The shiny marks left on polyester clothing by a too hot iron are quite likely scorched or melted synthetic fibers. This is a guide about removing shiny iron marks on polyester clothing.

How do you remove hot iron marks from polyester?

Sorry but there is no way to remove a burn mark no matter what type of fabric. :-(
I accidently used an iron that was too hot on my polester black pants while pressing the hem. Now I have an area that is shiney on that area of the pants. Is there any help for this or is the fabric simply melted? Any ideas would be appreciated.

I read this somewhere that if you spray the area pretty heavily with white vinegar and then lay over that a damp cloth. Next barely set your iron down on the cloth until there is a little steam coming from the cloth. Iron should be set according to the fabric. Do this for just a few seconds. The shiny area will be gone. Hope this helps.
I bought a polyester t-shirt and by mistake ironed it, now there is a shiny patch on it. Please suggest a way how to remove that patch.
