Light scorch marks on clothing, such as those caused by an iron, may be repaired by applying a chemical mixture, allowing it to soak and then laundering the clothing. This process, which is recommended by Good Housekeeping, can take as long as an hour, not including the laundering time. You need hydrogen peroxide, ammonia, water and oxygen bleach. Remember to spot test the fabric before applying the hydrogen peroxide, as some colors or fabrics can fade or become discolored.Continue Reading
Good Housekeeping recommends using an eye dropper for application. Hydrogen peroxide is most effective in removing scorch marks on cotton or linen fabrics and can be purchased at any grocery or drug store.
Use the eye dropper to apply the ammonia on top of the hydrogen peroxide.
Continue to re-wet the stain with the hydrogen peroxide and ammonia as needed. Do not allow the mixture to dry.
Flush out the chemicals using cold tap water.
Before taking this step, ensure the fabric is safe for bleaching. If the care instructions prohibit bleaching, launder without using bleach.
