How to Care For Scarves
Post On:2013-11-18 08:11:28

Silk Scarf

For Hand Wash

  • Check the care label of your scarf to be sure it indicates Hand Wash before choosing this option.
  • Fill a basin or sink with lukewarm water.
  • Add a small amount of gentle detergent or baby shampoo to the water.
  • Place silk scarves in the water. Wash each silk scarf separately; otherwise, colors may bleed into one another.
  • Rinse the scarves with cool water until the water runs clear.
  • Roll the scarves in a towel to absorb excess moisture. Blot them carefully to remove damp spots.
  • Place the scarves on a hanger and hang them up until they are almost dry but still damp. Do not hang them in direct sunlight.
  • Iron the silk scarves completely dry. Place your iron on the "silk" setting or a low setting if your iron doesn't have this feature, and don't use steam.

For Dry Clean

Ask your cleaners whether they have a special solution for silk garments. (Hand Wash is recommended; during Dry Clean some chemical constituents may damage the fabric.)

Warning
  • Test your silk scarves for colorfastness before washing them. You can do this by applying a small amount of water to a small part of the scarf.
  • Cosmetics and perfumes can stain and damage silk, so be careful applying these while wearing silk scarves.

Wool / Cashmere / Pashmina / Viscose Scarf

For Hand Wash

  • Check the care label of your scarf to be sure it indicates Hand Wash before choosing this option.
  • Fill a basin or sink with lukewarm water.
  • Add a small amount of gentle detergent or professional detergent to the water.
  • Place scarves in the lukewarm water. Wash each scarf separately; otherwise, colors may bleed into one another.
  • Rinse the scarves with lukewarm water until the water runs clear.
  • Roll the scarves in a towel to absorb excess moisture. Blot them carefully to remove damp spots.
  • Place the scarves on a fresh towel until it has dried completely.
  • Do not hang scarves up to dry because this tends to stretch the fabric and causes it to lose shape.
