How to Remove Butter Stains


Felt

Follow these steps to remove butter stains from felt:

  • Scrape to remove excess, without forcing any butter further into the fibers.
  • Dust the stain with an absorbent: corn­meal (for light colors) or fullers earth (for dark colors).
  • Allow plenty of time for the grease to be absorbed.
  • Gently brush (the method of using a stiff-bristled brush to gently remove dried stains and spots) absorbent off in the direction of the nap. If any stain remains, reapply fresh absorbent.
  • Allow absorbent to work, then gently brush off.
