I know many of you send your silky babies off for dry cleaning, so this thread may not interest you... But I am a silk washer, and recently I tried the silk wash product featured prominently in PrincessB's spa day with MaggieD and gga. http://forum.purseblog.com/hermes/sisterhood-of-the-traveling-h-scarf-travel-journal-109105-96.html#post2880045 The Princess was bathed in Le Blanc Linen wash. I selected the Silk and Lingerie wash from Le Blanc's line of washes. I it!! I gave several scarves a bath this weekend, includeing some new ones that were quite stiff. And as some ancient ones that needed a fresh outlook! I want to pass along how much I like this wash... It rinses out very very well, and leaves a silky hand. All I do is wash and swish, rinse like mad, blot, and hang to dry. If there are wrinkes from the blotting, I may hit them with the blow dryer for a second or two, then let them hang. I gently smooth out any puckery hems while damp. It is humid here, so wrinkles are usually not a problem .... I am not much of an ironer. In any case, thats what I do...I know there are lots of different products and opinions, but I wanted to share how very happy I am with the results from Le Blanc.... http://www.linenwash.com/silk_wash.htm It mentiones the fresh scent of gardenias in the product description, but I do not get any fragrance off of the newly washed scarves, just a clean fresh smell. Thanks again to MaggieD and GGA!!
