Easy Hacks For Removing Different Types Of Stubborn Stains From Woolens

All of us have accidents, and sometimes they involve spilling fruit juice or ink on our favorite woolens. So how to remove stains from woolen garments?

It is not hard to care for wool, and this natural fiber can resist both stains and odor, meaning woolens require less washing as compared to garments made from other fibers. But just in case you spill something on your favorite woolen garment and want to remove the stain, here are some handy tips that can make your clothes look brand new in no time.

Tips to remove grease, sauce, or butter stains

If there is a grease, sauce, or butter stain, you have to first scrape the stain’s surface with a blunt knife or spoon to eliminate excess oil. Use a heated iron over multiple layers of tissue to absorb the excess grease or oil. If needed, take a lint-free cloth and soak it in white spirit or grease remover. Gently dab the lint-free cloth on the affected area to blot the solvent. Then let it dry.

Tips to remove fruit juice stains

Rinse the drink as much as you can with clean water, and then add a gentle Woolmark-approved detergent in lukewarm water. After washing, if the stain remains, create a solution with three parts rubbing alcohol or surgical spirit and one part cold water. Use this solution to dab on the stain. Blot the excess liquid and wash the garment with a mild Woolmark-approved detergent.

Tips to remove makeup, shoe polish, or lipstick stains

Grab the edge of a cloth and soak it in spot-cleaning spray or white spirit and rub it on the stain. Next, take an absorbent towel or cloth and gently press it to absorb the excess solvent, and leave it to dry. Then wash the garment with a Woolmark-approved detergent.

Tips to remove ball-point or ink pen stains

For stains caused by ball-point pens, dab on the spot gently with a lint-free cloth dipped in rubbing alcohol or surgical spirit. Gently press an absorbent towel to absorb the excess solvent.

For writing ink (pens other than ball-point), take a lint-free cloth and dip it in a diluted solution of Woolmark-approved detergent. Gently dab on the affected area and then use an absorbent towel to absorb the excess solvent. Then wash your garment manually with a Woolmark-approved detergent.

Treat stubborn stains at home with these simple DIY hacks, leaving your woolens looking brand new.
