You can hardly meet a property owner who does not have a mean red wine or chocolate stain on the couch reminding him/her of the last family gathering or the housewarming party thrown last month. Well, it is always a good idea to cope with these kinds of marks right away, but this is not always possible. Even if you have a bunch of neglected old stains to clean, there’s no reason to worry. There are some tested ways to clean even the oldest stains from almost any surface provided that you have the know-how.
Cleaning dry blood stains – old blood stains may seem impossible to clean, but it is not exactly the case. All you have to do is soak the fabric in warm water that contains a product with enzymes for about one hour. Then just toss the treated fabric in the laundry. If the stain is still present you can use bleach as a last resort.
Cleaning butter stains – everyone knows that butter becomes liquid when heated. Using the same logic, you can simply clean the fabric on highest temperature. Don’t forget to check out the fabric’s tag, though. Going above the recommended max washing temperature usually leads to problems.
Homemade excellent stain removal – you can make your own super affordable and effective cleaning solution with hydrogen peroxide with dishwashing soap. If the stain requires more rubbing you can also add some baking soda! Get an appropriate plastic container and mix one part of your favourite dishwashing soap and two parts of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Stir good, apply onto the stained area and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Get rid of the stain with a damp cloth.
Grass stain removal approaches – to lift a grass stain off the carpet or any other fabric, scrub the stain with an old toothbrush to remove loose grass. After that, mix a solution of white vinegar, ammonia or methylated spirits. Use a sponge to scrub the stain, rinse well or wash, if possible. If the grass stain is big, it is best to arrange professional cleaning services and get the things done in no time at all.
Remove dry chocolate stains – chocolate stains are this sort of stains you should leave for a while before you proceed to clean them. Wait for the chocolate to harden. Afterwards, remove it with a dull knife. Then, apply a solution of dishwashing liquid and water. Gently clean the stain using a microfiber cloth or a sponge. Wash with warm water to clear the dishwashing liquid.
Giving up on stains is a mistake. Having said that, some types of stains are pretty tough, for sure. Even if you find yourself unable to clean them with homemade products, you can just ask for expert assistance and let specialists do their magic.
