Silk is known for its luxury and smoothness.
It’s a myth that silk is “too delicate” or difficult to care for – it
just requires a different type of care. In order to extend the life of silk
sheets, it is important to know how to choose, fold, wash, dry, iron, and store
silk sheets to keep them beautiful and like new for as long as possible.

 

Choosing

When choosing silk fitted sheets, make sure
you choose the suitable color that go with your overall room decoration.
Otherwise, you may find it is a little bit weird of your room. Or you may want
to change it, after using it for a period of time. Silk fabric is very
luxurious and expensive, surely you don’t want the investment to upset you a
lot.

 

Folding

You will have a neat and clean silk fitted sheet after following the steps below:

1.         Lay your silk fitted
sheet
flat on the bed or a table with the inside out

2.         Find the four corners

3.         Tuck the two corners on the
right into the two corners on the left

4.         Fold the left pocket over the
right pocket

5.         Give it a shake, spread the
sheet and straighten it as neat as you can

6.         Fold the sheet into a rectangle
until the size is what you want

Washing

2  Machine wash in lukewarm water (30°C) on most gentle cycle
available.

2  Wash separately from other items using a silk friendly detergent.

2  Do not use bleaches for washing your silk fitted
sheet

2  Your silk fitted sheet looks more lustering when you drop some
vinegar into the water when washing them.

2  New towel and flannelette can remove the stains or mildew on the
silk pajamas, so does the alcohol and ammonium hydroxide

Drying

2  Hang dry if possible.

2  Tumble dry on a cool setting if using drying machine.

2  Avoid drying for extended period of time.

Ironing

2  Iron when slightly damp using a cool setting. Overheating would
cause damage to the surface of silk fabric.

2  Always iron on the inside.

Storing

 

2  Fold your silk
fitted sheet
well when you don’t use it, put it into a protective bag or lay
it flat on your wardrobe.

2  Wrinkles will smooth out when the sheets are replaced on your bed or
folded and placed under other sheets or towels.
