Being fashionable may be your style statement but you need to care for those items too that makes you look fashionable. Take for example if you have a stylish silk scarf then you must know how to take care of it so that it lasts long. For keeping silk items safe for long you should know a few techniques. To begin with, silk items need hand wash and nothing else. If you try scrubbing or any other technique then there is a chance that the silk may tear from the middle. The fibers of silk are very tender and therefore needs hand care. Secondly you should not iron your silk clothes or any silk item. Chances are that the silk may burn with a slight increase of temperature. If your silk item is exotic and cannot be hand washed always go for dry cleaning. This will keep the silk in good touch.
