Advice on Stains

  • The nature and age of any stain, combined with the colour and construction of the fabric very much dictates the end result.
  • The dye in some fabrics is more soluble than the stain. Removing the stain will remove the dye.
  • Developed Stains: Spillages of drinks not containing strong dyes, such as lemonade and champagne, can be blotted away from fabrics and appear to have disappeared. However the residual sugar content is at work in your garment. Left unattended for a period of time, a yellow or brown stain will appear, this is due to oxidation of the sugar, similar to a half eaten apple.
  • Early on in its life a stain will develop with the help of any heat source, such as pressing. The resulting developed stain can be permanent.
