Treating a Stain

Our aim in this section is to help you remove all types of stain on any type of fabric. To do that you need to gain a certain amount of knowledge. Knowledge about:

  1. The stain - what it's most likely to be if you don't know
  2. What might remove it - using chemicals or products that will react with the stain to help flush it away.
  3. The Fabric (or material) - and how that might react to the chemicals you're about to use and how it reacts tp manipulation.

By using the menu on the left you should be able to find the information you need, about the stain, chemicals and fabrics.

We hope to give different solutions to the same problem, so you have more than one avenue to travel down. In general we will have professional reagents that will do the job, these have been tested over time to react with stains and have been formulated to be as kind as possible on fabrics and materials. However, we will also give the traditional removal method, using base chamicals in their raw form.

Please note that whenever you use base chemicals or a made-up formula on a fabric there is a chance of causing damage. Take care, test an unseen area of the material and alway follow our mantra....
