Silk lingerie is strong but very delicate - so extra care must be taken when washing it.

Use only a mild soap or silk wash. Never use detergent on silk.
Soak the lingerie in warm water for about five minutes.
Agitate gently, but do not twist it.
Rinse well using cold water (you may add a teaspoon of vinegar to the rinse to remove all traces of soap).
Roll the lingerie in a towel and lay flat to dry.
Iron while slightly damp or you can hang the lingerie in a steamy bathroom to remove wrinkles.
