Dry cleaning is best
If your pillow has applique or embroidery, it should be dry cleaned by a professional
If the item does not have embroidered or applique embellishments it may be hand wash with a mild silk detergent
Only use cold water
Do not dry by wringing you may roll in a dry towel to get rid of excess water
You may use a washer with a silk or cold water gentle setting
If you do use a washing machine, be sure to place the item inside of another pillow case and close. This prevents the fine silk threads from being damage by other fabrics
It is always best to air dry by hanging indoors away from direct sunlight
You may air tumble dry with NO heat in the dryer, as before put case in another case for protection.
If you use an iron use only on cool silk setting. Iron from the opposite side. Lightly mist water where you iron and place another fabric between iron and silk. Do not over water. A steam iron tends to drip and should be avoided.
