Default How do you get a scorch mark off poly. dress pants?

I accidentally had my iron too hot and was starting to iron my dress pants for church tomorrow. It was too hot and now there is a scorch mark on my nice black dress pants. Any ideas???

Sorry to say, there is no getting it off. Scorch marks are left when the fabric is actually burned, so it isn't like a stain that can be treated.

I found this info on a quilting website...

Quote:
Scorch marks are different from a true stain in that the actual fiber is damaged. Severe marks on any fabric, or scorch marks on wool and silk can seldom be restored. Brushing with fine emery paper may improve a scorched woollen surface. Very light scorch marks can often be removed by immediate washing with your usual laundry product. Alternatively, sponge with 1 Tbsp. borax in 1 c warm water.
