How to clean your silk scrunchies

Silk scrunchies have become a popular hair accessory in recent times. They are gentle on the hair and scalp, and are perfect for wearing overnight to avoid damaging your hair. However, like any other hair accessory, they can become dirty and require proper cleaning and care. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to clean and care for your silk scrunchies to keep them in great condition.

  1. Determine the type of stain Before you start cleaning your silk scrunchies, you need to determine the type of stain. If the stain is oil-based, such as from hair products or makeup, you’ll need to use a different cleaning method than if it’s a water-based stain, such as from sweat.

  2. Hand washing The best way to clean silk scrunchies is by hand washing them in cool water. You can use a gentle, pH-neutral detergent, or even a mixture of warm water and white vinegar. Soak the scrunchies in the solution for 10-15 minutes, and then gently rub the stain with your fingers to remove it.

  3. Machine washing If hand washing is not an option, you can also machine wash your silk scrunchies. Use a delicate cycle and cold water, and add a small amount of gentle, pH-neutral detergent. Avoid using the spin cycle, as this can cause the silk to wrinkle and lose its shape.

  4. Drying After washing, gently squeeze out any excess water from your silk scrunchies, but do not wring or twist them. Hang them to air dry, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Avoid using a dryer, as the high heat can damage the silk fibers and cause shrinkage.

  5. Storing When not in use, store your silk scrunchies in a cool, dry place. Avoid stacking them on top of each other, as this can cause them to become wrinkled. Instead, store them flat or hang them on a hook.

  6. Avoiding damage To keep your silk scrunchies in great condition, avoid exposing them to harsh chemicals, such as hair dyes or bleach. Also, avoid wearing them in areas where they may come into contact with rough surfaces, such as when working out at the gym.

In conclusion, silk scrunchies are a delicate and beautiful hair accessory, and proper care will ensure that they remain in great condition for years to come. By following the tips outlined above, you’ll be able to keep your silk scrunchies looking as good as new.
