How To

How-To | Wash Silks & Delicates

Jul 8, 2012

Silks & Delicates are a breeze to clean at home with our specially formulated Delicate Wash!

*Our rule of thumb for blended fabric is to wash according to the highest percentage. i.e. if your sweater is 70% cashmere and 30% silk, wash with our Wool & Cashmere Shampoo and follow the appropriate washing recipe.

Tools:

Delicate Wash, Stain Solution and/or Wash & Stain Bar

Optional:

Delicate Spray, Scented Vinegar, Stain Brush, Mesh Washing Bag

Pre-treat:

Hand washing:

  • To wash - submerge item(s) in a cool water bath with 2 capfuls of The Laundress Delicate Wash.
  • Use your hands to agitate the water and detergent.
  • Soak for ½ hour (do not soak silk for longer).*
  • Rinse well - running room temperature water until soapy water is gone.
  • Do not wring; press the water out of the item instead.

*DO NOT PANIC if you see color in the water. This is normal and it is simply the yarn dye releasing color. You will not notice any loss of color at the end.

Machine washing:

  • Change machine setting to delicate cycle and add the appropriate amount of Delicate Wash in the machine.
  • Turn item inside out and place in The Laundress Mesh Bag and wash.
  • Remove from the washer promptly to reduce creasing. Do not put in the dryer!

Dry/Finish:

  • Lay item flat on a drying rack, a towel, or hang to dry.
  • Some items may need to be steamed after washing.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Hand washing will lengthen the life of colored garments.
  • Clean your washer monthly - fill the dispensers with Scented Vinegar and sprinkle All-Purpose Bleach Alternative into the bleach dispenser and run a lengthy, empty load with hot water.
