As gorgeous as they are, flowers can leave a seriously tough stain to remove on your child’s clothes. Pollen stains can surely leave a mark on your sleeve and all over your toddler. Pollen that has been rubbed into the fabric is truly very difficult to remove. Hence, there are ways on how to remove pollen stains. By following these easy steps, you can take out the stains on your clothes.
- Shake out the pollen. Shake the stained garment outdoors. Make sure you shake out much of the pollen as possible off your garment. If the pollen has already been rubbed onto the garment, put a sticky tape on the surface of the stain. Then, gently lift the tape. Male sure the pollen comes up with the tape.
- Rinse with cold water. Once you have removed the pollen, rinse the stained area with cold water from the back of the stain.
- Try soaking. If the stain persists, soak the garment in cold water for about 30 minutes.
- 4. Rinse. Make sure that you rinse the garment thoroughly.
- 5. Repeat the previous stains. Rinse and soak the garment until the pollen stain is gone or no longer visible.
- 6. Apply stain remover. Apply a stain remover formula (could be in the form of stick, spray or gel) on the stained garment. Then, wash it in the hottest water that the fabric can take.
- 7. Hang your garment to dry. Drying stained clothes in the dryer might make the stains permanent. Make sure that you dry your stained clothes outdoors in the clothes line. The heat of the sun is also an effective natural stain remover.
As for special fabrics such as wool, silk, and others, make sure you read the washing instructions on the clothes’ tag. If the tag says it requires professional cleaning, send your child’s clothing to the nearest cleaners right away.
