Cleaning Satin

My friend is having her vows renewed after 25 years. When she was engaged, she bought some yards of satin to make her gown. She and her husband eloped without having the gown made. She wants to have it made for the renewal. The satin has yellowed a bit (which is fine with her), but there are marks along the creases from being stored folded. We can't cut the pattern around them. Any suggestions without ruining the fabric?


Thank you,
Lee from Canada

I found on this page a product called:

Ensure® Laundering Agent

From Mountain Mist® (16 oz.)

Our price 10% off: $4.75

regularly $5.22

"Specially formulated for quilts, linens, quilt tops, wedding gowns, and antique linens that have been yellowed and/or brown from long term storage caused by the oils in wood after being stored in cedar chests, linen closets and dresser drawers"

It is made for heirloom quilts and it speaks directly about wedding gowns and such. Check it out it may be an option as you cannot use the fabric the way it is now. If you go with it, let us know how it works.

I copied the above from their web page.

Good Luck!! Laura
