A surprisingly easy step-by-step guide!
  • Fill a sink or bowl with enough lukewarm or cold water to submerge your slip

  • Add a few drops of gentle detergent, try to use an extra gentle brand or silk specific. Mix the water around with your hand to mix the soap

  • Submerge your slip so it's completely covered in water and leave to soak for no longer than 3 minutes

  • Gently plunge it up and down to move the water through the fabric and gently wash out dirt or residue

  • Remove and rinse with cold water until you can no longer see any soap

  • Lay a towel flat on a table with the slip on top and roll the towel from one end to the other with the garment inside. This gently absorbs excess moisture, avoid ringing as it can damage the fabric.

  • Leave to dry on a coat hanger, not in direct sunlight as this can cause fading

  • Begin by hanging slip on a hanger overnight

  • If this doesn't straighten out those wrinkles, keep your slip on a hanger and place in your bathroom while taking a shower or steamy bath. The indirect heat and steam is a gentle and easy way of de-creasing.

  • If those wrinkles still persist, turn inside out and iron on the 'silk' or cool setting.

  • Careful! A hot iron/steam can pucker or burn finer fabrics.

  • For grease/make-up marks, tap a little talc powder onto your finger and gently pat onto the spot until it's fully covered with a generous amount of talc.

  • Leave overnight or at very least a few hours if you're in a rush

  • Gently brush off, trying to not rub into the fabric, the grease should have been absorbed by the talc.

  • If you've caught your slip on something and the fabric has snagged, the best solution is to very gently ease the pulled threads back by using your nail.

  • It may take a little time and won't completely reverse it but can help to reduce the severity.
