Satin is a smooth woven fabric with a glossy top and a dull lining. The gloss or shine of the fabric is created through a special weaving pattern. Garments made from satin can become soiled or stained just like any other fabric, but satin fabrics require specialized care when trying to remove stains. Perspiration stains are common and can usually be removed from satin garments with just a few minor steps.
Check the care label attached to the garment to see if it is made from silk satin, acetate satin or crepe satin. If none of these materials are listed on the label, then it is safe to presume that the satin garment must be dry cleaned only to remove the perspiration stains.
Fill a bucket or sink with ice-cold water. Add a couple of tablespoons of a mild laundry detergent made specifically for delicates.
Dunk the satin garment into the cold water repeatedly, until the stains are removed. Rinse the garment in clean cold water twice. Hang the satin garment on a satin or plastic clothes hanger and let it air-dry.
