp, making sure to iron on the reverse side (the non-shiny side). But I will tell you I have never found it necessary to iron silk dress. If they are gently washed and dried (translation: not twisted and wrung and beat up), they don't need to be ironed.

One other note about washing silk dress – do not put anything else in the washer with them. Wash them separately from your other laundry.

Take Care of Yourself To Help Prolong the Life of Your Silk dress

Silk, while durable, can unwittingly be damaged by you. If the heels of your feet get as dry and rough as sandpaper, it is like rubbing your dress with sandpaper every time you get into bed. The same goes for sharp broken fingernails or toenails. They can pull the threads in your dress, breaking them. So taking care of your skin and your nails is not only beneficial to you but also beneficial to your skin!

Some Shrinking of Fabric is Normal

It is normal for most silk dress to shrink a little during the first few washings, usually about three to four percent. It is a normal occurrence and should not make you feel like you are doing something wrong. The manufacturers take shrinkage into consideration when they make the dress so they should still fit your bed just fine after those first few washings.

As a recap, gentle washing and gentle drying is what your silk dress want to do to help them last a long time.
