Ask the Laundress
My husband's beautiful Tom Ford suit pants got red wine spilled all over it tonight. It's 100% wool, with 50% rayon and 50% silk lining. Should I follow your wool washing instruction and treat the stain with Stain Solution and wash with Wool & Cashmere Shampoo? What if the stain does not come out after many hours of soaking? Will that ruined the pants?
You can pretreat the wine stain with our Stain Solution, applying directly to the affected area. Next, make a bath with cool/tepid water and allow the pants to soak for 30 minutes. You may need to repeat the pretreating and soaking process, soaking in increments of 30 minutes due to the silk lining.
Once the stain has been removed to your liking, you can then launder in the machine on a delicate/woolen cycle using cold water only with our Wool & Cashmere Shampoo. We recommend using a Mesh Bag for extra protection. Make certain to remove the pants promptly from the wash to reduce creasing. Do not use the dryer, rather lay the pants flat to dry and steam while damp.
