Caring for your luxury silk is not as difficult as you think. All of Nyteez silk products can be machine washed, hand washed or dry cleaned.
Silk is a protein fiber, like hair and releases dirt quickly, so a quick swish in clean luke warm water and a cap full of delicate care laundry soapor a small amount of shampoo should be sufficient for most cleaning.
I have a plastic 12 quart dishpan that I just use for hand washing clothing. This ensures I always have a clean pan to hand wash delicates in.
Silk is a very strong natural fiber when dry but water makes the fibers more fragile, so be gentle with it when it is wet. Do not scrub or wring. Swish around and agitate the garment by hand for a couple of minutes. Do not soak longer than 5 minutes.
The dye on dark silks will bleed, this is normal, so only wash like colors together. To help retain the silks vibrant color and sheen, add 1/4 cup of white vinegar per 2 gallons of your washing water.
If you have hard water the minerals can leave a residue that makes the silk seem dry, kind of like your hair. Adding a cap full of hair conditioner or fabric softenerto the wash water will avoid this and actually provide a deeper cleaning.
Rinse in cold water.
Hand washing and Machine washing silk will make it softer and may give it a sand washed appearance over time. I actually like this effect, but to retain the vibrant color and sheen take it to a dry cleaners.
Place in mesh laundry bag and wash with like colors, on the Hand Wash or Delicate cycle using delicate care laundry soap.
Squeeze, do not wring, out the water or lay flat on a clean towel and roll up the garment in the towel to get excess water out.
Hang in shower or shady place to dry. Direct sun can fade, yellow and degrade silk.
Nyteez Silk Burnout garments and knits shouldn’t need to be ironed, wrinkles usually hang out in a few hours. If not, then see below.
To iron, turn inside out. If you just washed the garment wait until it is almost dry and iron on low or the silk setting. For a dry garment, just iron on low. Do not spray with water, this may create spotting.
Long term exposure to perfume spray or deodorant can damage and yellow silk fabric. Be sure to wash garment before storing.
