For first three washes, dry cleaning is advisable for silks.
If ever silk is washed in water, ensure it is washed in soft lukewarm water using a good neutral soap only.
Squeeze lightly with hand to remove water after washing.
Always dry the silk in shade only on a flat surface instead of hangers.
Use low / medium heat while ironing.
Always iron silk on the reverse side.
Never spray water to dampen silk before ironing as it may cause water spots on fabric.
Do not wash stains with water, instead give it for dry cleaning.
