Some people might think of silk as being difficult to care for, but here at Manito we have made it very easy for you to enjoy fine mulberry silk without the hassle. Our silk is machine washable, using the delicate cycle in cold water. Wash silk with other silks or alone. You don't want to risk snagging the delicate fabric on a zipper or having it pill from rubbing up against a coarser fabric inside the washing machine.
If you have smaller items like a pillowcase set or sleepwear it is easy to wash by hand although you must be careful not to wring out silk too forcefully when you want to dry it. Just gently squeeze the excess water out of the items and shake them a few times to get out the extra moisture & protect the fabric from wrinkling. Using a gentle detergent like Forever New or a gentle all-natural laundry soap is best to help your silk look and feel amazing for years.
To dry, either hang to dry or put it in the dryer with no heat on air fluff. This is very important as heat will quickly damage your beautiful silk bedding. If you have sheets, take them out of the dryer when they are slightly damp and put on your bed to finish drying. That is how you get any wrinkles or creases out of the silk without having to iron it. Just put the slightly damp sheets on your bed, smooth out the fabric and allow it to dry naturally.
We wanted everyone to enjoy the beauty, comfort and benefits of silk without too much effort. No dry cleaning, no ironing, no fuss. If you take good care of your Manito silk bedding it will provide you with many happy, relaxing and blissful sleeps.
