When transporting and short-term storing Mikado satin fabric, keep it in a garment bag. For long gowns that are too long to hang without crumpling, lay them as flat as possible within the garment bag to minimize wrinkling or losing shape.
For long-term storage, don’t use plastic bags or vacuum-sealed plastic containers. This can result in yellowing and mildew from trapped moisture. Instead, find a professional cleaning and preservation service for your Mikado satin dress. Over long periods of time, store your gown in a spot with regulated humidity and temperature. Minimize sun exposure so the fabric doesn’t discolor.
On a wedding day or a formal occasion, use all hair spray, perfume, makeup, and other cosmetics before carefully putting on the Mikado satin dress. If you must touch up, cover the fabric with a towel to rule out accidental stains. Try not to let the hem or train of a Mikado satin gown touch asphalt or pavement, since it damages fabric fibers and tar will leave permanent stains.
Use the recommended methods to spot-treat any stains:
When preparing your garments, you might wonder: Can you steam Mikado fabric?
Mikado can only handle medium heat, so you should steam with caution, and only steam a Mikado satin wedding dress when absolutely necessary. Use a medium heat setting and place a white sheet between the fabric and the iron for protection. Instead of pressing, ironing, or using a steamer, you can steam your Mikado silk garment less directly by simply hanging it in a steamy bathroom with hot water running.
