For starters, place fabric over a towel on ironing board for some solid support. Use a piece of scotch tape, press down and lift. Repeat with new scotch tape each time so you aren't putting grease back down again. See if that helps. You can run your fingernail across top of tape firmly to get embedded grease. When you've got as much as you think you can, it may be gone. If not, use a clean white washcloth (so you can see stain clearly) or scrap from white tee shirt and dip in white vinegar so cloth is damp, not dripping. Then press down on fabric and lift...repeat if it seems to be helping. You can rub gently also.

I was amazed to see a saleswoman wet a cloth with simple green cleaner and gently rub a black spot off the shoulder of a white satin gown and it easily disappeared. It looked like grease from a car. No shadow stain remained. Water will leave that shadow mark. Good luck.

I found this thread while googling how to clean satin. My darling youngest is into taking of his diaper every chance he gets. He decided to remove his soiled diaper in my closet and managed to smear some on my wedding dress.... My fault for not putting it back in its garment bag right away. I decided to try the hand washing method with a little dial anti bac hand soap (works like a dream on blood stains so why not?

) the stains came out with mild scrubbing no problem first shot. So I decided to tackle the 13 year old drag marks on the train that never got removed. Those are gone too now. I have tossed it in the washer on delicate to remove the potential for rings or water marks from just spot cleaning. We'll see how it looks after it hang dries, and I'll post my results for posterity.

You can try hair spray I've never used it on satin but I know it works on cotton. I would test it on the inside seam of the dress.

I would pretreat it with a spot remover such as shout. Ranch does contain oil in it, so it may take more than one treatment. Do not put it into the dryer until it is completely out.

Is it possible to wash satin-backed crepe in cold water with Surf? I recently found one of my bridesmaids' dresses - 32 years old! - in a wardrobe. The dress is in perfect condition, but I would like to have it clean as well.

I called Queen's Lifestyle and they told me the material is washable. I washed the dress in cold water with Surf and rinsed twice, the last time with white vinegar instead of fabric softener. The dress came out beautifully.

I would definitely take it to a dry cleaner to be cleaned. Any type of "wet" will mark the satin.

I have a beautiful blue satin dress that I wore to two proms in a row. At the second one (last night) I got a little bit of mud on the very bottom of the skirt.

Is there any way I can remove it?

Answers

Hi,

I would use the blotting method. Put some detergent in a bowl of water and mix it. Take a cloth, wet it, with the detergent solution, and blot the stain until it is gone. At this point, let the satin dry.

I found a helpful website that you might find has some ideas:

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Brush off as much mud as possible. Then mix mild detergent and water. Using the suds only, remove the remaining mud.

Satin is notorious for leaving "circles" or stains when water is applied so be very careful and only blot with a damp cloth (satin can also stretch so do not scrub or pull).

I would suggest using a detergent that specifies satin on the label (such as Woolite).

Here are a couple of links that show easy step by step instructions.

Will hairspray come out of a satin dress when dry cleaned?

Answers

August 11, 20190 found this helpful

Make it a point to tell the dry cleaner where the stain is and that it is hairspray. They will tell you what the chances are of removing the stain.

It should come out with the dry cleaning. Be sure to tell them the brand and type of spray (they will want to know at a minimum aerosol or pump as they have different ingredients) and point out the spots when you take it.

When you pick it up, check for the spot removal before you leave and if it is still there, ask if they can try anything else.

Hope it works for you! Post back with an update.

On a wedding dress? You don't. There's too big of a risk of ruining it.

You go on facebook and ask who is the best dry cleaner in your area. Take it there, and when it is done, package it properly and put it straight into your closet or cedar chest.
