Stains are one of the unavoidable facts that are ought to happen through daily life. But there’s no reason to give up on your favorite garments. So here’s how you can have your clothes brand new! Wash the garment as soon as possible or at least keep it wet until you get home, assuming you were out. And NEVER rub it! When your garment is finally clean, dry and hang it then iron it with a steam iron such as Ultimate Anti-Calc.
Try to run the garment under cold water then wash it using the highest setting possible for the fabric. Remember not to use soap-based detergent because it could make the stain permanent. Soak for 30 minutes in a mixture of 1L of warm water and ¾ tsp of stain removal product. Make sure the stain is completely removed before you dry and iron the garment because any remaining sugars will be caramelized when combined with the heat of your dryer and/or iron and you will end up with a brown stain.
In a large laundry bowl, combine cold water with ½ tsp of liquid dishwashing detergent and 1 tsp of vinegar. Soak the garment in the mixture for 30 minutes. Rinse then air dry. Repeat if necessary, and don’t use hot water, dryer or iron until the stain is completely removed.
If the stain is fresh, soak the garment and agitate it in cold water. If it already dried, scrape or brush off any excess and soak in cold water combined with a stain removal product. Then, wash in warm water and make sure your garment is spotless before you iron it.
