Stain Removal Guide - H

By Kimberly Duncan

Hair Dye Stains
Hair dye stains are quick to become permanent, so make sure to treat the stained area immediately. Soak the area in a mixture of cold water and liquid detergent. Leave the stained clothing submerged until you see the stains gradually being removed. If the stain is still very visible and persistent, you can leave the fabric soaked overnight. Wash and rinse off with warm water afterwards.

Honey Stains
Honey stains on fabric are difficult to remove if not attended to immediately. Scoop off the excess honey on the surface using a spoon. Then hold the fabric under cold running water to separate the stain from the fabric. If the stain is still visible, soak the garment in warm soapy water using strong detergent or bleaching fluid. Launder and dry as usual.

If the honey falls on carpets or rugs, you may do the same procedure above. However, after soaking the carpet or rug in warm soapy water, rinse it off with warm water. Prepare a solution made of water mixed with one tablespoon of ammonia. Get a sponge and dip it in the solution. Dab the wet sponge gently on the stained areas of the rug.
