Pro Tip: Act quickly. The sooner you address the stain, the easier it will be to remove. Avoid letting the stain set into the fabric. 

Simple Stain-Removal:

Step 1 - Blot the stain: 

Start by gently blotting the stained area with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb any excess liquid or residue. Avoid rubbing, as it may push the stain deeper into the fabric.

Step 2 - Treat the stain:  

  • Water-based stains (e.g., coffee, tea, juice): Flush the stain with cold water from the inside of the garment to push out as much of the stain as possible. 
  • Oil-based stains (e.g., grease, makeup): Apply a small amount of mild dish soap or liquid laundry detergent directly to the stain. Gently rub the fabric together to create a lather and let it sit for a few minutes. ** Dish soap works wonders for these types of stains! 

Step 3 - Rinse and repeat: 

Rinse the treated area thoroughly with cold water and inspect the stain. If it persists, repeat the process until the stain lightens or disappears.

Targeted Stain Removal Techniques:

  • Ink stains: Dab the stain with rubbing alcohol or a specialized ink remover using a clean cloth until the ink is lifted. Rinse thoroughly afterward. 

  • Food stains: Mix a solution of equal parts vinegar and water. Apply the solution to the stain and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing. 

  • Blood stains: Rinse the stain under hot water, then soak the garment in cold water with a tablespoon of salt or enzyme-based stain remover for 30 minutes. Launder as usual.

Dealing with Stubborn Stains:

  • Wine stains: Blot the stain to remove excess liquid, then sprinkle salt or baking soda on it to absorb any remaining moisture. Rinse with cold water and launder as usual. 

  • Grease stains: Place a clean paper towel or cloth underneath the stain and apply a small amount of dish soap or liquid laundry detergent. Gently blot the stain from the outer edges toward the center until the grease is lifted.

Tips for Successful Stain Removal:

  • Always test a small, inconspicuous area of the fabric before applying any stain remover to ensure it doesn't cause discoloration or damage. 

  • Avoid using hot water (as much as possible) on polyester, as it can cause the fabric to shrink or become damaged. 

  • Patience is key. Some stains may require multiple treatments or professional cleaning for complete removal.
