Silicone Stains: Your Questions
Is it possible to get silicone stains off from denim and cotton?
It would be helpful to know the source of the silicone. I worked on Armor All and we used a lot of silicone for our protectant and tire products. The important thing here is to use a good product with lots of surfactants like liquid detergent to pretreat prior to washing (apply; rub into stain; wait 5–10 minutes) in HOT water using liquid detergent.
The good news is these are cotton fabrics here rather than a poly/cotton blend, which would hold the silicone much more tightly than cotton.
Don’t forget to check for success before drying as it will make any unremoved silicone much more difficult/impossible to remove. If there is still silicone remaining you can retreat fabrics again.
