Removing Soot

March 24, 2021

I Have a light pinkish hoodie that I dropped on a kerosene heater, which was off thank gosh, but it has soot on the top. So now there is soot on the top of my hoodie, is there a way to get it out?

Here are some recommendations:
Remove soot as much as possible first by shaking it off outdoors, run water over the clothing wrong side out, so the water flushes the soot out of the clothing, pre-treat w/ laundry stain remover,
then launder your clothing.

This is a recommendation from Tide:

Wash your hoodie in Lestoil. It is recommended for mechanics and other people who get their clothing very dirty and greasy.

First gently shake out of clothing any excess soot.
Then wash as recommended on the care label using heavy-duty detergent (Persil or Tide), follow the directions on the packaging. Use the temperature recommended on the label.
Check if stains are removed before drying. If stains remain, repeat the washing.

Hopefully you have had success with one of the suggestion.
It's always a good idea to also post what type of material the stained item happens to be as this gives us a better idea of what type of product may work best.
If your hoodie is all cotton you should be able to remove soot or other stains with just a few extra steps.
Shake off/dust off any loose soot first.
Rinse with clear water and add any one of your regular laundry detergent or Dawn dish soap to the spot and let soak for 5-20 minutes.
Wash in regular medium hot - hot water and check to see if stain is gone. let it dry naturally just to make sure the stain is gone.
Launder again and dry if all stains are gone.

Some people use white vinegar/water soak and sometimes it works. Mix three parts warm water to one part vinegar.

Also, baking soda can be used:
1 cup baking soda to water to cover garment. Mix and place garment to soak for 30 minutes.
Wash as usual.

If it is cotton or a cotton blend (usually nothing works well on 100% poly or rayon) you can try mixing 2 cups COLD water, 1 cup hydrogen peroxide, one cup baking soda in a large bucket. Add a big dash of a blue dawn liquid dish soap and swish it all around, then let the jacket soak (stain side to the liquid) in it for 15 minutes. Remove, rinse in cold water and re-soak if the stain is not completely out.

If it is is not out by the second time, you can try mixing that same combination with Dawn AND a regular Tide liquid (a tablespoon) and let it soak again.

Do not use hot water as it will set the stain. Do not dry in the dryer until the stain is completely gone.

Sometimes drying it in the sun will help lighten it.

Once the stain is gone, wash normally.
