It's inevitable. Whether you’re the cleanest or most untidy person on the planet, at some point you’re going to stain something. And that something will be expensive. Just relax – most common stains are easily removed.

Take action:


A few general guidelines: always check the inside labels before washing a delicate item of any kind – some materials have very specific washing instructions; always wash in the hottest temperature allowed by the fabric's inner label; according to the severity of the stain and the nature of the fabric, soak the area for as long as possible before washing; if stains are stubborn, don’t give up – repeating the removal process will usually work.
