HOW DO I CARE FOR LUXURY SILK GARMENTS?
Watch our easy guide video below for a step by step tutorial on washing your luxury lingerie, and loungewear.
All Aemilia Couture Lingerie is handwash only, and should only be washed with a detergent stated as suitable for silk.
Please follow our care label which is attached to your garment, and follow this guide below to ensure your garments stay looking their best for years to come.
As silk is a natural fibre, it is normal to have some slight loss of dye when washing, so don’t be alarmed if a little colour comes out in the water. Do be careful not to hang dark and light colours near each other when drying, and never leave them soaking together.
We recommend that you hand wash all items in lukewarm water, using a special hand washing liquid for silks. Your lingerie should be added to the basin and immerse for approximately ten minutes, then rinse thoroughly, and gently squeeze out any excess water. Do not wring or twist, as this can damage the fibres and cause white lines to appear in the silk. Leave to dry flat. Use the spray to keep items fresh between wears.
If ironing, always use the cool setting, and try to iron garments whilst they are still damp if possible, to restore shine.
For best results with silk, we suggest that you use a steamer to smooth out any creases that will result from washing or wear.
When travelling, lingerie and other delicates are best kept in a separate bag inside your suitcase, with hook and eye fastenings done up, to avoid catching on other items.
