Silk needs professional cleaning if you want to maintain it in a good condition. Its delicate fibers require proper treatment that should be as mild as the one you would apply to your own hair, in fact. The best idea is to have your silk shrug dry cleaned, but if you prefer to do it at home, wash it using soft detergents, preferably for silk products, and rinse it in cold water to extend the softness of the fabric. Don’t wring the garment; instead, roll it in a towel. When it’s dry, steam it to smoothen out the wrinkles or iron it at low heat and inside out.
