Stain Removal Guide

Stain Removal Guide

Washer A word about babies... Stain removal procedures often require the use of heavy duty detergents which can irritate baby’s skin. Remember to re-wash clothing using a gentle detergent specially formulated for babies, or run the load through an extra rinse cycle.

BABY FOOD - Rinse in cool water. Pre-treat stain with a paste made of powdered enzyme detergent and water, or use a liquid enzyme detergent. Allow to stand 30 minutes. Launder using hottest water safe for fabric.

BABY FORMULA - Soak in a gallon of cool water with 2 tablespoons of enzyme detergent for 30 minutes. Launder in hottest water safe for fabric. Difficult stains may require chlorine or all-fabric bleach.

BALLPOINT INK - Sponge stain with rubbing alcohol. Rub a small amount of detergent into stain. Launder as usual using chlorine bleach if care label allows; otherwise, use all-fabric bleach.

BLOOD - Rinse fresh stains under cold running water, rubbing with a bar of soap. Rinse and launder. For dried stains, soak in a gallon of warm water with 2 tablespoons of enzyme detergent. If stain persists, use a chlorine or all-fabric bleach.

CHEWING GUM - Harden gum with an ice cube, then gently scrape with a dull knife or credit card to remove as much gum as possible. Place face down on paper towels and sponge with dry-cleaning solvent. Rinse well and launder.

CHOCOLATE = Pre-treat stain with a paste made from powdered enzyme detergent and water, or use a liquid enzyme detergent. Allow to stand for 30 minutes. Launder with appropriate bleach and hottest water safe for fabric.

CRAYON - Place stained surface down on a pad of paper towels, spray with WD-40 ® and let stand for a few minutes. Turn fabric and spray the other side. Let stand. Apply liquid hand dish detergent and work into stain until removed. Use a paper towel to absorb stain. Hand wash the item in the detergent making sure the WD-40 ® odor is removed. Launder as usual.

FRUIT JUICE - Soak in cool water. Rub detergent into stain. Launder with chlorine bleach if care label allows; otherwise, use all-fabric bleach.

GRASS - Apply liquid enzyme detergent directly onto stain or make a paste of powdered enzyme detergent and water and work into dampened stain. Let stand 5 minutes. Launder as usual using chlorine or all-fabric bleach.

GROUND IN DIRT - Brush off as much loose dirt as possible. Rinse stain, placing fabric face down under cool running water. Rub liquid laundry detergent into stain, or use a paste made of powdered detergent and water. Allow to stand 30 minutes. Launder as usual using appropriate bleach.

MOMMY’S MAKEUP - Pre-treat with a stain remover, gently rubbing into stain. Launder as usual using hottest water safe for fabric. Use appropriate bleach. If grease stain remains, soak in warm water with pre-treat product. Rinse and re-launder.

All cleaning processes involve some risk. Adverse or unexpected reactions (color change, color run, etc.) can occur. The remedies

Laundry Tips...

  • Always check care labels for special washing instructions.
  • Treat stains as soon as possible - fresh stains are much easier to remove.
  • Air dry stain-treated clothes. Dryer heat can permanently set some stains.
  • Be persistent! Repeat procedure if stain remains.
  • Always test stain removal method on a hidden area of garment, especially fluorescent, neon and khaki colors which are less colorfast.
  • Detergents containing enzymes help dissolve protein stains such as baby formula, blood, egg or grass.
  • Liquid chlorine bleach helps brighten and remove stains on many whites and colorfast washables. Never use on wool, silk or leather. Non-chlorine bleach is gentler and safe to use on almost all colored washables.
  • Remember, cloth diapers must be laundered separately.
  • Finally, laundry is a grown-up's job. Keep laundry products out of reach of children!
