From lingerie and other items labeled “dry clean” to silk blouses and scarves, this special formula removes perspiration, body oils, and stains while cleaning and preserving fabrics. Ideal for silk, synthetics, spandex, polyester, nylon, rayon, acetate, and blends. Scented with herbal and citrus blend of rich amber, bergamot, lavender, and musk.
BEFORE YOU WASH
While silk is washable, it’s important to note that this fabric commonly bleeds and can potentially stain other items in the wash. Or if a single silk garment consists of two or more colors, bleeding, before washing silk clothing can occur. This is normal and will not result in color loss at the end of the wash process. To test for color bleeding, find an inconspicuous area on the item, such as a hem, and dip it in luke warm water. If dye releases into the water, you’ll know that bleeding would occur if washed. If you discover that an item bleeds during the test, simply take your silk to the dry cleaners. Or, if the garment is a solid color, wash it alone. It’s also important to note that some smooth finish may be textured after washing.
HAND WASH & RINSE
Silk can be hand washed - and often is the best process to ensure fabric integrity. Handwashing is actually always the best and safest method for washing silk.
Put It In Reverse: Prepare to wash by turning the item inside out. Wash with the same or like colors only.
Draw A Bath: Add two capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Wash to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water.
Go Under: Submerge your item and gently agitate the water with your hand to evenly distribute soap and water. Soak for up to 30 minutes.
Rinse Clear: Run cool water through items until rinse water is no longer soapy. Do not wring. Instead, gently press the water out of your item between your hands or against the sink.
Note: If there is color in the water, don’t worry! This is normal and it is simply the yarn releasing color. You will not notice any loss of color in the end.
