How to Get Water Spots Out of Dress Shirts


Your favorite dress shirt has made it through many a formal luncheon and numerous important dinners unscathed. Even when you had spaghetti for dinner, your shirt still made it through without a spot. Knowing how many other things could have caused a stain makes it all the more puzzling to find that water has managed to stain your shirt. Water stains require a certain amount of creativity to eliminate. Fortunately, getting rid of these stains is easy enough if you know what to do.

Things You'll Need

  • Clean cloth
  • Iron
  • Dampen the stained area with clean water.

  • Place a dry, clean cloth on the dampened area.

  • Iron the cloth with an iron that is set to a low setting.

  • Lift the cloth to check the progress of the stain. Move the cloth to keep a dry area of the cloth over the stain as the water transfers from the shirt to the cloth.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you don't have time to iron, apply white vinegar to a clean cloth and gently wipe the stain away. When the shirt dries the stain will be gone.
