For all those housewives who ironed and burn the clothes (well, accidents may happen), this article will help you a lot, like it did to me. I burned my husband’s pants, and I panic, because it was his favorite pair. And with the below tricks I managed to restore its pants.
There is only one condition: the burnt shouldn’t be deep into the fabric!
But if the burn is shallow, there are chances. Generally, clothes from natural materials such as flax, wool or cotton can be saved unless the material hasn’t been destroyed in depth.
The solution for white burnt clothes
If the burnt clothes are made of cotton or white flax, dab the burnt area with a piece of gauze soaked in hydrogen peroxide. Then use another piece of clean gauze, soaked in ammonia solution, to dab the stain. Don’t let these 2 solutions to dry. After a few minutes, while the fabric is still wet, rinse thoroughly with water at room temperature.
Repeat the procedure until all traces of burns disappear. The method is effective and safe for materials that contain synthetic fibers, but can’t be used for wool or silk clothes.
How to save colored clothes
If you burned a colored clothing item, ammonia can’t be used. Prepare, however, a solution made from 1 part white vinegar and 2 parts water, soak the burnt area in this solution, and then soak the whole clothing item in a water solution with active oxygen bleach that won’t affect the color. Finally, wash your coat regularly and the stain will disappear.
Burnt wool clothes
If you burned a wool or cashmere sweater, gently rub the stain with a rough cloth brush to remove the carbonized wires from the surface. Then use a laundry detergent to soften the burned area and wash the clothing item.
