Silk represents a wonderful and very soft textile material. It is silky and delicate and requires special care. If you have a stain on your silk dress or your tie, you will need to be careful about how you go about cleaning it. To help you, here are some tips for getting a stain off the silk.
Talc against oil stains
If you have stained your silk with a fatty substance or some oil, pour a little talc on the stain. Then put several sheets of absorbent paper on the talc and pass over a slightly hot iron. For the remaining stains, just use a little turpentine.
Use a mixture of water and alcohol at 70 degrees to remove stains left on the silk.
To remove a stain of red wine
If you accidentally spilled red wine on your silk, simply dab the excess with a damp paper towel. Then rub lightly with a wet cloth.
To remove a stain of white wine
Soak the extra white wine with a tissue quickly. Then clean the rest of the wine stain on the silk with a damp cloth.
A stain of carbonated drink
To remove a soft drink stain from the silk, use a little glycerin. Then rinse.
A coffee stain
Alcohol at 90 degrees will be perfect for removing a coffee stain from silk. Remember to rinse well afterward.
A tea stain on a silk dress
If it is rather a tea stain, also use alcohol at 90 degrees, but this time mixing it with vinegar and water. Then rinse. Be careful. Whether it is a stain on a silk dress or a tie, you must be careful not to damage the silk and, therefore, your dress, scarf, or tie.
A tomato stain
If you have just dropped tomatoes on your silk, simply dab the stain with a little milk.
To clean your silk, soak it in a bowl of warm water with a small drop of liquid dish soap.
