So you’ve spilled red wine on your favorite blouse? It happens. Here are some quick tips to get those nasty, costly stains out of your fav clothing.
- Contrary to popular belief, soap does not get stains out. In fact, rubbing a stain with a bar of soap will probably set the stain and make it worse.
- Until you’ve tried all possible techniques to remove your stain, never iron the piece of stained clothing. But be sure to take care of the stain as soon as possible- time is your worst enemy.
-If you purchased a stain remover, test it somewhere that isn’t visible to ensure that it doesn’t affect the color of the garment.
-If your stain is protein-based, never use hot water! Hot water will set any protein stain.
