Washing instructions for silk -
1. Place the garment in cold water with a gentle detergent, as silk is like hair, a gentle shampoo will also do the trick.
2. Give it a stir, and let it sit for just a few minutes. Silk releases dirt quickly, so the process doesn't take long.
3. Next, drain the soapy mix and rinse with cool, running water.
4. Pat off excess water with a towel and allow to dry before putting away.
