A common question we get asked is how to care for our silk Beauty Pillows, and so we have put together a guide on this, to help you get those most out of yours.
When it’s time to wash your silk Beauty Pillow, fill a bucket or sink with cold water. Add a small amount of laundry soap or gentle detergent. Swirl your pillowslip around in the water and allow it to soak for a minute or so before removing from the soapy water. Gently rinse until all the soap residue is gone.
To dry, allow excess water to drip off. Don’t wring or squeeze, but instead lay your pillowslip over a clean dry towel and gently roll the towel up, allowing the towel to extract most of the moisture from the silk. Unravel the towel and lay the pillowslip flat on a fresh dry towel or place over a clothes horse to air dry somewhere shaded. It’s important not to tumble dry, as this can shrink and damage the fabric.
If you wish to iron your silk pillowslip, please ensure the iron is set on low, or the ‘silk’ setting.
Ensure your silk Beauty Pillow is completely dry before folding and storing away somewhere free from moisture.
Taking the time to care for your silk will ensure a long life for your Beauty Pillow. We feel hand washing our garments allows for an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the ritual. We invite you to browse our selection of 100% silk Beauty Pillows to consider for your home.
