Stains. by Kid on 2002-07-04 01:15:52
I've got a stain on the best trousers in the world. Its not new, and it's not even a real colour, or a real problem. But it irritates me a little. Are there any methods you guys have that are a bit 'special'? None of the traditional ones, thanks, nor Vanish, because they didn't work.
See. I really like these trousers.

|Make a paste of water and automatic dishwashing powder. Apply it generously to the stained area and allow it to remain 24 hours without drying out. Before doing this find a small area to test it on (eg on the inside seam) to make sure it doesn't affect the color.|

Do you know what caused the stain? The original composition makes a difference. If it's a protein-based stain, enzyme compositions can work well (e.g. Biz). If it's oil-based, you need a grease cutter, like Spray n' Wash. Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the range of products in the UK. However, Tommie is absolutely correct: test it on an inside seam first to avoad damage.

|My dad and his wife are moving to N. Carolina and in the garage they found four boxes of my stuff from years ago -- books, old love letters, journals et al. I went page by page, piece of paper by piece of paper... and then -- I came across a two-page pull-out section from: Family Circle magazine (3/16/82). It's titled: "The Best Stain Removal Guide Ever" by Al Ubell. It's simple and self-explanatory, those who've responded to your query earlier were quite correct in needing more info from you. You really DO need to know two things: 1) what type of stain is it? and, 2) what is the fabric? Not knowing either of these I can't write you here with the chart I've got on-hand. Check their archives??? Good luck! d.-|
