/ Grease stains on down clothing
Decided to cook spaghetti bolognese whilst wearing my Alpkit Fila gilet yesterday. Went to put it on today and noticed there are about 4 grease marks on the front of it.
Semi-tried to remove them with a surface wipe type thing but didn't really expect that.
I have googled it but the answers seem to not properly take into account that it's down, or are just silly.
Has anyone removed such stains successfully before? How?
I thought down jackets were supposed to be covered in stains, patches and marks, each one celebrating a previous trip and adding to the tale of your life? Or is it just mine! :D
I was going to suggest simply wiping it off. What you don't want to do is get the down underneath very wet if you can help it. If the stain spots are small and in an accessible area, you may be able to "work" the down underneath away from the affected area, and then carefully apply a little hotter water without it getting onto the down? Bolognaise is about as strong a stain as food gets though!
You could try dipping the whole jacket in sauce so the spots wouldn't notice? That's about what I did to mine, but not all at one go.
I know they're meant to be covered in rips and muck and duct tape, but I don't want mine to be! I enjoy being warm whilst not looking immensely scruffy at the same time :D
I'll try the working it in idea, thanks!
Either send it to the miraculous Franklins, or use a nail brush to gently remover the grease, then rinse.
If its just the surface, and not soaked in, then try baby wipes.
