Soak spots in a solution of 1 part lemon juice and 1 part water with a pinch of salt. For stubborn stains, try immersing in a bath of non-chlorine bleach set in direct sunlight. Soak if needed, changing the water and bleach daily. To iron, blot linens dry, and wrap in a terry towel. Put in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days so the moisture will be drawn out evenly. Spread on a fresh terry towel and iron.
