Important Tips on How to Take Care of Satin
- Make sure to wash from one-color satin clothes and avoid putting different colours together.
- When you want to get rid of a stain on a piece of satin, use shampoo and water and wash it gently to remove it completely, and avoid washing the stain only. Wash the whole piece of clothing so that the stain doesn’t increase in size.
- Make sure to spread the piece of clothing made of satin when drying, to facilitate the ironing process.
- It’s preferable to use a piece of soft cotton cloth when ironing satin clothes by placing it on the satin fabric to avoid burning the satin as a result of being exposed to the heat of the iron directly.
