Stains on fabrics – Burnout

Burnout. These stains then appear, when any part of the fabric is burned out, e.g.. when ironing with a too hot iron or by contact with a burning stove. After burnout, yellowish spots remain on the fabric, which you can try to whiten. However, it is rarely possible to achieve the desired result in this way - most often, the burned fibers permanently damage the fabric. However, if the fibers did not burn out, you can try to get the stain out. Bleach or 10% hydrogen peroxide is used for white fabrics, and for colored fabrics - 1% dilution of this agent. Linen fabrics are moistened with warm water, they are then treated with bleach or potassium hypochlorite solution. This treatment should be done very quickly, above all, thoroughly wash the bleaching agent from the fabric. It is also desirable to expose the bleached and still damp fabric to sunlight. Woolen fabrics are moistened with a solution of citric acid, then rinses thoroughly with water. Also in this case, the effect of the treatment depends on it, that the fibers are not damaged.
