Face cream, body oil, sweat, hair treatments:
Grab your Wash & Stain Bar and Stain Brush for these greasy marks! First, run the bar under warm water and work up a lather using the Stain Brush. The soft fibers in the brush are gentle enough to use on silk, and really help to coax out oily discoloration. Using the brush, massage the lather into the stained area using circular motions before washing.
Hair dye, self-tanner, makeup, pet accidents, blood*, coffee, wine:
If that at-home hair dye job bled a little onto your silk pillowcase, reach for Stain Solution instead! This concentrated liquid targets color-rich protein and tannin based stains like food and dye with ease. Pour a drop or two over the stains, and work in using your fingers or the Stain Brush. For older, set-in stains, pretreat with Stain Solution, then let soak for 10 minutes in cool water. After soaking, apply a little more Stain Solution and massage with the Stain Brush and promptly launder.
Pro Tip: While All-Purpose Bleach Alternative is a superstar for brightening everyday fabrics like cotton and linen, it should never be used on silk or wool fabrics. Regular pretreatments using the Stain Solution and Wash & Stain Bar will help to reduce yellowing and stains on these natural fibers.
*Always soak and wash blood stains with cool water until completely removed.
