Does anybody know how to get a coffee stain out if woolen tzitzis?
I sent the tzitzis to the dry cleaners, but there is still a stain.
Anybody have any ideas?
P.S. if anybody knows how to get a coffee stain out of a white shirt.March 19, 2022 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #2070447AviraDeArahParticipant
I’ve gotten everything except pen marks out with shout, 2 coats, 5 minutes apartMarch 20, 2022 1:49 am at 1:49 am #2070458
You are able to use shout on woolen tzitzis?March 20, 2022 7:11 am at 7:11 am #2070541AviraDeArahParticipant
My mistake; I didn’t notice the word “woolen”. I wear mostly cotton. I follow minhag ha’gra for many things (my family is related to the gaon), this being one of them.March 20, 2022 11:04 am at 11:04 am #2070669commonsaychelParticipant

To ArivaDeArah: You yell at your Talis? And it cleans it? Maybe you should try that with chumetz before Pesach.March 22, 2022 12:00 am at 12:00 am #2071364

Huju, you would be surprised at how many people think that yelling is an effective way of getting rid of chometz before Pesach.March 22, 2022 7:51 am at 7:51 am #2071424rightwriterParticipant
I think there are special formula bottles made for tzitzis they sell them at Yiddishe home stores in Williamsburg and probably around boro park. There are a few brands that I heard actually work. Or at least one of the brands.March 22, 2022 7:52 am at 7:52 am #2071417JFPParticipant
The Real best way is to soak it in whole milk for a good 20min to a half hour, then wash it again or send it to dry clean,
Note. in the future soak it first before washing it or dry clean.March 22, 2022 12:14 pm at 12:14 pm #2071578kollelmanParticipant
Hydrogen peroxide cleans wool tzitzis best. I put tzitzis into a large ziploc bag and pour peroxide into it. Whitens them up nicely.March 22, 2022 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #2071575rightwriterParticipant

> to soak it in whole milk
does it have to be cholov isroel or is it ok to put goyishe milk on tzitzis?March 23, 2022 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #2071887GadolhadorahParticipant
AAQ: Cholov stam is only allowed where there is a shaylah that the tzitsis might also be shatnez.March 23, 2022 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #2071950LostsparkParticipant

I spit my coffee out at the remark and am now in the same boat as the OP.March 23, 2022 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #2071993
Lostspark, it was not a remark, just a question. After I spilled fleishege bvorsch onto my tzitses, I am drinking only black coffee to avoid not being able to get hanaah from the basar vechalav tzitis. I guess I could use 4 tzitsis : for halav isroel & sam, and basar kosher and taref.March 24, 2022 12:43 am at 12:43 am #2072004LostsparkParticipant
