Way to Wash Silk Scarf


Silk scarves are elegant adornments. We always want them keep the beautiful colors and shapes as new. If we hold the right way to wash them, it’s not impossible. Here is the way to clean the silk scarf by hand.
1. No matter you choose a soap or dishwashing detergent, be sure to test it on a small portion of the scarf to determine the colorfastness of the scarf. If the color of the silk changes in any way, consider using a small amount of delicate fabric soap.
2. If the soap or dishwashing detergent passed the test, then soak the scarf in lukewarm water with the soap or dishwashing detergent for about 2 minutes. You can also put a small quantity of salt in the water before washing the scarf. It can help prevent color from bleeding. Then you can rub the scarf gently.
3. Rinse the scarf in cool and clean water.
4. Add some vinegar, and rinse again. The vinegar will help brighten the color and shine of the silk. Be sure to rinse out all of the vinegar.
5. After the scarf is completely rinsed, squeeze softly to get excess water out and lay it flat in between two towels. If you need ironing, iron on a medium setting while scarf is still slightly damp.
It’s easy, right?
