Silk wash

Any friend of Fleur of England is a friend of ours, so we've prepared the ultimate guide to care for your lingerie and delicates, to help you keep them looking good as new for longer.

1. BEFORE YOU WASH...

Most care labels on silk and delicate items, such as lingerie, lace and sheer fine fabrics these days say 'dry clean only'. However this hasn't always been the case: the truth is that most 'dry clean' only silk items, and many other delicate items, can be washed at home with little time and effort. If the garment is free from padding, tailoring, or embellishments, then there's every chance that it will wash really well with a delicate hand wash product and the right technique.


It's important that you check your silk or delicate garment for any details or structure such as pleats or unusual textured finishes as these could be damaged or misshapen when washed. 

Follow our guide to hand washing silk and delicates at home.

2. WASHING

Our No.4 Eco Wash for Silk and Delicates was created so that you can feel confident washing silk and delicates at home. Crafted with our proprietary formula and delicately fragranced with bergamot and patchouli, No.4 will leave silk garments refreshed and nourished.

All you have to do is:

1. Fill a basin with cool water and add 2-3 caps of our Eco Wash for Silk & Delicates

2. Turn the garment inside out and gently submerge it, then agitate the water with your hands to distribute the soap and water. (It is normal for a little dye to be released). Soak for up to 30 minutes.

3. Rinse with fresh cool water until the garment is free from soap and then gently press between your hands or against the sink.

4. Absorb excess water with a towel and leave to dry flat on towel. Alternatively, you can hang to dry, making sure to position the item correctly on a hanger to prevent stretching.

3. STORING

Although moths are better known for dining on cashmere and wool, they have been known to eat silk as well, so to protect your lingerie and ensure it continues to smell amazing (to us and not the moths) you can fold them in your drawers with a Natural Fragrance Bag. We even have these available by subscription (Anti-Moth Warrior Box) so you never forget to change them.
