Care

DO’s

Hand wash silk pillowcases inside out in cold water to maximize the lifetime of your silk pillowcase OR Machine wash cold (or just one level above cold) on gentle cycle/silk mode, with a mesh laundry bag separate from other fabrics.

ALWAYS Use a mild neutral liquid detergent OR silk-specific detergents.

DO NOT’s

Do not soak dark-colored silk for more than five minutes. Wash separately and do not mix with other harsher fabrics.

Do not tumble dry. Use a towel to soak up any excess moisture after washing, then hang up your silk pillowcase to air dry

NEVER use bleach products as they will cause the silk to yellow.

Do not iron your silk pillowcase. Wrinkles in silk should disappear with time however if you do need to iron your silk pillowcase, use a low setting without steam and iron the pillowcase inside-out while it is damp.

TIPS

You can also add a few drops of hair conditioner or white vinegar to the rinse water to help keep the silk as soft and smooth as the day you bought it.


WASHING

Wash your Bamboo Sheets by themselves in cold water (Max. 30C OR 86F) on a gentle cycle. 

Washing your sheets separately from other fabrics is very important because more abrasive fabrics, zippers, fasteners, hooks, etc can cause piling and wear.

Avoid washing your sheets with towels or blankets because it can cause them to become covered with lint.

STAIN REMOVAL

If you use a stain remover, we recommend testing it on the bamboo fabric bag your bedding comes in to make sure the product won’t damage the fabric.

DRYING

We recommend that you line dry your bamboo sheets to get the most out of them. However, most people will put them in the dryer. If you are one of those people, make sure you choose the lowest heat setting and a low tumble cycle.

These sheets WILL wrinkle. You can prevent this by taking your sheets out of the dryer immediately after they finish. Drape them for a few hours if you have to. Iron them at a low temperature if you need to. 

The sateen weave of these sheets means that they are more prone to wrinkling and tearing than your regular twill-woven cotton sheets, but the trade-off is that they will be WAY softer than almost any other sheets.
