Even though silk is stronger than steel pound for pound, it is at the same time an incredibly delicate and fragile natural fibre. As silk is produced in a multitude of weaves and dyes, it is best left to a professional dry cleaner to treat your silk garment/fabric.

Washing can be an option for some garments but may cause extreme colour loss and wrinkling. Perspiration, perfume and sun fading are a few problems that may adversely affect the silk. Never wipe a stain or rinse with water for this could cause permanent damage to the garment. Silk requires extra care to help retain its full beauty.

We at Aron Specialist Dry Cleaners can return a silk garment to a “like new” appearance, with a procedure called “mineral bath”. There is a degree of colour loss in all silk so we ensure that we clean all pieces of an outfit to maintain unity.
