As you know you can wear a silk scarf on just any occasion and enhance your grace among the people. Of course, if you wear your favorite scarf almost everyday, you need to know how to care for these wonderful and important elements of your wardrobe.
Fortunately, there are many of easy tricks that make cleaning so much easier. First, such household item like ordinary table salt should be added to the water to prevent the colors from bleeding. It is well known fact in chemistry that salt prevents a dye from fading or running.
Another home item like your kitchen white vinegar will help to brighten the silk fabric and should be added during the final rising. The regular bleach should not be used because it is too harsh for silk fabric.
Also, if you have hard to clean stains, you should probably use a soft soap (or baby shampoo) which you use to wash you body or maybe a little color cloth detergent to get rid of very hard stains. But most importantly don’t rub hard the material because this will cause worn spots to form. Instead allow the soap water to seep thought and then rinse the silk fabric.
After you washed it, don’t wring it or hand it for drying. It is the best, if you lay it on a clean dry cotton towel and roll the towel with it to make a scarf get rid of the water. Then let it air-dry.
While ironing your silk garment, keep the steam iron in the lowest scale. If you are not sure about your iron device, you can use a cotton cloth or towel and put your scarf underneath to prevent it from direct heat. It is also good to iron it on the wrong side.
As long as you will follow these simple instructions, you can enjoy these unique and precious silk garments which will last for many, many years!
