Hi, I'm Bruce Gershon with Arrow Fabricare. And today, we're going to talk about stain removal for linen and silk blend. Linen in a flax fiber blended with a natural animal fiber, silk. Both fabrics are washable, which is good -delicate hand washing generally, you could even machine wash on a delicate cycle. One thing about this blend is that you can never use chlorine bleach, as it will burn the silk fiber and yellow it. So, what we recommend for stain removal on this type of blend would be hydrogen peroxide. Does not need to be strong - a three percent hydrogen peroxide would be recommended, six percent would be, like, for a hair product. But, I would dilute that a little bit, and it takes some time for it to work. In this case, there's a little stain on this collar. And, I've got a little hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle, and I'm just going to spray a little of the hydrogen peroxide on the stain and let it sit. It takes time to work, but it is very effective. And, that might need to be reapplied a couple of times, but it is very effective on perspiration stains, blood, some dye, even mustard. And, after you're, you know, finished applying it, letting it dry, hydrogen peroxide is neutral, so just rinsing it out with clear water is all you need to do. And, generally you'll take care of most stains that way. And, that's all I've got. I'm Bruce Gershon. Thanks for watching.
