Fat stains – how to remove them?

Posted: December 31st, 2012 | Author: | Stains

Fat stains are easily removed from linen and cotton materials. Just wash it in hot water with a detergent. But be careful, because the linen can shrink if the water is too hot.

If a fat stain appeared on silk or wool, use talcum powder or potato flour if you don’t have one. After applying the powder or the flour, cover the stain with a paper tissue (it can be a tissue or a paper towel) and place a warm iron on it for a while. After a few minutes the stain can be cleaned with a dry brush.


You can also use a paste made of petrol and magnesia. It should be applied for a few minutes before brushing.
