- To prevent damage, do not hang silk scarves on hard metal hooks.
- You should store your silk scarf in an airtight container that is both clean and dry. If you need to repel moths, use natural lavender rather than mothballs; this prevents any bad smells. You may also hang your silk scarves, but make sure the area where you will hang them is clean, dry, and airy.
- If and when your silk needs washing, dry cleaning is the best option. However, if this is not possible then you may hand wash silks in cold water.
- Do not use alkaline detergent and do not wring, twist, or rub the silk scarf while hand washing.
- Don’t put your silk in the washing machine, you should never use a dryer when you want to dry your scarf. You should simply place it between two towels and let it dry in its own time that way.
- Silk scarves can be ironed, set the iron to low heat (or the silk setting). Iron silk only once it's dry and be sure to put a cloth between the silkand the iron. Do not spray or wet silkwhile ironing, you may get water-stains.
- Minimizing the length of time the iron is in contact with the fabric (even with the extra layer of cloth) will prevent burning.
