You probably buffed a shiny spot on the satin finish. Generally, the higher the gloss the more washable the surface will be. So no, satin is probably not your most washable finish.

While satin enamel might not be as washable as a semi-gloss or gloss - it should still be washable..... that said, when it doesn't clean up well, you can touch it up with paint. The painter did leave you some leftover paint, right?
