1.For washable duvets or pillows, we recommend machine washing.
*For those without the time, patience, or just physically unable to hand-wash silk, our products can withstand machine washing as well. Of course, there is more risk involved, and certain precautions must be taken to minimize them.
> And you can follow the rules below:
(1). Check the fabric care label.
Before you throw in the wash, check the tag to see if it can be machine washed.Some silk items may lose color or get damaged if you use machine washing.
(2). Sort the laundry.
Wash different colors and fabric separately.
(3). Use a protective mesh bag.
Turn your silk item inside out and place it in a delicates mesh bag to avoid the shearing and tearing of silk fibers.
(4). Add the proper amount of neutral or special detergent for silk to the machine.
TENESTAR recommended as it is detergent specifically designed to care for silk items. Please follow the instruction on the bottle.
(5). Start a delicate cycle.
Machine wash cold on a gentle cycle. Most washing tools should have a "delicate" setting. Some machines even have a silk setting specifically for cleaning silk.washed out.
(6). Minimize spin time.
Spinning can bevery dangerous for silk fabric as the forces involved can shear weaker silk fibers.
(7). Use a towel to soak up water after the wash.

tips: For daily maintenance, you can turn your comforter over towards the end of the bed instead of after you get up and let the fresh air or the sunshine in (if your mattress is near a window) for 10-20 minutes. It helps freshen your comforter considerably.
