View Full Version : Getting pollen out of dry clean only fabrics

Feb. 24, 2013, 01:25 PM
What the title says... Head of a lily fell onto a white polyester mix duvet this morning. Stamens stained cloth in a swatch about the size of my hand. This isn't a cover- it's a whole darn blanket, so taking it in for dry cleaning (as instructed on label) is a bit of a task and I haven't found a dry cleaner yet who will do this for under $40. Other than dry cleaning... any suggestions to get the spot up?

Dryel makes a stain pen that's safe for dry-clean-only fabrics. Might be worth a try. It's the last item on this page: http://dryel.com/dryel-products/

FWIW, I often wash dry clean only fabrics in cold water, on delicate, with Woolite and hang (or lie flat) to dry. I don't think I've ever ruined anything.

Might still not be able to shove it in a washing machine, but it could be an option if you can.

I remember reading a hint about lily pollen in a magazine--I'd google it. Maybe sticky tape? Something like that. Remember that the pollen is actually granules.
