A silk blouse is an elegant and delicate staple piece that requires some special care to maintain its beauty and longevity.
Never machine-wash or tumble dry your silk scarves as silk is very sensitive to heat.Love pieces made from silk such as our silk shirt or our silk scarves should only be hand-washed in a basin or sink by using lukewarm water and a small amount of mild detergent designed for delicate fabrics such as silk. Avoid harsh chemicals such as bleach or fabric softeners. Gently agitate the water to create suds. Submerge your silk blouse in the soapy water and swish it around gently for a few minutes. Rinse the shirt thoroughly with cool, clean water until all soap is removed. NEVER wring or twist the fabric.If you encounter a stain, blot it gently with a clean, white cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing vigorously, as it may damage the silk fibers. Consider professional cleaning for stubborn stains.After washing, gently press the excess water out of the blouse by rolling it in a clean towel. Never wring or twist the fabric.
Lay your silk blouse flat on a clean, dry towel or drying rack to air dry. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can cause colors to fade.
Use a cool iron (silk setting) on the reverse side of the fabric to remove wrinkles or place a clean, tea towel between the iron and the silk blouse to prevent direct contact. Do not use a steamer for silk products as silk doesn’t like humidity.
Store your silk blouse in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Either hang it on a wooden hanger or fold it to avoid stretching. Allow perfumes and deodorants to dry completely before wearing your silk blouse to prevent staining or discoloration. Be mindful when wearing your silk shirt. Avoid excessive rubbing against rough surfaces and jewelry that may snag the fabric. By following these care instructions, you can enjoy the elegance and comfort of your silk blouse for many seasons while preserving its luxurious qualities. Proper care is key to maintaining its beauty and extending its lifespan.
