Stain Removal General Advice

By Corey Tournet August 28, 2018

    • Buy your stain removal and other cleaning products from a    janitorial supply store, instead of the supermarket. These stores can    provide you with better, cheaper cleaning products. They are also more    knowledgeable when it comes to stain removal, and will provide you with    better advice than you could get from a supermarket or hardware store.
    • You can waste a lot of time and money by using washers and    dryers incorrectly. Take a few minutes to read the small booklets that came    with your washer and dryer.
    • The fresher the stain is, the easier it is to remove.
    • Always remove as much of the stain as possible before    treating. Be as gentle as possible, as rubbing or wringing can cause a stain    to penetrate more deeply. Remove spilled material gently, with a spoon or    butter knife.
    • Start at the outside of the stain and work inward to avoid    spreading the stain. Always blot, and never scrub.
    • Avoid staining other parts of the garment, by spreading the    stained part over a towel or absorbent pad.
    • Always test the stain removal product on an inconspicuous    place, such as a shirttail, inside seam or hem.
    • Air-dry treated items afterward, to make sure the stain is    fully removed. Some stains are not easy to see when the garment is wet, and    putting them in a hot dryer could set them.
    • Never combine stain removal products (especially ammonia and    chlorine bleach, which create dangerous fumes).
