Knowing how to clean your silk skirts will make sure the material stays looking good as new for years. We would always recommend checking the care label for instructions as some silk is dry clean only, and others are washable. Some silk products are strictly dry clean only, while others can be hand washed or machine washed on a gentle, cold-water cycle. If you do decide to hand wash silk, use cool or lukewarm water, and add a small amount of detergent designed for delicate fabrics. Rinse away any soap, and remove any excess water without wringing or twisting. Leave to soak for no more than five minutes, and rinse well. It is best to avoid tumble drying silk, and to air dry away from direct sunlight instead. If you must wash in the machine, place the silk item in a mesh laundry bag and select a delicate cycle. If the care label on your silk item says that it can be ironed, then use a low iron setting and ideally iron while it is still slightly damp.
