I had some lilies last week and managed to brush against them and get pollen on the waistband/ pocket area of my favourite jeans. I naively thought it would just wash out but when i got them out of the washer yesterday the pollen has smeared and stained.
Oh wise Mumsnetters - is there anything I can do? The jeans are a very pale denim if that helps.
I find Fairy Liquid put onto stains and then put the clothes straight into the washing machine gets nearly all stains out. Haven't had lily pollen on clothes as I don't buy flowers and lilies are poisonous to cats.
I was ill last year and received flowers including lilies which I put on the mantelpiece, MIL in her wisdom thought they would look better on the windowsill and my new cream curtains got lily pollen stains on. A few days on the washing line did fade it away again though.
