Care of silks and fine cottons
We do not recommend dry cleaning. To hand wash:
Dissolve baby shampoo (for silks) or mild soap (for cottons) in lukewarm water. Soak garment briefly. Work soap through gently; do not wring. Do not use detergents.
Rinse until rinse water remains clear. Rinse again with a quarter cup of white vinegar added to the rinse water to neutralize any remaining soap and to restore the fabric’s natural sheen. Rinse once again in clear, cool water to remove the smell of vinegar.
Roll in a towel to absorb excess moisture.
Dry flat on a towel or hang on a padded hanger. Do not dry in sun or direct heat.
Iron while still slightly damp, at a low-medium temperature for silk, or medium-high for cotton. If fabric is completely dry, it is important to re-dampen it before ironing.
