Oily Stain on Silk

I stained a silk dress with what looks like grease or some type of oily stain. I took it to the cleaners, but it came back the same. Is there anything I can do to remove this? Thank you,

It may be set in, but what I use for spot treatments like that is Basic H by Shaklee listed under Home Care: And it is organic, with enzymes that penetrate under oils and dirt. You may want to try it full strength in a hidden area to test. A little of it goes a long way! In fact, you can wash dedicates in a basin with 1 teaspoon. (06/08/2006)

Oily Stain on Silk

I have had great luck with K2R spot remover, which is a combination of solvent and powder, which you can use just on the spot until you have gotten rid of it. Sounds like the cleaner didn't bother to spot your stain, but just ran it through. In the future, spot greasy stains like that immediately with some sort of absorbent - corn silk powder, baby powder, talc, or even face powder on the stain to absorb as much grease as possible.


I hope it hasn't been set by the cleaning, but silk is actually quite sturdy. And most of the time, contrary to labels, can be hand washed. (06/08/2006)
