E-MAIL TACKLE STAINS ASAP Pre­treat with a few drops of de­ter­gent, then wash ac­cord­ing to the care la­bel. If the stain doesn’t come out, wash again. SKIP DRY-CLEAN­ING Choose ma­chinewash­able silk. Turn in­side out be­fore wash­ing and use a de­ter­gent for del­i­cates, such as Woo­lite. AIR-DRY – IN THE TUM­BLE DRYER! Silk can wrin­kle when hung up to dry. To avoid this, use the air-only cy­cle on your tum­ble dryer for 10 min­utes to fluff and re­move deep creases. Then air-dry and iron on a low heat. WASH YOUR FACE If you’re us­ing silk bed­sheets and pil­low­cases, note that in­gre­di­ents in lo­tions and acne treat­ments can stain and damage silk. Re­move makeup and creams be­fore hop­ping into bed. Vicki Sleet
