Satin has a soft smooth feel that makes it an appealing fabric. It ranges in durability as well as cleaning options. Always check the care instructions found on the inside tag to determine the right cleaning process for your item.
Wash: Satin items should be washed by hand or on the delicate cycle of your washer Use cold water along with a gentle detergent, like Woolite. When hand washing, let the item soak in lukewarm water for about 3 to 5 minutes. Gently squeeze the suds through the clothing and rinse thoroughly with cool or cold water. Do not wring or twist your satin clothing, as it will cause it to loose its shape.
Dry: Avoid placing satin items in a dryer. Instead, lay the item flat on a clean, dry towel, and roll the towel, jellyroll style, and apply pressure to squeeze out excess water. Unroll, remove the garment and lay flat on another clean, dry towel to finish air-drying, away from sun or excess heat.
– Never wash satin items in hot water. Hot water washing may shrink your satin items as much as 10% to 20% in size.
– Satin items could be ironed on a medium/light setting, with no steam. Iron the items inside out with quick strokes, never allowing the iron to linger too long on any one spot.
