Silk Care

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.

Hand Washing

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 soap or 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 softener to 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.

Machine Washing

Place in mesh laundry bag and wash with like colors, on the Hand Wash or Delicate cycle using delicate care laundry soap.

Drying

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.

Ironing

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.

For Nyteez silk satin charmeuse garments, steaming is best.

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.

Daily Care

Long term exposure to perfume spray or deodorant can damage and yellow silk fabric.  Be sure to wash garment before storing.

Silk Robe Giveaway

I didn’t like any of the Giveaway widgets I found.  One of them required you to login w/ Facebook, one was too complicated, it worked off a points system (3 points for posting about giveaway on Twitter, 2 points for posting comments, etc), the formats were too big for sidebar placement and there was no easy way to add an image of the giveaway prize to the widget.  I could go into full geek mode and re-write the widget to re-size and include an image, but I have enough on my plate right now with trying to dig my Blog out from the depths of the internet abyss.

So, I decided to make it real simple. This post is for the Giveaway of a Silk Robe.  These robes are my own design with a Nyteez

Gifts for Her – Silk Robes

Pink Silk Robe Image

Nyteez Silk / Rayon Flutter Sleeve Robe

 

 

So, you don’t know what to get your new girlfriend for Christmas.  You want to get her something sexy, but not too wild.  Robes are perfect!  Robes can be sexy, romantic and comfortable.  You don’t know what size?  Robes are pretty easy as far as sizing.  Some are one size fits most (how easy is that?) others are small, medium, large, etc.  Most robes are sized generously and fit a wide range of sizes.

The pink silk robe pictured is semi sheer, soft, whisper light and sexy.  I like this one because of the short sleeves.  Sometimes I wash dishes or do some other chore in my robe and long sleeved robes get in the way.  This short sleeved robe is perfect for warm weather.  It’s light and packs well so it is great for travel too.

A robe a pretty safe gift for a man who isn’t quite sure what to get.

The silk and lace robes by Mary Green are very elegant and prized by many celebrities.  My favorite is the stretch silk satin robe.

This robe is made of a fabric invented by Mary Green.

It is silk charmeuse blended w/ 5% spandex so there is a bit of stretch to it that I think makes it more comfortable.  I wish she made PJ’s out of it.

For the man who is unsure on what gift to get his girlfriend, buy her a silk robe! She’ll love it.
