How To Remove Oil Stains From Silk Saree

We all know owning silk clothes can be pricey, but that is one of the luxuries you get when you buy a silk saree! However, even this cool fabric needs an occasional cleaning to remove stains and maintain its beauty. On Tuesday, Arte India welcomed certified brown soap maker Harika Chandra with a demonstration on how to clean your silk saree.

What is Silk?

Silk is fully resistant to lint, dander and dirt. It is fairly easy to clean with soap and water or a natural cleaner. For other stain removal options, try CLR, Oxi-Clean Part A or B with white vinegar, dishwasher soap and acetic acid (vinegar plus granulated salt). To prevent the oil stains from setting in on silk, blot it dry after each cleaning with a towel.

How to Remove Oil Stains From Silk

How To Prevent Oil Stains from Occuring in the Future
