Styles aus Seide richtig pflegen – so läuft alles glatt

Care for styles made of silk properly – so everything runs smoothly

It's worth taking a look at the label

Silk is a particularly high-quality material and although it is relatively delicate, some silk textiles can even be washed in the washing machine. Therefore, first take a look at the label of your silk blouse before you send the beloved item to the dry cleaner . That's not necessary at all. With the following tips you can easily clean your silk garments yourself.

Wash silk in the washing machine

If the corresponding care symbol is shown on the label, you can easily wash the good piece of silk in the machine.

Choose the program for delicate or gentle laundry but be sure to use the right detergent. Our Silk & Viscose care detergent is a care product that is perfectly tailored to the silk fiber. This keeps the colors bright and fresh and the fabric soft and supple.

The right silk detergent for hand washing
If the silk garment is not suitable for machine washing according to the label, hand washing is also completely uncomplicated.

Since the protein fibers of silk are destroyed by conventional, alkaline detergents, it is just as important to choose the right care product. Our Silk & Viscose care detergent is based on natural raw materials, contains no brighteners or bleaches and is also biodegradable. Whether you wash it in the machine or by hand, you can clean the sensitive material with our silk detergent without any worries. 

Hand wash silk

You will see that hand washing is very easy. First let the clothes soak in lukewarm water (not over 30 degrees) for about 10 minutes.

Then press it through a little, rinse briefly, and you're done. It is important that you do not wring out the textile afterwards, but simply squeeze it out a little.

Dry silk properly

After you have carefully squeezed your silk textiles , you can also briefly roll them in a dry towel to remove most of the moisture from the garment. Then simply let the side part dry out either lying down or hanging on a shaped hanger.

What applies to us humans also applies to silk fabrics: they react sensitively to UV rays. Therefore, please do not expose it to direct sunlight, especially when drying.

Wrinkle-free - iron silk correctly

If you want to iron your beloved silk garment, you should start when it is still slightly damp.

Iron your textile inside out and on the back. If it is already too dry in some places, simply place a damp cloth underneath. It is important that you do not spray water on it, as this could cause stains.

As you can see, there is no reason to do without valuable natural textiles . If you follow a few care steps and choose the right detergent, nothing stands in the way of wearing high-quality fabrics and looking glamorous.

Our exclusive Princess Goes Hollywood care detergent series offers the right care for all fibers, whether for silk & viscose , wool & cashmere or cotton & linen . The particularly nice thing about it? All detergents are biodegradable and even the bottles are made from 100% recycled PET. This way you can extend the life of your clothing and also do something good for the environment.
