Place an absorbent fabric underneath the satin fabric to be cleaned. It will help absorb the stain once it breaks up.
Apply club soda if water alone does not do the job. Blot it into the stain with a clean sponge. Give it one to three minutes to work before blotting the soda water away with plain, room temperature distilled water.
Use the Dryel spot remover to treat satin that can be exposed to medium heat. This will give the extra boost that some stains need in order to break away from satin fabric.
Put the satin into the Dryel bag provided. Add a Dryel cloth as well. Close and secure the bag.
Place the bag in the dryer. Set to medium cycle and turn on for one-half hour.
Remove the satin from the bag and fold or hang it as desired. This will help avoid excess wrinkling.
It takes special care to iron satin. Use a warm iron and absolutely no steam. Always press satin on the wrong side of the fabric and keep a pressing cloth between the iron and the fabric. A thin piece of white cotton such as a handkerchief works well as a pressing cloth. Applying a hot iron directly to satin fabric can leave behind an impression of the iron's plate and can damage the fabric.
Set-in stains are more difficult to remove so clean as quickly as possible. While some people choose to wash delicate satin fabrics in the delicate cycle of a washing machine, the fabric will retain its beauty longer and sustain less damaged if it is washed by hand.
Do not use too much detergent when washing satin or it will be difficult to rinse clean. Do not use hot water to clean satin. It will cause the fabric to shrink. Do not dry satin fabric of any type in a hot dryer. It may scorch or shrink the fabric. Do not use bleach on satin fabrics of any kind. Avoid sun exposure with delicate satins like those made from silk or nylon. The sun's rays will break down the fabric and could cause permanent damage.
