Q: Is there any way to restore sizing damage or color loss in acetate fabrics once it has occurred?
A: If part of an acetate fabric suffers discoloration, it’s sometimes possible to correct the damage. There are two methods a drycleaner can use.
For the first method, dissolve five ounces of mineral oil in one gallon of solvent. Soak the acetate fabric in the solution for about 15 minutes. Extract lightly and reclaim the solvent.
