Todd Layne Cleaners offers garment care and stain removal tips for sultry silk…

Just in time for Valentine’s Day!  You’ve been waiting for this day to show off your most precious unmentionables~  And then you realize they don’t look as good as the last time you wore them!  What are you going to do??  Only a day away!!

Here are a few tips on hand washing your “fun” wear:

  • Hard water?  You may wish to first add a spoonful of borax to the washing water
  • Use lukewarm water and mild, non-alkaline soap
  • While rinsing add a few drops of hair conditioner to the final rinse water for extra silky feel
  • Soaking silk for any more than a few minutes should be avoided
  • Do NOT use harsh detergents that contain bleaches or brighteners
  • Do NOT wring or twist; roll in towel to extract water
  • Hang dry – but avoid direct sunlight, radiators, and wooden hangers/racks
