Silk scarf is such a soft fabric that mostly sits next to the skin. Over the time, scarf also picks up perspiration and natural pollutants from the air. The acids and salts present in contamination can damage the fibers so the scarves must be cleaned. If well taken care of, a silk scarf will last for decades, making it an intelligent investment in quality outfits. By knowing the right way to clean, dry, press, and store silk, you can keep your silk scarf in top condition for years.

1.How Can You Wash Your Silk Scarves: The silk scarves can be hand washed in cold water with a mild-soap. Be careful not to rub or twist the scarf too hard as well as not to let it soak for hours in the water. Check DIY tasks of scarf hub to check how to wash silk at home.

2.Dry your silk scarf away from direct sunlight: Roll the silk scarf into a bath towel and gently press the water out. Never wring silk. When most of the water is out, finer silk should be hung up to dry. Use a padded or plastic hanger to distribute the weight of the wet scarf. Air dries the scarf away from sunlight until damp dry.

3.How to Store Your Fashion scarves for Long Time: Roll the scarf to prevent forming ridges, rather than folding it or simply stuffing it into a drawer. If you are storing your fashion scarves for a long period, take it out every six months to allow air circulation around the soft silk. As a natural fiber, soft silk needs to take in.

4.Dry-clean your scarf if it is a crinkled or brocaded silk: If there is any form of embroidery or embellishment on your scarf, take it to a dry cleaner instead of relying on products at home to clean the silk yourself.

5.Protect your scarf from harsh chemicals and high temperature: Harsh chemicals, such as perfume sprayed on your scarf, may cause spotting or even cause the silk fibers to deteriorate. High temperatures will often cause the fibers to shrink. Do not ever put a silk scarf in the dryer.

6.Iron a wrinkled or creased scarf while damp: Silk should be pressed while still damp, not when completely dry. While damp, press the silk item from the back side with a dry iron at a warm (silk) setting. A steam iron at a low setting may be used, being sure the iron doesn’t spit, which would cause water spots. When ironing the fabric dry, use a press cloth on the right side of the scarf.
