Here’s a guide to keeping your silk pillowcase SHEEN, SHINY, and SMOOTH:

1. Hand-washing or machine-washing is fine.
Generally, people would recommend hand-washing or dry-cleaning silk due to its intricate nature. But not many people have time to do these, so they instead opt for machine-washing.

A good metric to look at is the density of your silk fabric – Momme. Should the Momme be higher than 20, it's safe enough to be inside the washing machine. If you know it's less than 20, choose to hand-wash instead. EverSilk silk pillowcases are 22 Momme, so you can trust that they can handle being machine-washed with enough love and care.

2. A delicate fabric merits delicate treatment.
To avoid the wearing out of fibres, never wash your pillowcases/beddings on a high temperature. ESPECIALLY for silk as it can be damaged easily. When using a machine, keep the temperature at 30 degrees Celsius or under.

Turn the silk pillowcase inside out, place inside a mesh laundry bag, and wash with a mild detergent. Use a basic detergent (with low pH) such as washing soap. Heavy chemicals can only harden the silk (eg, alkaline, bleach).

Only wash silk along with your other delicates and watch out for laundry items that have sharp elements like zippers or hooks. Try to run in the shortest spin possible to prevent any damage.

3. Air-drying is recommended.
Don’t try removing absorbed water in silk by twisting it – this can result to intense wrinkling. It’s good to always be extra careful when handling silk, so keep it away from direct sunlight when air-drying.

4. Iron it out.
Most irons would have a'silk' setting available on them. If you fail to find one, use the lowest setting possible. Be mindful of your iron’s metal surface and make sure it’s free of any stains.

Iron it on the back side to avoid any damage on the sheen side. You may even use a thin sheet of cotton as a barrier between your iron and the silk fabric.

Quick tip: Though silk pillowcases can be washed in a machine, it's safest to hand wash them in order to maximise the life of your pillowcase.

Enjoy your beauty sleep!
