The Damage Free Way to Remove Clothing Stains

As adults, we spend every waking moment trying to avoid staining our clothes. From grease to ink, there are a whole range of culprits just waiting to catch us on a bad day and ruin our favourite top. In fact, the last thing you want to do is subject your clothing to harmful and harsh chemicals in order to remove these stains, especially when you have invested in the quality of your attire. Luckily there are methods that can be implemented to remove stains without destroying your clothing in the process. Read on to find out more…


In order to maintain the quality of your clothing it is important to ensure that you use a suitable stain removing detergent instead of the cheapest stuff on the shelf. In fact, many stain removing products that are biological and enzyme based are not suitable for silk or wool despite their excellent stain removing properties. To make sure you are using the right product, consult a professional or read the label.

Be Gentle

When we spot a stain, our immediate response is to start scrubbing it, however this is not the way to go about the situation when you want to keep the clothing quality pristine. In fact, scrubbing can damage the fibres and made them more prone to threading and other kinds of wear and tear. Instead, work the detergent into the clothing gently.


Using this chemical is always a risk since it can be particularly strong and harmful. Whilst it is excellent for stain removal, some bleaches may not be suitable for certain fabrics. Read the bottle to see whether it mentions its suitability for colour fast fabrics or whites and go from there. If you are still not 100% sure it is best to spot test it on a small part of the item first.

Read the Label

As one of the most ignored aspects of clothing, the label will be able to tell you more about how the item should be washed than the internet ever can. From the suitable temperatures to the chemicals you should avoid placing on it, reading the label is important as it can help you make informed stain removal choices.
