How-to #16: Remove stains from fabrics

If you know what's stained your fabric, use the stain-specific formulas of Stain Devils®. You can find their bright yellow bottles - usually on the top shelf - in the laundry section of the grocery store. Stain Devils run the gamut from "Chocolate, Ketchup & Mustard" and "Coffee, Tea, Wine & Juice" to "Rust & Perspiration" -- who knew those two were chemically related? Follow directions exactly.

If you don't know what the stain is, The Laundress® Stain Solution is perfect. It even works well on old stains - woohoo! And if you think the stain might be organic, try Nature's Miracle (enzyme-based). Incredible!® stain remover is another excellent, all-purpose stain remover when you don't know what you've got, and Sard® Wonder Soap is good if you can get to the stain -- and some water -- immediately.

Scrub efficiently with The Laundress® Stain Brush (horsehair - great for collars and cuffs) or very soft toothbrush - test first to make sure it doesn't pull your fabric!

Finally, an antique linens dealer gave me this tip for a last-ditch attempt. Create a PRE-SOAK solution by dissolving equal parts Biz® stain-activated booster, Clorox 2® powder, and Cascade® powder dishwasher detergent. By the time I get to this stage, it usually doesn't work. Bon chance!
