Our silk bedding is made from natural materials, therefore they need special care and a natural way to treat them. Detergent can contaminate them with chemicals. The natural way to treat our silk filled duvets or toppers is to hang them out in the garden on a nice and breezy day for a couple of hours once or twice a year. Let the fresh air purify the silk!
As you should always protect your duvet with a removable and washable cover, your Snow Blossom silk filled duvet does not really need a thorough cleaning. Neither does the topper. If they need a thorough cleaning they should be professionally laundered. You can spot clean them with very gentle soap. Rinse the spot where you have cleaned with luke warm water thoroughly and leave to air dry.
Cot bed duvets can be hand washed or machine washed in 30° cycle using mild detergents suitable for silk.
Silk Bed Linen
As for our silk bed sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers, they should be hand washed or machine washed in 30° cycle or the lowest temperature setting using mild detergents suitable for silk. You can buy Snow Blossom's Silk Wash which is specially formulated for washing silk, wool and cashmere. When handwash, do not soak the silk in water for long as soaking too long can strip off the natural shine of silk. For makeup stains or problem stains pour a small amount of liquid neat on the stain and wash straightaway. If machine wash, we recommend to use a protective net bag. Then they can be air dried and ironed with cool setting on the inside while still damp.
Professional dry clean only.
100% silk filled pillow: Spot clean only. We suggest using 2 pillowcases for an extra protection. Airing the pillow can keep it fresh and soft.
50%silk, 50% polyester: This type of pillow can be machine washed in low temperature setting once a year.
Tip: When you get up in the morning, don't make the bed straight away. Turn your duvet over towards the end of the bed instead, let the fresh air or sunshine in (if your bed is near a window), for 10-20 minutes.
