General Stain Removal

care-labels-1413454993

The following is a general guide to cleaning everyday stains.  Materialised can take no responsibility for damage caused by use of these suggestions.

Always follow manufacturers’ cleaning instructions.

Often stains can be removed or results improved if blotted up immediately, while still wet or fresh. Use white towels or absorbent cloth. Keep blotting and changing the absorbent material until no more of the spillage or coloured matter is being removed. Pre-test all solutions on an inconspicuous area. Hold a white towel against the tested area for a few seconds and examine to make sure no colour has transferred.  When using liquid cleaners work from the outer ring of the stain, toward the centre.  Always rinse with clear water and blot dry to finish, as detergent residue tends to attract soiling.  If in any doubt, contact a cleaning specialist.

Click the stain and it will take you to the cleaning suggestions.
