Spills, spots and stains. Day ruiners. Expensive, unpredictable day ruiners. 

You can't escape them, but we don't want them to destroy your favourite clothes. Armed with our Stain Remover and Laundry Detergent, we've pulled together a little bit of information to help you handle any stain like a pro. 

Your best stain removal outcomes are achieved by applying a solid line of defence and tailoring your specific approach to the different types and sizes of stains. 

So, know your stain so you then know the best way to get rid of it for good!

5 STEP STAIN REMOVAL:

  1. SPRAY: Spot-treat the stain as soon as possible and for as long as possible. For trickier stains, it's best to spray with Stain Remover, then agitate the area to help aid in lifting it. (Using the nozzle of our Stain Remover Bottle is perfect for this task). 

  2. DELAY: The longer you're able to leave the stain remover before washing, the better the outcome will be. Tip: Most laundry machines have a time delay setting, so you can spray your stain, set a time delay and walk away. This 2-step approach will remove most dye-based stains and stains on wool, silk and other delicate fabrics.

  3. DOUBLE UP: For stubborn stains, such as oil and protein-based stains, we recommend following the steps above, in addition to adding a squirt of laundry detergent directly to the affected area (see index below for types of stains).

  4. WASH AWAY: Wash with an enzyme inclusive detergent, like Dirt Laundry Detergent. This step is critical for your funkier stains (think protein and oil stains) as the enzymes 'eat' biological and protein matter.

  5. Once you've washed your stain treated garment, check it as soon as your wash cycle has finished. If it's super stubborn, avoid what's left of the stain from setting by repeating the process while it's still wet.

With the right laundry products and some simple steps, stains don't have to be a crushing aspect of living a messy life. So slurp on, busy friend—this one's for you.
