Caring for your silk

Cleaning your silk:

Tylers Fabrics recommend the Green Earth clean for all silk fabrics in their original fabric form.  Once made into a garment, please provide the dry-cleaner you are using with a piece of all of your fabrics to test before your gown is cleaned.

Alcohol/beverages/food spills will stain your silk garment.  They must be cleaned immediately to avoid the stain setting.

General care instructions:
  • Never expose silk to direct sunlight for longer periods of time
  • Don’t spray silk with water while ironing
  • Don’t treat individual stains with water
  • Always iron the reverse side or using a pressing cloth on a cool iron setting (“Silk” setting on the iron)
  • Never bleach silk
  • Never wring dry
  • Substances containing alcohol will damage silk fabric. So let your perfume and hairspray dry before dressing
