To clean your textiles you can dry clean, hand, or machine wash on cold. Depending on the stain, silk is best washed by hand with a mild detergent. Rinse well, squeeze out surplus moisture by rolling in a towel and hang to dry or tumble dry. Never spot treat your silk textile. Rubbing one area of silk can cause lightening in just that spot. For moderate stain removal, especially ones in the middle, wash the entire textile. Dark or unsightly stains should be taken to a dry cleaner.
