Indulging in the luxurious embrace of a satin robe is a daily ritual that promises comfort, style and sophistication. We understand the art of elevating this experience which ensure that your silky robe is not just a piece of clothing, but a symbol of relaxation and sophistication. Here, we draw insights from the realms of folding, tying, washing and ironing to present four essential tips to perfect your luxury satin robe experience.
1. How to Fold Your Satin Robe
To prevent wrinkles and creases in your satin robe, it’s important to know how to fold it. It will last longer because it prevents damage to the fabric and this can even create more room for storage (if storing it away for an extended period of time). Check out these five easy-to-follow steps for folding your long robe or short robe in the best way possible.
- Always make sure your satin nightgown is dry before folding. Folding when wet will damage your robe and reduce the quality of the fabric.
- Place your luxury satin robe on a bed or other flat, clean surface. Make sure the sleeves are pulled out and there are no folds in the robe. Extend it so that the robe is completely flat and smooth.
- Take the one sleeve on the left side and fold it over the other side (the right side sleeve). You’re essentially folding the robe in half. Make sure the satin robe’s belt lays neatly flat across the robe (rather than bunched up).
- After folding the robe in half lengthwise, fold the top (at the collar) down onto the robe. Your robe should now be folded from left to right and top to bottom.
- Fold your satin robe in half again, this time from bottom to top (from the end of the bathrobe to the top of the collar).
2. How to Tie Your Satin Robe
Did you know there is an easy way to tie a luxury robe to ensure it stays closed? When your satin robe is tied correctly, it’s much more secure and comfortable, enabling you to lounge and walk around freely without worrying about it falling open. In these steps, you’ll learn how to tie a satin robe in five simple steps.
- Slide your arms over the wide sleeves and make sure the belt is attached around the satin robe, specifically in the belt loops.
- While wearing the robe, take the left front panel and cross it securely over the right front panel. You can pull the left front panel as snugly as you prefer over the right.
- The satin robe has internal loops on the inside. They are usually located around the left elbow area on the left robe half and the right robe half. Make sure to secure both ties securely by knotting the left tie end with the right tie end.
- With both front panels overlapping, take the belt that is attached to your robe and tie it to the side of your satin robe. You can do so by making a simple double knot or the same way you would tie a bowtie.
- Once you have fastened the end of the robe sash, be sure to adjust the elasticity as needed so that the robe feels firm and comfortable.
3. How to Wash Your Satin Robe
The proper way to clean a long satin robe depends on the specific fabric, but these step-by-step instructions on how to wash a robe will work in most cases.
- Add about a quarter cup of mild (preferably natural) laundry detergent to an empty washing machine.
- Select a delicate cycle with cold or warm/cold water temperature and a medium spin speed.
- Remove the waistband from your robe to prevent twisting and knotting. You can feel free to throw it away with the robe, but if you have a delicates bag, that's even better.
- Add items to the load that are similar in color and fabric, such as sheets, towels or pajamas.
If your washer allows it, start the cycle before putting any fabrics inside to give the soap a chance to dissolve completely. If not, place everything in at once with the detergent at the bottom, then start the cycle.
4. How to Iron Your Satin Robe
Iron your satin robe on a CLEAN surface with a CLEAN iron. satin robe is uniquely vulnerable to staining, and any residual stain on these surfaces is likely to transfer to your fine satin robe. Cleaning an iron is relatively simple to do and well worth the effort. We recommend using an ironing board, again with a clean cover. If you wish, you can lay a clean white sheet over the cover. If you don’t use an ironing board, make sure you are using a hard, flat surface that is heat-resistant and clean.
- Iron your satin robe while it’s still a bit damp.
- Spot test the temperature of your iron in a non-noticeable location to make sure the temperature is fine.
- Pass the iron quickly across the surface of the satin robe if you are ironing satin robes with only light wrinkles.
- Less is more! Start with the lowest possible temperature and increase only as needed.
