Cotton and Linen 

To prevent your garments from losing their color, it is best to hand wash them in cold water. If using the washing machine, always use a cold wash and delicate cycle. 

Air drying is always best for your garments and the planet. Cotton and linen are fairly tough fabrics and can be ironed at higher temperatures without the risk of shininess or burning. 

 

Silk 

Hand wash using a gentle detergent specifically designed for washing wools, silks, or delicate fabrics. Dissolve the washing detergent in lukewarm water. Add the garment and gently agitate it, very lightly rubbing any stains. Gently squeeze the excess washing water out (do not wring or twist as this will damage the fabric). Rinse the item in lukewarm water until there’s no soap residue. Lay the garment on a clean dry towel and gently press the water out of the fabric by rolling it up in the towel. Hang to air dry. Silk should only be ironed when absolutely necessary; it is better for the garment to allow it to dry naturally, hanging on a thick hanger to remove any creases.
