Q: Burn mark how can i remove a burnt mark on a blouse -- Reply (Ref:0945-0311)

A: Burn Mark: I'm known as someone who can fix anything, but, there are limits. If some spot is unfixable, I use iron on patches. Cut the burnt place out, cut a patch from someplace & put the patch around the hole & Viola! it's gone. Depends on the place, of course, the fabric. Can you sew it into a dart or a seam? Can you put a decorative patch on the area? See it as a challenge. Can the area be cut off & made into a shorter garment, or have shorter sleeves. Hope this gives you some imaginative ideas. b -- bobbi koch   Reply

A: Burn Stains. Light burn marks can be removed by placing a dampened cloth with vinegar over the stain. Iron with hottest setting possible for the fabric. For white cotton, cover the stain with a dampened cloth of a water/peroxide solution and press a hot iron over the cloth. -- Clara' Sep 10 2006

Q: Clothes Burned in House Fire I am trying to salvage clothes that have been burned in a house fire. There are actual singe marks on the clothes but other than that they are fine (especially blue jeans and khakis). I have washed them with detergent and white vinegar to remove the odor but I don't know what to do about the burn marks on the clothes. Any suggestions? -- Pat Edgerton Reply

A: Clothes Burned in House Fire Just saw this post on the site, so I'm not sure if this is timely or not. To get smoke smell out (or skunk smell,) I have found that the only thing that works is taking clothes, etc to a dry cleaner that has an "ozone room." They do not dry clean the clothes -- they put them in a room with these hydrocarbons (or fluorocarbons, not sure which it is) and it removes the smell. This is the only thing that worked for me when a skunk got in the basement of a rental home & sprayed. Reply    17 Feb 2004
