After using the quilt cover for a long period of time, the cover may become damp. When this happens it is okay to dry it out in the sun for a short period of time and dust it off.
However, the quilt cover should not be out in the summer sun. Mulberry silk is like hair; it can easily become damaged and brittle under strong ultraviolet light. Additionally, silk should never be machine washed. Silk itself has anti-mite and anti-bacterial capabilities. Before storing a silk quilt, it only needs to be dried, cooled, and sealed, no washing is necessary.
(Silk will harden after coming into contact with water, and it will lose its thermal retention capabilities as well as its fluffiness; silk itself does not attract dust and is very clean). If the silk quilt accidently becomes dirty, please use a neutral detergent (such as shampoo, specialized wool detergent, etc.) to clean only the spot that is dirty, and then allow the silk to dry.
When we were young, we were scolded by our mother every time we played crazily on our beds: Don’t jump on the quilts!
During the winter, homebodies like to wrap their bodies in the quilts while surfing the web, this puts a toll on the quilt and often leads to damage.
No fabrics or fibers can withstand the fierce sun for too long, especially during the hot summer. Too much exposure to the sun will cause the silk fibers to become damaged and break more easily.
This is especially important in southern areas with high humidity. After drying out, pat the silk quilt down and you will find it to be fluffier.
Wait until the silk quilt cools off and then put it in a plastic bag. There is no need to add any anti-mite products such as mothballs. The silk quilt should be stored in a cool, dry place. Also, when storing, please avoid putting too much weight on the silk quilt as it may lead to damage (Note: The silk quilt must be dried before storage, otherwise the moisture will lead to a decrease in the quality of the silk).
