How do I care for my Silkbody?
EASY CARE WASHING GUIDELINES
- Turn your Silkbody inside out and wash gently by hand or machine
- Cool to warm temperatures are best. Do not overheat with a hot-water wash or hot iron.
- Use a mild detergent, such as a wool wash. We recommend the Ecostore wool wash. There’s no need for harsh chemicals such as strong washing powders or bleach. These contain brighteners and whiteners that can damage the silk fibre.
- Rinse well. Squeeze or gentle spin excess water. Do not wring.
- Line dry or hang inside out of direct sunlight. No tumble driers required. It doesn’t take long!
- Cool iron only (set iron to delicate or wool setting)
Allow 5% shrinkage
- Do not rub a stain. This causes fading
- Do not tumble dry
- Do not dry in direct sunlight, sun fades garments
- Do not use washing powders or stain remover, these can strip the colour & make the garment ‘chalky’ to touch
TIPS & TRICKS
- To remove perspiration or deodorant build up under the arms, soak overnight in a bucket of cool to lukewarm water with a half-cup of white vinegar added. The vinegar neutralises the alkaline build up left by sweat and washing powders. Rinse and line dry or wash as normal.
