5 Common Stains and How to Treat Them

Posted by Clean Rite on May 05, 2021

It’s an unfortunate truth that no matter how careful you are, your clothes are bound to catch a stain eventually. 

What kind of stain and how it happens depends on the person — but everyone wants to get those stains out fast. 

So today you will be learning how to combat the top 5 most common stains just in case you get caught off guard by one of these.

 

Grass (Got Kids or a Pet?) 

Pretreat with stain remover to get started. The water you use should be the hottest water setting that specific piece of clothing can handle. We advise doing this by hand and getting a vinegar water mix going (1:2 ratio) and scrub with a toothbrush.

 

Blood

Rinse the spot out with cold water as soon as possible to stop the blood from setting, after that you continual dab the area with hydrogen peroxide and that should get it out.

 

Coffee 

Run the stain under cold water for about 5 minutes. After which you apply some detergent to the stain and let it sit for about 5 minutes. If the stain is still there then soak in warm water for 15 minutes, apply stain remover then wash.

 

Chocolate 

First thing’s first, turn the piece of clothing inside out and then rinse the affected area with cold water. After that start rubbing in soap or liquid detergent into the stain and then soak for at least 15 minutes.

 

Red Wine 

Apply salt and then white vinegar to the stain, this should remove a lot of the wine from the fabric as well as neutralize the pigments in the wine.  After this you’ll want to apply detergent and wash in the hottest water the fabric can handle
