STAIN REMOVAL

wpe6.jpg (3282 bytes)

The advice on these pages is given in good faith but it is made clear these remedies are undertaken at your own risk. No responsibility can be taken as regards their results or any consequences relating to their use. Please read notes at beginning of this section.

  • If you place the stained area on a soft absorbent cloth, or rolled up ball of kitchen paper, and use a circular motion from the outside in towards the centre, this will avoid making a ring mark.
     

  • Do not rub the remover onto the stain as this can damage the fabric and cause the stain to spread, always use a dabbing motion.
     

  • If the damaged item is washable, rinse NON GREASY stains away with water.
     

  • If the stain is greasy, sprinkle talc on the mark to absorb it.

FOR OTHER VITAL INFORMATION PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO LOOK AT "REMEMBER" AND "PRODUCTS".

Beer

Beverages

Carpet

Squirt from soda siphon.

Blood

Fabric

Soak in salted cold water, or warm detergent solution. Wash in the usual manner. Stubborn stains can be soaked in hydrogen peroxide solution (20 volume strength diluted 1 part to 4 parts water) plus a few drops of ammonia.

To remove blood from clothing treat with hydrogen peroxide, then launder as normal.

Donna Jones

For blood stains which have been set and/or washed in, dampen the stain with warm - not hot - water and cover with UNSEASONED meat tenderizer, making a paste. N.B. The seasoned variety can leave a stain from the seasoning. Cover with wet paper towel and let sit several hours or overnight, keeping it damp if possible.  This will break down the blood just as it does to meat fibres.   Rinse off the past, spray with ammonia- water solution or commercial pre-wash spray and launder as normal as soon as possible.

Thank you DebbW for this one.

The best way to remove blood from fabric is for the person whose blood it is to spit on the stain.  It will come right out.

"Lindaben" contributed this one - thanks.
