Found 10th Jan 2012
Thanks in advance

I brought a really nice velvet dress and by accident I ironed the whole dress on the front and now it has iron marks all over, any advice on how to get these out.

Rip it, take it back saying you never noticed till you detagged it, then exchange it - dont mention the iron marks and just concentrate their attention on the rip!!

No one is silly enough to take an dress back for a refund with iron marks.

REPAIRING IRON MARKS & NEEDLE MARKS: Velvet pile that is almost totally flattened by an iron is not repairable. Moderate to minor marks can be minimized with a few steps and the help of a second person. Lay the damaged area over your velvaboard or towel, but this time with the velvet pile facing up. Release steam about one inch above the damaged area and have a friend on standby with a soft toothbrush to very quickly move in and brush the still damp/warm pile back and forth to raise the pile. This may have to be repeated several times. A hairbrush with soft bristles also will work. You may notice that brushing in the opposite direction of the flattened pile works best. Final point, machine washing and drying the garment using directions above also will help lift some of flattened pile.

Honest answer - bin it - replace it - dont do it again!!!

I think his username says it all.



Don't start trying to backtrack now...

Curious to know how you ironed the whole of the front of the dress by "accident".

Yeah, because the opinions of an internet user that I dont and probably wont ever know has SUCH a bearing on my life that I feel the need to cover my tracks!! Your useful input/trolling on this thread has been invaluable - thanks for visiting
