Always remove or treat stains as quickly as possible. The longer the stain sets, the harder it will be to remove.

Some guidelines to use in stain removal are:

  • Treat stains while fresh.
  • Know the stain.
  • Know the fiber content of the fabric.
  • Test stain remover on a hidden part of garment before treating the stain.
  • Avoid excessive rubbing.
  • Work from the wrong side of the fabric, forcing the stain out, not in.
  • Give cleaning agents time to work.
