How to Remove Stains
Removing stains can be really tough. Some stains, if treated improperly, will become impossible to remove. Try our technique for cleaning up upholstery & carpets.
Before treating stains on any cloth, best to be sure to check for colorfastness. Check it by using the cleaning product on a piece of the cloth in a hidden area. If you’re not sure what the stain is, try cold water first.
For bloodstains, be sure to always use cold water, even if they are set in. Club Soda will probably get out fresh blood. For fresh or set in blood, try the following: 1 tablespoon dish liquid, 1 cup water, and 1 tablespoon ammonia or use straight hydrogen peroxide. This makes the blood completely disappear with a few applications.
Draw out grease by putting baking soda or cornstarch on stain, leave on 15 minutes, add water, create paste, let it dry & brush off. If grease stain is still visible, treat again with white vinegar. To treat common stains with warm or hot white vinegar.
To clean stains on nubuck leather, use a combination of 1 part lemon juice and 1 part cream of tartar. Create a paste and rub into the stain. Let dry then rub off. Fluff nap with emery board. Just remember that if you wet down leather, sometimes it leaves a ring around the wet area after it dries.
Coffee, tea, juice, wine and other food stains—cold club soda is always what you should try first. After the stain has dried or set in, try this recipe:
1/3 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons mild dish liquid
2/3 cup water
Sponge mixture onto stain and allow to sit for several minutes then clean off immediately. Blot dry after it is clean.
Ink Stains on Carpet and Furniture
Aerosol hairspray, hydrogen peroxide and non-acetone nail polish remover work on ink stains on carpet and furniture. Be sure to check first for colorfastness. Use full strength.
Gum on Carpet or Upholstery
To get chewing gum out of carpet or upholstery, first, scrape off as much as possible without spreading it out further. Then, fill a zipper plastic bag with ice and put it on the gum., making sure the gum is frozen all the way through. Freezing the area will cause the gum to harden and pull away from the fibers. Finish scraping away the gum. If all of the gum doesn’t come up, try putting a paper sack (brown paper bag) over the gum and ironing it. The heat will transfer whatever is left to the bag. Be sure to keep moving the bag around so you are always using a clean section. Make sure you don’t put the bag against the upholstery that has been ironed, the gum stuck to the bag may transfer back to the upholstery.
Nothing can make your establishment look more gloomy that stains.
