Spot Removal & Spotting Chart

PROCEDURE A: 2 cups HOT water with 1 tsp. gentle laundry detergent (using a squirt bottle works best). Mist & blot multiple times. (Tide & Bold are too strong - use Sunlight or Woolite if possible). Final step is always absorb as much as possible, finish with step 5 below

PROCEDURE A-1: Same as above except a half and half solution of vinegar and hot water, this is best for natural fibers (cotton).

PROCEDURE A-2: Same as above except 2 Tbs. household ammonia to 1 cup hot water, not on natural fibres, use Procedure 'A' on them.

PROCEDURE B: Paint thinner or citris solve applied with Q-tip. Can damage fabric construction if over applied. Provide adequate ventilation! A professional spotting agent we have available, would be a better choice of product. but this works.

PROCEDURE C: Freeze using ice cubes then chip away after thoroughly frozen.

P - Professional service required!!
- Colors such as those found in soft drinks, Kool-Aid, candle wax etc. will re-dye most natural fabrics and some synthetics.
- Solution may need to be heated hotter than the staining product.

  1. Remove spots as they happen Fresh spots and stains are easier to remove than old ones.

  2. Remove as much solids as you can using spatula or the like.

  3. Absorb wet spills quickly with paper towels and absorb as much moisture as possible!

  4. Always blot the fiber - NEVER scrub or rub, this causes the fibers to fuzz & result in permanent damage!!

  5. Final step is ALWAYS to put a stack of paper towels and hold down with a weight such as a book until dry (12-24 hours).

  6. Follow the directions - they actually work when followed properly.

  7. Good luck.
