Dry-cleaning is recommended for silk items. If you wish to wash your silk garments by hand, wash silk garments separately and always use a special detergent meant for natural silk, or Marseilles soap. Wash the item quickly in a large quantity of water, do not tubmle dry. Stretch garment into its original shape and iron on the reverse side when still damp. Stains can be removed with trichroloethylene, available from pharmacies.
