How to get oil stain out of silk blouse
Make a gentle stain removal solution by mixing 1 part liquid dish soap with 10 parts water. Never attempt to remove a stain by using dishwasher detergent -- it is highly alkaline and may damage the silk.
Test the fabric for colorfastness before you treat the stain. Use an eyedropper to place a drop of the solution on a hidden inner seam, and then let the solution penetrate the fabric for one to two minutes. If the silk fades or discolors, take the garment to a professional dry cleaner.
Step 3 Apply a small amount of the soap solution to the stain with an eyedropper or a clean sponge. Tap the solution gently into the stain with your fingertips or a clean, soft brush. Let it penetrate the stain for five to 10 minutes.
Step 4 Launder the garment immediately, according to the garment care tag. If appropriate, wash the garment in lukewarm water and a few drops of baby shampoo or a detergent manufactured for hand washables. Silk should be agitated very gently if at all, advise fabric care experts at Oregon State University Extension.
Step 5 Rinse the silk gently in clear water.
Step 6 Inspect the garment and repeat the stain removal process if the stain is still visible. If the stain is gone, wrap the garment loosely in a soft white towel, and then lay it flat to dry or hang it on a padded hanger.
