A Natural Way to Remove Stains on Clothes
by Steven Williams Cleaning services specialist
You just stained your favourite T-shirt? Well, this is embarrassing, but I will try to make the things less stressful and tell you that you can use only natural products to clean the stain and return the good look of your clothing. There just a very few occasions in which you have to refer to a dry cleaner, but very often you can use just several natural elements for this mission. A little known fact is that there are occasions in which usage of natural products will remove a stain faster and more effectively. Using natural compounds is necessary, if you are allergic to something or if you have kids or pets in your home. According to cleaning professionals such as cleaners based in Peckham you should be patient when using natural products as they need more time to give visible results than commercial cleaners. Often you will have to apply a second coat for best results.
To get rid of sweat and urine stains on clothes, upholstery and fabrics you can use vinegar. For tough stains mix the vinegar with water and baking soda. You have to mix enough of each ingredient in order to make a sticky paste. Then apply it to the stained spot and allow it to sit for about half an hour. At the end wash with cold water and soap and the stains should be gone.
For cleaning general stains on your clothes, add peroxide to the normal washing cycle. Additionally, the peroxide will help you to whiten your clothing. Applying the product directly on the clothes is also possible. This will help to loosen the stains. An important tip is to allow the clothing to stay for not less than half an hour before any rubbing or blotting. If you try to do it, the cleaning mission will have opposite effect- the stain will be spread and make the cleaning harder.
Stains from grease, oil and food can be treated with alcohol or a product which contains alcohol. The cleaning process is pretty simple. All you have to do is to damp the area, allow it to sit for a while and blot the spot.
