Removing Lily Pollen

Lily Stamen

Few flowers can match the timeless beauty of the fragrant lily.  The pollen however can on occasion be a bit of a pain if you happen to get some on your clothes.

When working with lilies this can become a regular occurrence.  We’ve found the best way to remove the pollen from clothing if you manage to catch it before it gets rubbed in is to dab the pollen with the sticky side of a strip of sellotape.

This will lift the majority of the pollen and secure it for easy disposal.
