Before You Start

Don’t forget – act fast. The sooner you try to remove the stain after it happens, the better your chance of complete success.

Colourfastness

Before beginning your wash, it is important to determine whether or not your clothes are colourfast, otherwise you may end up with a messy wash with dyes running into other clothes! We recommend that you check the care label and do the colourfastness test.

Soaking

If an item of clothing is heavily stained it may need soaking before you wash it.
