What do you use to wash a silk pillowcase?

I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find a silk cleaner. Is woolwash delicates ok?

I had a silk pillowcase it got very thin and then ripped. I was using normal washing powder but a delicate wash and cycle should be ok. I personally would hand wash my next one

Google it

 I did google. And every answer was a product not available in Australia. Or it says use a silk cleaner...I need to know what cleaner.
