How to remove bird poop from my clothing?

Although it is regarded as ‘Good Luck!’, it is never a pleasant experience, whilst you are just minding your own business, a bird poops just at the right time as it's flying way above and lands on your lovely clothing.

It has happened to us at Farthings before, and although it’s embarrassing, we never felt lucky!

So today, we want to share with you some helpful tips to remove the unwanted poop without ruining your lovely items.

1- Never try to remove the bird poop until dry- Removing when wet will only leave a bigger mess, sullying the fabric even more.

2- Wait until completely dry- If you are lucky, it may peel off in one piece. However, if you are still left with some smaller spots, grab a credit card and gently scrape off any of the offending poop left.

3- Still, a light spot left after the dried poop has gone- Simply wipe or pat the spot with a clean damp cloth for a few minutes. Top Tip- Using a non-lint cloth such as a microfibre cloth means you will not be left with unsightly lint fibres.

4- Leave to dry for a few hours- You will be amazed at the results. The marks should have disappeared, leaving the incident a distant memory!

Remember- Always always check the manufacturers care label before going ahead with any cleaning.
