Lilies are so lovely, but those stamens can be a nightmare if you accidentally brush past and get your clothes caught against them. Whatever you do, do not rub at the pollen!

The only answer is to take a piece of sticky tape, keep pressing very lightly over the stain and renewing the tape until every last particle is gone from the surface.
