How To Clean A Hermes Scarf
Taking great care of your scarf is so essential to the investment you have made. Learn the best ways to clean your scarf and the ways to avoid ruing it.
This is the easiest way for those that have really expensive scarves or vintage pieces that they don't want to ruin. If you are nervous, this is the best way to go, especially for those Hermes scarves!
Silk can also be washed at home but you will need to get silk detergent to perform this method. You can find this product in some department stores or specialty stores. Once you have mixed the correct ratio, you let the scarf sit for 10 to 15 minutes. After it has sat in the water, you want to swirl it around the water gently. If there are stains, you can gently massage them. For bigger stains, I would recommend taking it to the dry cleaners. After you have massaged any small stains, you want to rise the scarf thoroughly and then roll the scarf up in a towel and gently press the towel to soak up some of the water. You will then want to hang the scarf in a dark spot, without any sunlight.
Delicate/Hand Wash Cycle:
I have an LG steam washer and have used the delicate and hand wash cycles before. The hand wash cycle works amazing for any wools and silks I have tried before. Most of the damage happens in the dryer so be sure to sure to use the above towel and hang dry method for drying. I have used the steam dryer cycle on my silk scarves before (ones that I didn't mind testing) and this also worked great
