How to Clean & Store your C21 Silk Scarf
If there is one accessory that really speaks the language of versatility to the sophisticated, corporate woman, it is a silk scarf!
A scarf is also a great trans-seasonal accessory, perfect for the in-between seasons weather which we are currently experiencing.
With the huge popularity of our scarves we thought it worthwhile to share some information on storing, cleaning and the do's and don't for caring for your scarf.
How to store your silk scarf
We recommend hanging your scarf in a cool and dry place as this prevents it from creasing. Silk fabric creases easily, so to reduce the amount of steaming you can drape your scarf flat over hangers in your wardrobe. If you are storing your scarf for a long period of time we recommend folding neatly into a breathable pouch or bag, or storing in an airtight container.
How To Clean Your Silk Scarf
After you've removed as much moisture as possible with the towels, air-dry the scarf by hanging it on a plastic hanger. Never use a wooden or metal hanger, which can stain or leave rust on the fabric.
Never place silk in an automatic dryer, even on low heat. Don't place silk scarves near any source of heat or hang them in the sun because it can cause fading. However, do dry them as quickly as possible. Rapid drying in front of an electric fan prevents the formation of watermarks and helps retain the glossy finish.
Silk should be slightly damp when pressed. Use a warm—never hot!—iron setting. Press the scarf on the wrong (opposite) side of the fabric using a piece of clean white cloth between the silk and the iron.
"My personal go to tip when travelling is to use the lowest heat setting on your hair dryer, hold one end and keeping a safe distance very quickly blow the wrinkles out of the fine silk"
We hope you enjoy and love the C21 Silk Scarves as much as we do!
