Removing stains from silk can be a nightmare due to the extremely fine nature of the fabric. Coffee stains are particularly difficult to remove. To remove stains without damaging the fabric, you need professional dry cleaning unless it is fresh coffee stains. However, if you deal with the coffee stains immediately, you may effectively remove it.
- Flip silk fabric over quickly, and then gently shake as much of the spilled coffee off the surface of the silk. Not rub or spill coffee into other parts of the silk garment.
- Use soaked a clean sponge or cloth with cold water to gently dip coffee stains until it begins to lift.
- If the stain still remains, you can mix a portion of water with one serving of vinegar, and dip a cloth (or sponge) into this mixture and use it to gently pat the stain. Repeat this step until the stain lifts.
- If the above solutions cannot work, you can apply a small amount of the vinegar on the stain to soak if for a few minutes. Next, place an absorbent pad or thick paper towel in the vinegar solution and press down until the moisture has been completely absorbed. Note: This solution only works when fresh stains are particularly resilient.
- To remove old coffee stains or remove it from set, you had better ask dry cleaner for help and tell them that the stain is from coffee.
- Do not wash in a washing machine or dry in a dryer.
