Get ready to embark on a stain-busting adventure like no other!
How to Remove Almost Any Stain (Yes, Really!)
- Act quickly! The sooner you treat a stain, the more likely it is to come out. Even so, not all stains can be removed.
- Be sure to blot (not rub) any excess liquid immediately.
- Be sure to check for colorfastness before treating the stain.
- A stain remover should always be applied to the underside of the stain. Place stain down on a clean paper towel, then treat from the opposite side to push stain off the fabric and onto the paper towel.
- For solid stains, such as wax, remove as much of the solid as possible with a table knife before treating.
- Avoid vigorously rubbing the fabric as this will remove the colour pigment of the garment.
- Do not spot wash without reading instructions below.
- Be patient. Some stains take a while to remove. If you follow the steps below but the stain is still visible after washing, just repeat the process again before drying. Heat drying will set stains, so avoid drying until the stain is gone!
Chapter 1: The Quest Begins - Gather Your Tools
Every great adventure requires preparation. Arm yourself with an array of stain-fighting tools to conquer those pesky marks on your Wolf Bear Collective garments. Equip yourself with a soft-bristle brush, a mild detergent, baking soda, white vinegar, a clean cloth, and a dash of determination.
Chapter 2: The Encounter - Treating Common Stains
In the realm of stain-busting adventures, common foes lurk at every corner. Prepare to face off against the likes of coffee, tea, ink, and grease stains. Fear not, brave warriors! Here are some battle-tested tactics to combat them:
Coffee & Tea Stains: Start by gently blotting the stain with a clean cloth to remove any excess liquid. Mix a teaspoon of mild detergent with warm water and dab it onto the affected area. Leave it for a few minutes, then rinse with cold water. For stubborn stains, apply a paste of baking soda and water, leave it overnight, and rinse it off the next day.
Ink Stains: Swiftly apply rubbing alcohol to the stain, using a clean cloth. Blot the stain gently, ensuring you don't spread it further. Rinse with cold water and launder the garment as usual.
Grease Stains: Sprinkle baking soda generously onto the stain, gently dabbing it in. Allow it to sit for a while, then brush off the baking soda. Apply a small amount of dish soap directly onto the stain, working it in with your fingertips. Rinse with cold water and launder the garment.
Chapter 3: Uncharted Territory - Conquering Stubborn Stains
Sometimes, stains may prove to be more challenging, requiring an extra dose of determination and ingenuity. Venture into uncharted territories armed with these specialized techniques:
Red Wine Stains: Blot the stain immediately with a clean cloth to absorb as much of the liquid as possible. Mix a tablespoon of dish soap and a teaspoon of white vinegar in a cup of water. Dab the solution onto the stain, working from the outer edges towards the center. Rinse with cold water and repeat the process until the stain disappears.
Grass Stains: Create a potent concoction of equal parts white vinegar and water. Apply it directly to the stain and let it sit for a few minutes. Scrub the area gently with a soft-bristle brush, then rinse with cold water. Launder as usual, and bid farewell to those grassy remnants.
Chapter 4: The Triumph - Preservation and Beyond
After your relentless battles against the stains, it's time to celebrate your triumphs. Remember to wash your Wolf Bear Collective garments following the care instructions provided.
