Care of Satin Garments and Linens

Satin is a luxurious fabric woven to have a glossy face and a soft, slippery texture. Originally made of silk, it is now available in acetate, rayon, cotton, nylon and polyester.

Always read the care labels and know the fiber content. Acetate and silk fiber satins should be dry cleaned. Others can be washed using warm or cool water, regular detergent and a medium cycle.

For washable satins, they can be allowed to drip-dry or dried in the dryer on medium heat. If ironing is needed, use a low setting.
