Act quickly: fresh stains make stain removal an easier task.
Follow the directions on any stain removal product and follow the washing instructions on stained clothes. Getting the stains out won’t make much difference if you ruin the clothing in the process.
Test stain removal in a hidden area. You want to check colorfastness before applying any treatment.
Remove stains from the back. Place the stained garment with the stain upside down on top of a clean white cloth. Apply stain treatment to the back of the stain. Your goal is to remove the stain from the clothing instead of making it travel all the way through the other side. Make sure you move the stained clothing to a fresh spot as the stain begins to remove itself from the garment and onto the cloth.
Be wary of even color removal with bleach. Bleaching only one stained spot on a garment may result in uneven color removal for the entire garment. Consider using the appropriate bleach listed on the clothing tag to bleach the entire garment.
Wash stain-treated items. Remember to thoroughly wash items that have been treated with stain removal-products.
