General Stain Removal Directions
- Treat spills and stains IMMEDIATELY. The longer a spot remains, the more difficult it is to remove.
- Always pretest fabric in an out-of-the way area to guard against color transfer or color change.
- Do not over wet. Blot frequently. Do not rub or brush. Work from outer edge of spot toward the center to prevent rings.
- After stain is removed rinse with clear water, then absorb all moisture with white towels. Place a thick layer of towels over wet area and weight with heavy object. Place aluminum foil between towels and weight to prevent transfer of color from weight. Check periodically, rewet and change if toweling is stained.
