If you have a pair of light wool pants, you know that they're comfortable, lightweight, sophisticated, and stylish to boot. Bet you also know that wool is very absorbent and that those wool pants can get stained very, very easily. Getting the stains out fast is important and avoiding heat is just as important, because heat will set the stains into the pants. You'll need a few other items to get your wool pants looking nice again.
Use a cloth to blot at the stain and pull up as much as you can while it's still wet. When performing stain removal, remember to blot and not rub, because rubbing just pushes the stain deeper into the material.
Put a towel inside the pants where the stain is located to help keep the stain--or the moisture from the cleaning process--from spreading.
Dampen another cloth with warm water and blot some more. This may be enough to remove some stains, such as fruit juice and water. Just blot with the warm damp cloth until the stain is gone.
Mix ¼ cup of soft wool detergent, ¼ cup of distilled white vinegar and 1 liter of warm water. Dip a clean cloth into the mixture and blot at the stain. This should remove other stains such as ice cream, beer or chocolate.
Combine ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide and ¼ cup of cold water and use the mixture to blot away a burn or heat mark.
Apply a small amount of dry cleaning solvent to an oil or grease stain.
