Stain Buster — Iron Scorch Marks (Light)



Using an eye dropper, apply hydrogen peroxide to the stain. Add a drop or two of ammonia. Leave for several minutes up to an hour. Don't let the stain dry. Keep it moist with hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. Rinse with water then wash, adding hydrogen peroxide if safe for the fabric.


Quick scorch tricks

If you scorch an item while ironing it, there are two fast and easy ways to repair the damage. The trick is to do one of them immediately.

A) If you have time, rub liquid laundry detergent into the scorch mark and launder the item right away, using liquid laundry detergent and hydrogen peroxode if safe for the fabric.

B) If you need to wear or use the item immediately and the scorch marks are slight, lightly rub white distilled vinegar on the fabric. Wipe with a clean cloth.

Heavily scorched fabrics where the fibres are burned and damaged can't be returned to their original state, and neither can melted or shiny areas.
