How do I get that bright yellow staining out?It is all over 2 white tops where dp and I both touched them when pulling the curtains and I have washed with bio powder and still there!

Lily stains are a pain aren't they? I've learnt the hard way and now cut the stems out. Hopefully someone will come along with an answer for you! I will watch with interest.

Good luck. We had a carpet replaced on insurance because there was no way to remove those stains. Bleach is your only hope, I suspect (and removing the stamens before they open next time!).

I've found the only way to get lilly stains out is sunlight. Pop the item in a window/conservatory/greenhouse for a few days and the sunlight will bleach it clean.
Hope this helps x

Sellotape, then wash as usual.

I've got lily stains on our white material blinds a couple of times. While they are still dry and powdery hoover em up with the vacuum attachment.

The only way I have ever been able to remove them is by blowing a hairdrier on the stain using the lowest setting.

Sellotape also works but if you've already washed them I don't think there is much hope- sorry.
