  1. Hand wash the garment

    Fill a clean basin or sink with cool water, and add a few drops of baby shampoo or a mild soap. Don't use detergents since they damage silk. Add the clothing, and gently agitate the water using your fingers. Allow the garment to soak from three to no more than five minutes.

  2. Rinse the garment

    Fill the sink or basin with very cold water, and add a tablespoon of white distilled vinegar to break down the remaining soap to prevent it from breaking down the silk. Submerge the garment in the water until it rinses clean, and remove it promptly.

  3. Blot the excess moisture with a clean towel

    Don't wring or twist silk to avoid damaging it. Lay it on a clean towel, and smooth out any wrinkles. Roll the towel from the bottom up, and apply gentle pressure as you roll to squeeze the water from your garment. Lay the underwear flat on a drying rack, or hang it up to dry.
