Washing Silk

Hi Andy, I have a new knit silk top and it stinks! I tried washing it which just seems to have made it worse. I have Fabreezed it, aired it, and perfumed it to no avail. This is not the first silk garment I have had this problem with, and yes, I’m pretty sure it’s a problem with the silk, not the store or me. 😉 What can I do? I love the top and would like to keep it and wear it without grossing out anyone I’m standing next to. Do you have any expert advice? Yours truly, Alison

Alison: My “expert” advice is to return the top and focus your time and energy on purchasing a new one. The odor will always be there. Happy Shopping and Good Luck, Andy
