Fabric Care: Remove Oil Stain From Silk Velvet
What will you need?
- Non-alkaline, oil-free shampoo
- Soft white cloths
How to remove oil stain on silk velvet fabric
1. Dab a small amount of shampoo to the oil stain. Work on a small area at first. Work from the outside of the stain toward the center to help keep the stain from spreading.
2. Rinse away the stain, either by dabbing water onto it with a clean cloth or dipping the stained spot into a container of cool water. Use just enough water to remove the shampoo — and the stain.
3. Dab the moistened area with a dry cloth. If possible, place the stained spot between two dry cloths and press gently to absorb water from the stained area. Remove the cloth and allow the spot to air-dry completely.
Tips & Warnings
Apply a dab of the non-alkaline shampoo to an interior seam of the garment and dab with a white cloth to test for colorfastness. If you notice any color transfer, do not try to spot-clean the item. Instead, take the garment to a professional cleaner.
