How to Wash a Silk Pillowcase
We all need deep, restful sleep to maintain good health and refresh our bodies. One of the best tools for maintaining shiny hair and a healthy complexion after a night's sleep is a silk pillowcase.
Sleeping on a silk pillowcases offers benefits well beyond the sheer glamour of it all. If your hair is prone to frizziness, the silk will help to keep your locks from becoming overly dry. And for those who are prone to acne, dermatologists recommend silk pillowcases as a way to reduce blemishes. Dry clean can prolong the lifespan of silk, but it can also be achieved if you follow the instructions for washing silk.
Silk is a natural fibre and washing in a solution that’s too acidic or alkaline can cause the silk to harden in a single wash. If you can't find a detergent that specifies ph level then just go for one that specifies silk. Do not use bleach products.
Another important factor is water temperature. Even just slightly above 30 degrees Centigrade or 85 degrees Fahrenheit can change silk dramatically. The safest method if your machine doesn't specify exact heat settings is either cold or just one level above cold.
If you wish to maximize the life of your pillowcase, hand washing is the ultimate method. The gentler you wash your slip pillow case, the longer it will keep its sheen. The shinier it is, the better it will 'slip', which is one of the benefits to its health and beauty qualities. The same goes for drying your pillowcase, do not place in tumble dryer.
Go through the above steps and clean your silk pillowcases with enough care, you’ll find that silk pillowcases can also last for many years.

Loved this case, washed a few times and in good condition still. I plan to buy more.
This pillowcase delivers everything it promises in the description. My hair doesn't knot up in the back when I sleep on it.
