Ironing wounds on shirt collar

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I ran across a nice Borrelli shirt at a thrift shop in very good condition except for a shiny spot from ironing at the point of the collar. It's a blue end-on-end broadcloth. I actually considered getting it just for the buttons (at $6, those are some amazing buttons) but I decided it would be wrong to hack them off and leave the shirt buttonless. But if I can fix the collar problem (or if someone wants it regardless) I might go back and get it. Any hope of fixing this?

Not a joke: Squeeze a lemon into a shallow dish. Let evaporate. Rub the remaining salts-of-lemon on the shiny spot with your fingertip. Leave overnight. Wash normally. Usually works. FYI - works for scorches too. And you can hurry the evaporation by plading in the Sun or in a low oven. Courtesy of Kabbaz's Believe-It-Or-Not.

P.S. Take it: That's less than I could get the buttons for wholesale.

I was gonna say the same thing -- those buttons are incredible.

I'll pick it up tomorrow then. Thanks for the tips. I guess if I can't save the collar, I could always have a white one made for it.
