Fabric CarePlease read the fabric cleaning codes on the previous page for applicable instructions before proceeding with any of the following helpful hints.
- Blot (do not rub) liquid spills immediately.
- Pick up (do not wipe or rub) semi-solid spills (such as butter) immediately, carefully using the edge of a knife.
- Not sure what caused a spot? Try clean, cool water first. Do not start out with hot water, which will set blood and other substances. Do not start out with detergents or solvents that may remove fabric color.
- Before using any cleaning agent, test a small amount on a hidden area of the fabric to be sure it is color fast.
- Diluted ammonia or hydrogen peroxide: 1 tablespoon of household ammonia or peroxide to 1 cup of cold water.
- Diluted detergent: 1 teaspoon mild laundry detergent to 1 cup of lukewarm water.
- Diluted bleach: 1 tablespoon liquid bleach to 1 cup of cold water.
Sponge promptly with cool water. If spot remains, gently work in undiluted liquid detergent. Rinse with cool water. If stain remains, sponge with rubbing alcohol after testing a small area of the fabric for colourfastness. For tested colourfast fabrics, you may use diluted chlorine bleach or hydrogen peroxide to remove any traces of the stain.
Sponge promptly with cool water. Remove any traces of the spot by sponging with hydrogen peroxide or diluted chlorine bleach. If bloodstain has been ‘set’ by heat, it may be impossible to remove without professional help.
