Can I wash a satin pillowcase in hot water?

I'm thinking of getting a satin pillowcase. It looks as though the official advice may be to wash it in cold water--at least I've seen this for some of them. Many others just say "machine washable" in the description, so I don't know what temperature is advised for them.

The idea of washing bedding in cold water grosses me out. Does anyone use hot? I don't really care if it wrinkles & I don't mind skipping the dryer--it's just a cold-water wash that I object to.

Also, the prices vary so much--any advice on whether I need to pay more, or can an inexpensive one do the trick?

Thanks.
My properties
Fine, normal porosity, normal elasticity

Leave-in Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut; looking for a replacement for the no-longer-CG Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition
Gel Looking for a replacement for the discontinued LAL blue gel. Also thinking I need a low- or no-humectant gel for high-dew days, but haven't figured that one out.

    I use a 30 degree wash on my silk pillowcase (so warm water) and works well! HTH!

    I use a warm water wash on mine and have never had any issues.

    I bought mine at Sallys beauty, it was a cheaper one (under $10) but it has held up for a year now with no problems at all.

    Thanks--good to know! Now I just need to go out & get one. I'm really hoping to get 2nd-day hair & hoping it will help.
