The Living Force
I wash my silk clothing in the washing machine with homemade detergent and cold water and dry them in the dryer on low. Whether hand washing only is appropriate really depends on the particular silk clothing.Christine said:Ant22 said:They say "Highest quality fine silk blend" but if it was silk-rich I'm quite sure they'd want to put it on the website explicitly.
I'm always very cautious and not trusting at all when it comes to the quality of goods purchased online.
In fact, I have very negative experience when it comes to purchasing silk from a China based seller. It's quite easy to check if it's silk: these are not very expensive so just wash one of them in your washing machine in 30 degrees. If it survives, it's not silk. Silk can only be hand washed in cold water :)
I put a square of silk in the washing machine, it came out without being damaged and as it was wrinkled I ironed it without problem.
Then for me mine are not silk. :(
