How to Remove Scorch Marks on Wool Fabric


An ugly scorch mark on wool fabric may make you think you're going to have to throw the garment in the trash. However, if you act immediately, there are things you can do to reduce the appearance of the scorch mark, or make it completely disappear.

Things You'll Need

  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Clean cloth
  • Iron
  • White vinegar
  • Liquid laundry detergent


  • Pour a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide onto a dry, white cloth.

  • Place the peroxide cloth on top of the scorch mark, and use it as an ironing cloth. On a low setting, iron over the cloth and the scorch mark.

  • Repeat as many times as necessary until the scorch mark is gone.

White Vinegar

  • Soak a cloth with white distilled vinegar.

  • Rub at the scorch mark with the vinegar-soaked cloth.

  • Alternate the vinegar cloth with a cloth that has only water on it. Continue until the scorch mark is gone.
