Satin is one of the most luxurious fabrics available, and it’s a favorite choice for formal dresses. The shiny, smooth fabric is woven from loosely spun silk, rayon, acetate or polyester yarns. Many of these fibers, while they give satin its distinctive look, also require special care. If you must remove a stain from a satin dress, you can’t just toss it in the washing machine and hope for the best. Rather you must take extra care to ensure that removing the stain doesn’t damage your satin garment.
Fill a sink basin with cool water, and submerge the stained area of the satin dress.
