4 golden rules of stain removal you need to know!

1. Absorb it: First lift off or soak up as much of the staining substance as possible. Use absorbents such as talcum powder or paper towels.

2. Dissolve it: Residue that can't be absorbed needs to be dissolved. Different substances have differing ways they dissolve.

3. Use a detergent: Greasy or fatty stains, such as gravy, will not dissolve in water.

4. Use a chemical reaction: If none of the above work you need a chemical reaction. These are chemicals such as bleach and enzymes.
