With All This Rain - How Do You Get Those Dirty Road Splashes Off ?

w/e 24/06/19

We're now approaching summer and it appears that the traditional English summer "Showers" are even more persistant than ever - and the roads are getting dirty. Following "Murphy's Law" it's also the time that you're going to get splashed by a car, bus, bike or even just another pedestrian?

These grey and brown stains are often composed of sand, road soil, greases and oils mixed up in the water. Once dry the stain often sets inside the fibres because the fibres contract after naturally swelling when they were wet. To get rid of the stain completely the fibres have to be swelled up once again so that the soiling can be released. If you want to try with reagents available around the house then follow this process for best results:

Removing the Stain

Wet the stained area with a small amount of cold water, using either a dropper or a spoon will ensure you don't flood the cloth. Then add a mixture of dilute washing up liquid and tamp this in lightly, then leave it for a short while to fully penetrate the fibres. Next, add a 10% solution of ammonia and again tamp the area to get the reagent into the fibres, once again leaving the fabric for a short time while the ammonia mix penetrates the fibres. Now wash the garment in a cool or cold wash with normal detergents.

Before you put the garment into a dryer check to see if the stain is gone. If not then repeat the process. If it's still not gone after a second wash then dry naturally and dry clean, as the remaining stain is likely to be grease which is removed quite easily in the dry cleaning process.

If you would prefer to use a professional solution then take a look at the Citrus Gel treatment on our stain treatments page.

We're often asked by visitors to the site to find certain products used by professionals and to supply them through DrClean. Perhaps the most requested is anything that might clean an iron easily - and now we've found the perfect answer. Ez-Off is made in the USA and is designed for professionals to clean their commercial irons.

Here's how it's used;

  • To clean equipment squeeze a liberal amount of Ez-Off onto a heavy cotton cloth (an old terry towel works best).
  • While the equipment is HOT rub the soiled metal pressing or ironing surface with circular motions. After removing all the soil simply wipe with the clean end of the cloth.
  • If you want to keep equipment clean, slick and operating smoothly, clean with Ez-Off daily. This will ensure maximum speed with minimum interuptions.
