Is there anything more embarrassing than smearing your lipstick all over your silk blouse? Or splattering coffee all over a silk tie? What if you take silk clothes out of the wash and discover they've shrunk to half their original size? Many a garment disaster has been caused by this fragile material, but it doesn't have to be. Cleaning silk isn't particularly difficult. Here are the three main points:

1. Important factors to remember when washing silk.

2. How to hand-wash silk?

3. What is the best way to clean silk in the washing machine?

1. Important factors to remember when washing silk.

Cleaning silk shirt doesn't have to be dangerous if you keep these tips in mind.

First, check for colorfastness. You don't want the color of your silk strands to fade. Dap a small area of the fabric with a moist white cloth to see if the dye will remain put (making sure it is clean first). If the color fades, take it to the dry cleaners.

Silk shirt should be washed with care. For fragile fabrics, you'll need a non-biological detergent.

Silk shirt should not be tumble-dried. It is likely to shrink or be damaged as a result of the heat.

Bleach should not be used. Using a harsh solution to clean silk can easily damage the natural fibers.

2. How to hand-wash silk?

As long as the clothing isn't marked 'dry clean only,' hand washing is often a safe option for cleaning silk. To be sure, check the garment care tag, then follow these steps:

1. Check to see if your silk item is colorfast and can be hand washed.

2. Fill a sink halfway with lukewarm water and add a dose of Persil Non-Bio Liquid Detergent, according to the package directions.

3. Allow the silk clothing to soak in the water for five minutes.

4. Drain the sink and replace it with cold water, then add Comfort Pure fabric softener. Follow the product label's dosing recommendations once again.

5. Soak the silk shirt for another minute before rinsing it under cold water to remove all of the detergent and fabric softeners.

6. To press the water out of the clothing, gently squeeze it. Wringing silk will cause the fabric to stretch, causing harm to the shape of your garment.

7. To remove excess water, lay the silk on a flat cloth and wrap it up. Then spread it flat to dry on a cloth. Tumble dryers can cause silk to shrink due to the heat.

3. What is the best way to clean silk in the washing machine?

You don't have time (or patience) to wash your hands? Some silk shirt may be machine washed, so check the label to see if it's safe to do so.

1.Check to see if the silk is colorfast and machine washable. If your silk garment's care label specifies that it should only be hand washed or dry cleaned, don't use the machine.

2.Place the silk shirt in the washing machine alone or with comparable colors and materials; do not include any heavier things, especially those with fastenings, as they may harm the silk during the wash cycle's harshness and tumble.

3.Follow the instructions on the package for adding a dosage of a gentle non-bio detergent.

4.Set the washing machine to the 'delicate' cycle and use cold water.

5.Place the silk cloth on a clean, flat towel to dry naturally once the washing cycle is complete.
