Here’s how to fix iron marks!
When you happen to stain your clothes with iron, the most important thing is without a doubt to act rapidly. All right, but how? There are three methods to eliminate every trace: choose your favorite.
- The first consists of creating a mixture of hot water and pH-balanced soap, soaking a clean sponge in the mixture, and rubbing it onto the compromised area, using light pressure. Let it dry completely. Now take a cotton tea towel soaked in vinegar and spread it on the stain as well. It will completely vanish without leaving a trace!
- Try this alternative route: sprinkle the burned area with salt, then dampen a cloth in the juice of half a lemon and scrub energetically. Let this natural remedy sit for a good half-hour: the stain will be reduced and you can remove it easily.
- Finally, a great classic: soaking! Immerse the piece of clothing in cold water for one day and one night. When 24 hours have gone by, dab a cotton swab soaked in hydrogen peroxide on the burned area and continue with traditional washing.
With few readily-available natural ingredients and simple steps, there won’t be a single trace of these disasters. Enjoy your work!
