How to Iron a Silk Scarf

Silk should be damp when pressed. Use a warm-never hot-iron and press on the wrong side using a piece of clean white cloth between the silk and the iron.

Tips to Keep your Silk Scarf at its Best

Apply make-up, lotions, and perfumes and allow them to dry completely before you put on your scarf.

Always store your scarf in a dry place. Be sure the scarf is completely clean and use lavender to repel clothes eating insects which can attack the natural fiber silk.

Use non-acid tissue paper to soften the folds of a scarf and prevent severe creases which can break fibers.
