- Apply a small amount of dry-cleaning solvent or alcohol to the stain. Use small amounts to prevent any possible spreading of stain. Blot quickly using soft, absorbent, white material such as paper towel or napkin. Dry-cleaning solvent and alcohol are commonly available at grocery, drug and hardware stores. Do not use flammable solvents like gasoline, lighter fluid, etc.
- Apply a small amount of Paint-Oil-and-Grease (POG) remover (available in hardware stores). Leave for 8-10 minutes. To remove POG, apply a small amount of dry-cleaning solvent and blot it using soft, absorbent, white material such as paper towel or napkin.
- Repeat step 1& 2
- Weigh down the stain with towels dampened with dry-cleaning solvent and leave for a few hours. Blot with solvent. Ensure that the area is well ventilated.
- Mix half a teaspoon of a clear, neutral pH, non-bleach dishwashing liquid with one cup of warm water. Apply it to the stain and leave for 5-10 minutes for best results. Rinse with warm water. You may have to rinse it several times to completely remove the residues. Never use automatic dishwasher detergent because it may contain bleaches that harm the textiles. Never use a laundry detergent because it may contain fluorescent dyes that may affect the dyes.
- Mix two tablespoons of household ammonia in one cup of water. Apply it to the stain and leave it for less than a minute. Blot using soft, absorbent, white material such as paper towel or napkin.
- Rinse with water and blot completely using soft, white, absorbent material.
- If the stain is not removed completely, call your local FIBER CLEAN at once.
