Washing Instructions for Silk Pillowcases - Keeping Your Silk Pillowcases Luxurious


Gentle Cleansing: Hand-washing is Key

Silk thrives on a gentle touch. Handwashing is the preferred method for cleaning your silk pillowcases. Here's what you'll need: 

Water Temperature Cool or lukewarm (below 30°C or 86°F)
Detergent Gentle, designed for delicates or silk (pH natural)
Agitation Avoid harsh scrubbing or wringing
Rinsin Thorough with cool water


  • Fill the basin with cool or lukewarm water and add a small amount of your chosen detergent.


  • Turn your pillowcases inside out and gently submerge them in the water. Swirl the fabric carefully to loosen any dirt.


  • Avoid harsh agitation or scrubbing, which can damage the silk fibers.


  • Rinse thoroughly with cool water until all the soap is removed.


Avoid harsh detergents, bleach, or fabric softeners.

Squeezing Out the Excess, Not the Life


Don't wring or twist the silk.


Press gently with a clean towel to absorb moisture.


Patience is a Virtue: Air Drying is Key


Lay flat on a clean, dry towel or drying rack.


Avoid direct heat and sunlight.


Allow to air dry completely.


Taming the Wrinkles: Steaming is a lifesaver


Use a steamer to gently remove wrinkles.


Hold steamer at a safe distance (15-20 cm).


Distilled water can help prevent water spots.


Machine Washing

All you need:

A gentle detergent specifically designed for delicates or silk. Since silk is an organic product, chemical-containing cleaners damage silk.

Use a pH natural detergent.

A mesh laundry bag and delicate cycle with cold water.

Skip the spin cycle or use the lowest setting.

Air dry flat


When in Doubt, Dry Clean

Consider professional dry cleaning for heavily soiled pillowcases.


Bonus Tip: Store with Care

Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture. Fold loosely instead of storing crumpled.
