How to remove a water mark on satin

Although water is recognised as a stain remover, it can actually create stains on some delicate fabrics, including satin. Water contains traces of minerals that remain on satin after it dries. These mineral deposits generally produce unsightly spots known as water marks. As with all stains, water marks become harder to clean from fabric over time. Promptly remove it from satin by using gentle techniques.

Things you need

KettleDishclothSpoon

Instructions

1 Fill a kettle with at least 237 ml (1 cup) of water. Boil the water on a hob.

2 Place a clean dishcloth over the kettle's spout to keep the boiling water droplets contained within the kettle. The goal is for steam to emit from the kettle.

3 Position the water marked portion of the satin fabric directly over the steam diffusing from the kettle's spout. Hold the water marked satin about 7.5 cm (3 inches) from the spout until the fabric becomes slightly moist. Do not wet the satin.

4 Rub the moistened, water marked portion of the satin with a spoon, working from the water mark's outer edges inward. Rubbing the moistened stain with a dull object draws it out of the satin.

5 Examine the satin for remaining traces of the water mark. If it's still visible, repeat the entire process.
