You can always dry clean your silk pillowcase, but because our products are made from high quality 100% pure silk, you can also clean it other ways. You have to do it properly, but don't worry...follow our steps and it will be simple!

What am I supposed to do?


Use a mild and pH balanced liquid washing detergent. 

*watch out for chemicals and enzymes in your detergent, they can dry out silk


Hand wash or machine wash inside out with cold or lukewarm water. Machine wash on a delicate setting. Place the pillowcase in a wash bag to help avoid scratching or pulling while in the wash.


Always hang to dry your pillowcase.


Avoid exposing to direct sunlight or wringing dry.

If your silk creases, those creases will soften with time. You can also iron and steam your silk on a low heat setting.

DO NOT steam your silk if you do not have a low heat setting. If the steam is too hot, it will burn the natural fibres of the fabric. 

Ironing your silk while still damp can help prevent over-drying.

Silk absorbs less skin product than other pillowcase fabrics, which means more product for your skin...none for your pillowcase! This is also great for preventing built up on your pillowcase. It is also an antibacterial fabric, but you should still wash your pillowcase regularly. Your face and hair products will be removed by a gentle wash and mild detergent but if you are using products with pigments or dye, be cautious of staining that may cause.
