How To Wash & Clean Satin: A Guide
Wash according to the instructions below unless the fabric content/care label specifies "viscose" and "dry clean." If the composition is rayon or you are unsure, perform a water test.
Treat stains on your lyocell shirts, sheets, leggings, and other clothing with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and cuffs.
Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing satin.
Add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Wash to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water.
Submerge the item and gently agitate the water with your hands to evenly distribute soap. Soak for up to 30 minutes.
Rinse well by running cool water through the item until the water is no longer soapy.
Do not wring. Instead, press the water out of the item.
Dry & Finish
Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry. Do not put it in the dryer!
Most delicate items will be wrinkled after laundering. We recommend steaming for the best and safest finish.
If ironing, use the lowest temperature setting and iron on the wrong side of the fabric (with the garment inside out). A pressing cloth between the iron and item will be safest.
To freshen items between wearings, spritz with Delicate Spray.
Satin items such as a skirt or dress can be hung on a hanger; however, be mindful of clips because they can leave marks on the material.
Always store items clean.
We recommend storing in a breathable cotton Hanging Storage Bag to protect items from bugs.
Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.
All techniques are based on textile science. Not all garments perform and react as science would predict.
