Follow these steps to remove glue spots from non-washable fabrics such as acetate, fiberglass, rayon, silk, triacetate and wool:
- Immediately sponge (the method of using light strokes with a dampened pad working outward from the center of the stain) the area with water.
- Then apply a wet spotter and a few drops of white vinegar.
- Cover with an absorbent pad dampened with a wet spotter.
- Let it stand as long as any stain is being picked up.
- Change the pad as it removes the stain.
- Keep both the stain and pad moist with a wet spotter and vinegar.
- Flush (the method of applying stain remover to loosen staining materials and residue from stain removers) with water and repeat until you can't remove any longer.
For a lingering stain:
- Use an enzyme presoak (follow directions on the label; caution, some enzyme presoaks are not designed for use on wool or silk).
- Cover with a clean pad that you have dipped in the solution and wrung dry.
- Let it stand 30 minutes.
- Keep the area and pad moist and warm, but do not let the wet area spread.
- When you can't remove the stain any longer, flush thoroughly with water and allow it to dry.
