It is a high quality enjoyment to have silk sheets. When entering the dry autumn, the use of silk kits containing 18 kinds of amino acids and natural porous protein fibers can protect skin and improve sleep quality. But many people don't know how to clean silk sheets. Let's tell you that cleaning silk sheets is very simple.
Choose silk special detergent
Silk is acid-resistant and alkali-resistant, so the most direct way to judge silk is alkali dissolution. At present, many detergents are alkaline, which may damage the fabric, so we need to use special detergent for silk. If there is no special detergent for silk, it is also possible to use shampoo and bath gel instead.
Cold water instead of hot water
Silk is a protein fiber that turns yellow when exposed to hot water. If hot water is used in washing, it will cause fabric yellowing, and silk fabrics generally use acid dyes, hot water will lead to worsening fading oh.
Dry with water, do not wring dry
Silk fabric is easy to wrinkle. Do not use a washing machine to dry or dry it by hand. If using a washing machine, it may cause the silk fabric to wrinkle. It is best to dry it with water.
Air dry, not sun dry
Silk protein content is very high, and there is strong ultraviolet ray in sunlight. Although silk absorbs ultraviolet ray, protein will coagulate and become brittle, yellowing and toughness will disappear when it meets ultraviolet ray, so it is suitable for ventilation and drying.
Drying to 80% dry, medium and low temperature ironing
Silk wrinkles easily and needs ironing. But high temperature will cause the fabric to turn yellow and brittle. Therefore, it is better to air the product to 80% dry and iron the silk surface with white cloth (at medium and low temperatures, no steam, no water spraying).
As long as you master the above points, the washing of the silk kit can be easily done, so that each of us can safely and boldly use silk products. The improvement of the quality of life is actually in the drip of life!
