Getting rid of Rayon Velvet Water Spots

Hi---------
A couple of months ago I posted a question about how to get rid of rubbed places (water spots??) in rayon velvet.
I ran across the answer on an old-time remedies website:
Get a teakettle bowling with a relatively small amount of water. Hold the velvet over the kettle spout to steam it. Do not get too close to spout----you want to steam it, not wet it.
I tried on the underside, but without the results I needed. Worked like a charm when I steamed it from the right side.
Then hang the item up to dry on a padded hanger, with nothing pressing against the velvet pile.
Has anyone had good results with a clothing steamer? I don't have one, but the tea kettle worked for me.
Warmest Regards,
Donna

I was in a brain fog and wrote:

oops--- I meant "boiling," not bowling---
Funny image. Tonight I was reading and did a doubletake when I thought I read the following:
"She resisted his proposals of the marriage, and waited five years before martyring him."
Of course, the correct word was "marrying." But actually I think it was a mental Freudian slip on my part. :-)
