  • Never wash silk with chlorine-based bleach, which can damage the natural fibers. If you need to whiten a silk scarf, use an oxygen-based bleach.
  • Before submerging your scarf, test it for colorfastness. Dab the scarf with a wet white cloth to see if any color comes off.
  • If you must wash the silk scarf in a washing machine, put it in a mesh bag and wash on a delicate cycle. Do not machine-dry, as the heat will ruin the fabric.
