Silk Saree Washing instruction

If you follow the following instructions, your silk saree will always be new.
  1. Gently rinse your silk saree in plain cold water. For the first three washes don’t use soap.
  2. You can use shampoo or your bathing soap for the subsequent washes.
  3. It is very important to note that wash the pallu, border and body separately.
  4. You can use a protein shampoo with warm/cold water. The shampoo protein will feed the protein in the silk.
  5. Avoid using chemicals – these may damage and reduce the lifespan of the silk.
  6. Do not brush or lash the silk saree; it might lead to tearing the zari.
  7. Avoid twisting or wringing the silk.
  8. Do not bundle and keep wet for long durations.
