Water Spots on Drapery Fabric

by Beverly Fuller
(United States)

Can water spots be removed from Drapery Fabric ? I believe the material is Antique Satin. I tried wiping down with water, but did not work. The spots have been there for some time. The spots are irregular, and have a brown outline. The color of the fabric is white. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate the help. I am open to trying anything that might work.Thank you

water spots on drapery fabric

From your description of the stain, its sounds like it is a "water ring" from when the drapery got wet in that spot and dried to a dark spot or perhaps a staining material spilled onto it and it dried dark.

You describe the fabric as Antique Satin which is not really a fabric material but a style/color.

If it is a water ring then it might be removed by an oxidizing product, like hydrogen peroxide (the brown bottle type from the drug store). Always test (whatever product) in an inconspicuous area. If the product is safe to use on the fabric then re-wet the stain and see how it works. Then speed dry with hair dryer or fan.

If the stain is from a drink spill like coffee or tea then a spot remover for coffee or tea might work. A cleaning product like Procyon Spot & Stain Remover would be a good choice.

The problem here is the difficulty in trying to diagnose via the internet and without examining the stain firsthand it is difficult to correct.

Perhaps someone else can give us a solution.
