Stain Buster — Pollen

pollen

Fabric

Gently shake the garment to remove as much pollen as you can. Use the sticky side of a piece of tape to carefully lift off the remaining particles, or vacuum lightly to pull particles out of the fabric. Avoid rubbing particles in. Pretreat with a prewash stain remover and wash, adding bleach if safe for the fabric.

 

Upholstery

Vacuum off the pollen particles. Use the sticky side of a piece of tape to carefully lift off the remaining particles. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with a proprietary dry-cleaning solvent and blot until the solvent is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears.

 

Carpet

Vacuum off the pollen particles. Use the sticky side of a piece of tape to carefully lift off the remaining particles. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with a proprietary dry-cleaning solvent and blot until the solvent is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears.

 

Brushing pollen

Don't use your hand to brush off the pollen. You run the risk of rubbing the pollen into the fabric or the carpet fibres rather than brushing it off. In addition, the oils from your skin may set the stain.

 

Worth a try

If some pollen still remains, place the item in direct sunlight for a few hours, which may get rid of the stain.
