NK iMODE How to Care for Silk Lingerie

You just spent a few hundred dollars on a silk nightgown and now you’re wondering, “How in the world am I going to take care of this?”

Do you toss the gown in the washer and dryer? Add a bit of bleach? (The answers are no, by the way.)

The experts at NK iMODE want you to know that caring for their silk creations isn’t hard. They’ve put together a few stress-free tips on How to Care for Silk Lingerie:

– Do –

Handle wet silk with care since it is very delicate

Use a mild soap (wool shampoo or pure household soap flakes)

Wash delicately in cold water

Rinse with cold water

Fill the sink again with cold water

Then add a teaspoon of white vinegar to remove soap residue

Rinse once more in cold running water

Wrap silk in a dry towel; gently and loosely roll it to remove moisture

Roll out the silk and straighten it gently at the corners

Use iron at coolest temperature setting

Iron your silk on the inside of the garment

“…never place your silk lingerie in the washing machine or drier, at the very least your lingerie will be wrinkled and at the very worst it may be ruined.” – Kathy Langhamer, Top Drawer lingerie.

If you’re purchasing NK iMODE’s lingerie pieces from a boutique here in the US, Canada and Europe, you may also get a few valuable tips on silk care from the store owners too:

Kathy Langhamer who has been selling lingerie at Top Drawer Lingerie for 23 years says, “…to always lay silks flat in the bathtub with a few inches of water and a bit of delicate fabric wash like Forever New. Then hang them to dry while they are still wet, the weight of the water ensure that the fabric stays wrinkle free.” She also says, “never place your silk lingerie in the washing machine or drier, at the very least your lingerie will be wrinkled and at the very worst it may be ruined.”
