Hand Wash:
Fill a basin with lukewarm water. Mix in a small amount of gentle detergent. Submerge the pillowcase gently, swirling it around. Avoid wringing or twisting as it can damage the silk fibers. Instead, press it softly to clean. Rinse with cool water until all detergent is gone.

Drying:
Lay a white towel flat and place the pillowcase on it. Roll the towel up with the pillowcase inside, pressing gently to extract excess water. Unroll, reshape the pillowcase, and lay it flat in a shaded area. Avoid direct sunlight as it can fade the silk.

Ironing:
Iron while the pillowcase is slightly damp. Use the lowest heat setting and always iron on the inside. A protective cloth between the iron and silk is advisable.

How Often Should You Wash?

For hygienic reasons and to ensure the longevity of the silk's quality, it's advisable to wash your pillowcase every 1-2 weeks. Regular washing helps remove accumulated oils, skin cells, and product residues. However, while maintaining cleanliness is essential, remember not to over-wash; silk naturally resists dirt and odors. Additionally, to maximize the benefits and maintain the luxurious feel, consider refreshing your collection with a new pillowcase every three months.

Q2. Considering the wear and tear of daily use, how often should one think about replacing their silk pillowcases?
A: With proper care, silk pillowcases can last for years. However, for optimal benefits, consider replacing them every three months, especially if you notice thinning or loss of sheen.

Q3. When choosing a detergent for silk pillowcases, what characteristics or ingredients should be avoided?
A: Choose gentle detergents designed for delicate fabrics or silk. Avoid detergents with enzymes, bleach, or brighteners as these can weaken and dull the silk over time.
