Wearing a silk shirt feels nice and luxurious; seeing your dry cleaning bill after cleaning said shirt doesn't feel so nice. You might or might not have cringed at the price of the shirt in the first place, but had you realized how much extra it would cost in dry cleaning, the price would be enough to make you pass out. Luckily for all thrifty wallet-watchers, it is possible to wash a silk shirt at home for a fraction of the cleaner's price. When it comes to drying, avoid your standard dryer and do the job in the way that silk deserves.
