It can be very disheartening to look down at a new shirt or a favorite pair of pants only to notice you have accidentally spilled something on the fabric. You might try frantically to wipe at the spill with a napkin, just to spread the stain around and making it worse than before. In cases like this, you may be tempted just to throw the garment out and give up.
Although some spots wipe away easily, many require specific cleaning methods. In many cases, stains on fabric can be successfully removed or reduced by using an appropriate cleaning method. Whether you need to clean a stain on a table cloth, furniture upholstery, or your shirt, there are certain methods you can use to get the best, most successful cleaning results.
To clean fabrics and remove stains, follow these instructions:
Whatever kind of fabric you are dealing with, be sure you don't dry it in the dryer unless you are certain the stain is gone (or as gone as it can get). Once you put stained fabric through the dryer, the stain will be set in and may be impossible to remove.
