How to remove orange pollen stains from curtains

June 4, 2014 Filed under Stain removal

Wendy has asked “How can I remove orange lily stains off cream curtains please”

I’ve checked this out with a florist and been told that the orange stain is in fact pollen and you shouldn’t rub it or wet it. If you put the sticky side of sellotape over the stain, the pollen will lift off when you take the tape away. repeat as necessary.

Alternatively you can leave the stain till it’s dry then brush it with a pipe cleaner or some polystyrene, then put the curtains in the sun.
