How to hand wash silk pillowcases

Follow these instructions to hand wash and keep your silk pillowcases looking like new:

  • Wash in lukewarm water with any non-alkaline soap.
  • Rinse thoroughly! You can add pure white vinegar to the rinse water to neutralize traces of alkali and dissolve soap residue.
  • (For extra tips)To retain your silk’s natural luster, don’t soak it for more than 3-5 minutes, avoid washing it in very cold or hot water, and never use any harsh detergents that contain bleaches or brighteners. For silk pillowcases in a dark color, you’d better wash them separately as the color can come out because of the nature of silk.
