On clothes? Try rewashing.
Scorched on what?
NOT SCORCHED SMELL.
What did you scorch?
Ok, Betty has some great suggestions for you. I iron almost everything, tablecloths, runners, placemats, napkins, hankies, curtains and sometimes even my sheets, that's why I asked. It also depends on the fabric content of the garment. Synthetics scorch easier.
Hi Sybil: Try rubbing the area lightly with a tooth brush to bring the nap back up, no matter how short the nap is. You may wet the area a bit while rubbing. Good luck.
Rewash the item in cold water, then steam iron on low.
Here are some ways to restore! Good luck.
