How to dry silk?

Silk is a material made from natural fibers with which the most beautiful fabrics that exist are designed.
A silk fabric must be dried with special care to preserve its beautiful appearance.

Here are some rules to keep in mind when drying silk fabric. Failure to follow these instructions may permanently damage your fabric.

To dry silk laundry, hang it in a place where it will not be exposed to direct sunlight. Such exposure can damage the silk fiber and cause the fabric to fade.
You should also be careful not to hang silk linen on a wooden support. Stains used on wood may stain fabric.

If it is complicated to hang the laundry under the conditions mentioned, it is possible to dry it by laying it flat on a towel.

As you will have understood, drying silk requires time and patience, but its many benefits are worth paying all the necessary attention to.
Indeed, in addition to its magnificent appearance, silk has multiple properties, including incredible anti-acne, anti-aging and hypoallergenic properties. Silk works miracles on the skin and hair and promotes peaceful and restful sleep.
Properly maintained, silk textiles will remain intact and will continue to provide us with all their benefits for several years.
