Getting rid of stains isn’t always a breeze, and one shouldn’t simply assume that “it’ll come out in the wash.” In this blog post, we’ll take a look at a few helpful tips for stain removal, ensuring that your clothes can continue to look their best.
Treat the Stain ASAP
One of the best things that you can do to ensure that your clothes won’t stain is to not ignore the fact that your article of clothing has been stained. If you’re at home, simply getting up and treating the stain with a bit of water will help prevent it from setting in, as it will essentially help rinse the stain away before it has time to sink into the fibers of your clothing. Simply wet the spot and then wipe the stain off as best you can, repeating this step a few times if necessary. If you wish to rub in a small spot of dish soap to the spot, feel free to do so as that can also help with getting rid of the stain.
If you’re the type of person who has a spot-removing pen handy, this would be a great opportunity to use it. Once the cause of the stain has been wet and removed from the article of clothing as best as possible, running over the spot with the stain-treatment pen a few times will also be of great help to you. In some cases, this can nearly remove the stain in its entirety if you treat it fast enough, but at the very least, this will help it come out in the wash.
Use Dedicated Stain Removers For Tough Stains
Spilling something water-based or faintly colored can be easily removed with minimal effort, but tougher stains like grass, chocolate, wine, and the like require a bit more special care to remove. Stain gels, sticks and sprays are designed to treat stains such as these, and they work best if you give them a short amount of time to set in, between two and five minutes. If you don’t have access to a dedicated stain remover, treating it with your detergent of choice can be an apt replacement.
After letting your spot treatment of choice set in for a brief period, throw it in the wash in the warmest water that the garment can withstand, and you’ll notice the stain to be largely gone or gone entirely. Wash again as needed, but do not machine dry your garment until the stain is completely gone, as drying it can make it far more difficult to remove.
Those are just a few helpful steps that will make stain removal a breeze. If you’re looking for a high-quality laundromat in Colorado Springs, look no further than LaundryLounge.
