Removing Pollen

How to:

  1. Never rub or brush away pollen with your hand or a cloth. This will push it deeper into the fibers
  2. Take the garment outside and shake off all the pollen you can
  3. Using a piece of sticky tape pick up any remaining pollen grains.
  4. As soon as possible, fill a deep sink or plastic tub wih a solution of cold water and oxygen-based bleach, such as OxiClean
  5. Follow the package directions for mixing one gallon of solution
  6. Submerge the garment in the solution and let soak 4 hours or overnight
  7. If the stain remains, repeat with a fresh oxygen bleach solution
  8. Once you see no traces of the pollen stain launder as usual
  9. Allow to air dry to be sure the stain is gone
