How to Remove Day Lily Pollen Stains

Working in the garden can be both rewarding and relaxing. A variety of stains can occur when you're working around flowers, one of which is day lily pollen stains. Day lilies have an orange-coloured pollen that is important to the plant's ability to reproduce and, when you brush against the pollen, thousands of tiny grains are released into the air and can end up on your clothing. While your first instinct might be to brush the pollen off, this can actually make the stain worse by smearing it. Remove the pollen stains carefully and completely so you don't end up with a bigger stain.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Lint rollerHand-held vacuum (optional)BucketPre-wash laundry stain removerEnzymatic washing powderOxygen bleach

Instructions

1 Remove your clothing with the day lily pollen stains on it. Carefully fold the clothing so the pollen stain is inside and carry your clothing outdoors. Give your clothing a few good shakes to remove as much pollen as possible.

2

How to Remove Day Lily Pollen Stains

Lay your clothing flat, with the pollen stained side up. Run a lint roller over the day lily pollen to lift the granules from the fabric. If you have a hand-held vacuum you can use that, instead, to remove pollen grains.

3 Fill a bucket with cold water and place your pollen-stained clothing in the bucket. Soak the clothes for half an hour to loosen any remaining lily pollen from the fabric. Lift your clothing from the bucket and wring out the water.

4

How to Remove Day Lily Pollen Stains

Cover any remaining pollen stains with laundry pre-wash stain remover. Rub the solution into the fabric's fibres and allow it to sit for 15 minutes.

5 Wash your clothing with the hottest water allowed, using an enzyme washing powder to help remove any remaining pollen from your clothing. Add oxygen bleach, which is safe for all colours, to the wash cycle to boost stain-lifting power.

6 Check your clothing before putting it in the dryer to make sure the pollen stain is completely gone. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 if any stain remains. Hang dry or place your clothing in the dryer.

Tips and warnings

Lift pollen granules from clothing with tape.

Wear a gardener's apron or old clothing when working around lilies.

Don't rub and scrub a day lily pollen stain as this will only spread the stain.
