Oxy clean will get out the red wine too.

Its super easy.

Take a clean toothbrush and get it a little wet (cold water) push it into the dry oxyclean. Place a clean towel underneath the layer you are cleaningIn small circular motions “buff” the red wine stain out. Dipping your brush into the oxyclean as you need it. With another clean white towel, rub dry. Repeat until out. (if you get some blue on your dress (from the blue beads in the oxyclean) keep buffing with a clean cloth and a little water and it should come out.)

Another great product is everblum. Its alcohol based. You can get it at places like bed bath and beyond. Use this in a well ventilated room! Take a small white clean cloth or towel, put a little everblum on it, and using the same steps as for the oxyclean buff it out. (you will need another towel between the layers again).

Hope This Helps

My dress wasn’t satin but it was pretty dirty and I washed it in the bath at home.

I used a gentle wool detergent with warm water and spot cleaner on the hem to get the grass and dirt stains out. 

Worked fantastically and with no damage to the dress (and yeah, I wasn’t keen to pay $100+ either!).
