If you have a silk shirt or silk pillowcase you might be wondering how to wash it. It’s actually easier then you may think. Since silk is a delicate fabric you will need to hand wash the garment.
1. Fill a sink with cool water.
2. Place a few drops of your favorite laundry detergent in the water. Agitate the water with your hands so that it gets mixed around.
3. Soak the garment for 3-5 minutes making sure it’s fully submerged.
4. Agitate the garment in the water then rinse with cold water.
5. Do not ring out the garment instead use a towel to help absorb the excess water.
6. Hang dry until it’s dried.
How to do laundry step by step?
If you are new(er) to doing laundry it can seem like a daunting task. After doing laundry for over 25 years I’ve come to figure out a routine that works for me, and I’m here to share it with you.
- SORT – First, sort through all the dirty laundry. I like to sort in piles in front of my laundry room.
- I have a pile for hand wash / delicate washes
- Dry Cleaning
- Dark Colors
- Mixed colors
- Bed Linens
- READ TAGS – Before you start your first load I like to read the tags of any items I might be questioning to make sure they are in the correct pile.
- START – I typically start with my white load followed by my reds/pins, mixed colors, and darks. If I have delicate items to wash that I know will end up getting hung dried (hello ALL my Lilly Pulitzer pieces) I will wash these in between the whites and reds or reds and mixed colors depending on the colors of the pieces of clothing I’m washing.
- FOLD/HANG – Fold and hang your clothes the minute that they are dried. This is essential to ensure you don’t end up with wrinkly clothing.
- PUT AWAY – This seems to be my hardest part of the laundry system. Putting away the clothes! I try to put them away the minute I fold to ensure that I don’t have a massive amount of clothes to put away at once. Sometimes this doesn’t happen and that’s okay too.
One of my biggest tips is trying to dedicate one day a week. If we are home on the weekend I typically dedicate my Sundays to doing all the clothing wash, and Monday’s to wash all the towels, sheets, and throw rugs in my home. I find this system helps me. Once you get into the groove it will become second nature to you!
PRO TIP – If you happen to have kids don’t hesitate to get them involved! My kids started helping me sort clothing to be folded around age 3/4 and folding laundry by ages 4/5! Young kids especially are eager to learn and want to help. Start them young, and they will be laundry pros before they graduate high school!
