Stain Removal Guideline

Removing Stains
This page revolves around stains. All kinds of stains and all kinds of fabric. From clothes to furniture and beyond. Got a stain issue? Maybe we can help.
I will be adding removal tips as I go along. So this page will be filled with helpful tips you can use.

1. 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.
