Laundry Stain Removal Tips

Stain Removal Tips
Being that it is winter I'm starting the first post for the occasion. Since a lot of us have coal, and wood burners along with fireplaces in our homes this is the best removal tip for the season.

I also have a Stain Removal Page for all sorts of stubborn stains. Be sure to check it out for our latest removal tips.

Ash Stain Removal From Clothing

  •  Shake off any excess ashes from the fabric, being careful not to spread the stain further into the fabric.
  • Run the fabric, inside out, under cold water to flush out as much of the ash as possible.
  •  Pretreat the stain with a prewash stain remover.
  • Launder in the hottest water the fabric will allow to get out the ash stain, and either chlorine bleach if the fabric will allow it, or color safe bleach.
  • If these steps do not work you can next try sponging the ash stained area with rubbing alcohol to remove the stain. Then, wash as normal.
Hint: Make sure the stain is gone after washing, before putting in the dryer or you make the stain worse. 

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day! Love, Mary
