We see you. Our luxury cubists with your pillows sumptuously wrapped in silk. You lay on your pillow on your chez lounge, gazing wistfully at the white sandy beach as a soft sea breeze gently billows the chiffon curtains around you. You lazily lift a chocolate covered strawberry to your mouth when **gasp!** the strawberry releases itself from your tender grasp and lands directly onto your silk pillowcase! Alack! But what to do? Can anyone save you from the predicament in which you find yourself??
Sure, we can help you with that! While our silk pillowcases are delicate and need to be hand-washed, the actual process of hand-washing these pillowcases is not difficult or time consuming. In fact, you can knock this out in four easy steps!
1.) Preparation: Strap your cleaning gloves on and fill a small basin or sink with cool or cold water (water should be feel cool to the touch) and add a gentle detergent.
2.) Washing: Place your pillowcase in the soapy water, zipper closed, then gently stir it around, and then it sit for a few minutes.
3.) Blot Drying: Do not wring your silk pillowcase out and don’t toss it in the dryer! This is important! The best way to dry your silk pillowcase is to lay it out on a dry towel and use the surrounding towel (the towel without the pillowcase on it) to blot dry the case.
4.) Drip Drying: When you’ve done the best you can to blot dry your pillowcase, drape it over a padded bar or hanger and hang over the tub to drip dry.
Once your case is dry, you can place it back on your pillow and recommence luxuriating. After all, those strawberries aren’t going to eat themselves…
