Satin sheets need a little extra attention to keep them in good shape. This article discusses a very easy method for washing them. This is suitable for acetate or silk satin sheets.
- Fill your washing machine with tepid water. This is kindest on satin. Find a gentle fabric wash; again, this is kinder on satin.
- Do not use the spin option of your washing machine. Instead, hang-wring the sheets. Satin is very fragile and can tear easily. When hand-wringing, put the sheets into a towel to help absorb the moisture and roll this around gently to wring the moisture ou.
- Hang the sheets out to dry. Do not dry in direct sunlight. Instead, find a suitable hanging item such as a clothes horse or a stair bannister to hang the sheets over. If you have nowhere to hang the sheets, use the lowest possible setting of the clothes dryer
