Silk shirt looks luxurious and feels soft and smooth next to your skin, thus it is an excellent addition to any wardrobe. However, if you make the mistake of drying silk shirts incorrectly, you cannot enjoy it for very long. Fortunately, you can correctly dry it by yourself as long as you take the following steps.
- Immediately put the shirt on the towel after washing.
- Roll up the towel to wipe away excess water. Do not twist the shirt, as this may destroy its shape.
- Hang the shirt on the pad.
- Dry it in a dry area away from the sun because the sun can change the color of the shirt.
If the shirt label says “dry cleaning only”, you had better send it to local dry cleaner.
