How To Remove Stains From Your Clothes
A stain on your favorite piece of clothing can be a frustrating experience. If tackled well, no problem can be devoid of a solution and same is the case with stains. Stains can be greasy, non-greasy or a combination of both. Greasy stains can be those which come from oil, grease and other members of the same family. They would be sticky and oily in nature. Non-greasy stains are usually the ones that come from tea, coffee, ink and such other items. Combination stains are a part of both and the most common example of this could be makeup.
Irrespective of how a stain is, the solution lies in how the stain is tackled. For starters, act as soon as you can. Don’t wait for a stain to settle down in the threads of the fabric and dry up because then it would be almost impossible to remove the stain without changing the color of your fabric. When you are removing the stain, don’t rub on the area but instead try and dissolve the stain. Blot the stain instead of rubbing it or it would be pushed deeper into the threads of the fabric.
The next step is to identify the nature of the stain. There are different products and different methods prescribed for removing different types of stains. You need to identify what stained the cloth in the very first place before working on it. Make sure you use only relevant products and do not mix and match products or combine different products expecting a better result. All this will, in reality, do much more damage to your clothes. Stick to the instructions on how to use the product for best results.
When in doubt, it is always better to identify a particular stain and rush to a dry cleaner. At the cleaner’s, they have much more experience and would tackle the stain with tact and would effectively have it removed.
