Removing Lily Pollen Stains

It's bound to happen. We are out in the garden enjoying our flowers, perhaps leaning in a bit to sniff the lilies or scrunching in closer for that perfect photograph. Later we find smears of lily pollen on our clothing.

My 3-legged house cat, Lucky, managed to get up on the kitchen table to smell a bouquet of lilies our neighbor brought to us.

He could not hide the evidence. Rolling my eyes.

He is missing a back leg, and normally cannot manage to jump up on the kitchen chair to make it up on the table - but I guess the desire to smell the lilies gave him an extra boost. I never dreamed he would be able to make it or I would not have left them on the table.

We carefully wiped off all we could, but being so close to his eyes, we didn't want to use anything to strong. That yellow stain was there until fall, when he shed his summer coat for his winter one.
