How To Remove Mud Stains From Silk
Silk generally should be dry cleaned. Always follow garment label instructions when pretreating and laundering your clothes. For colored garments, test an inside seam for colorfastness.
If the garment is washable, let stain dry then brush off as much mud as possible. Then let soak overnight in water with Purex® detergent and 20 Mule Team Borax. Pretreat with Purex® detergent, then launder in the warmest water recommended on the garment label. For heavy stains, add a color safe bleach (if recommended for garment).Avoid cleaning silk with laundry products containing enzymes. If dry clean only, take it to the dry cleaner for stain removal.
