Stains in clothing and fabrics

Red stains from strawberry ice cream or chocolate biscuits on the sofa. Coffee spilled because you’re still sleepy in the morning before the start of a busy working day. Red wine in the carpet after a fabulous party. Stains happen just like that! Sometimes it seems impossible to remove them. Yet there are all sorts of ways in which you can remove them from clothing or other fabrics, even the ones that seemed to be persistent!

Remove stains and prevent throwing away

For all stains, the quicker you act, the better! Always prevent the stain from absorbing, because the deeper the liquid has penetrated, the more difficult it will be to remove.

Never rub! It will only make the stain worse or damage the fabric, particularly when you're dealing with delicate fabrics like wool or silk.
