I learned something new the other day and I thought I would share it with you - I'm quite nice that way, lol.
Well I got lilies for my birthday, as you know, and I know how the pollen from them can really stain clothes etc.
I have my lilies standing in a vase on my dining room table and everytime I set the table for dinner I have to move the vase.
Well you know where this is going don't you?
Yup I managed to get the stain on not one but three items of clothing.
I know, how unlucky (or should that read careless!) can one person get.
The first time it was on one of my favourite light green cardigans - I thought oh no that is that ruined!!
So I googled how to get lily pollen stains out.
And I read that if you put the item out into the sunshine the stain will vanish.
Pah, I thought that will never work but I was willing to give it a shot.
And you know it worked. Totally removed the stain. A miracle!!!
So I thought I would show you what happened with my shirt.
I suppose I was lucky that we had a couple of sunny days. Here is the shirt pegged out in the sun after about half an hour.
The stain has reduced considerably.
And here it is washed, dried and ironed.
The stain has completely gone.
Amazing - I don't know how it works but it really does.
Thank you sun!!!
That is three tops I have recovered that I thought I woud have to throw out.
So if you get lily pollen on your clothes put them in the sunshine for half an hour and voila the stain will be gone!!!
Makes me feel a wee bit happier about buying lilies - they are beautiful flowers afterall. :))
Hope this is helpful to someone :))
