Cleaning Instructions for Fabric Stains

Successful removal of stains from fabric depends on the basic principle of not allowing the stain to become set. A stain should be removed at the first possible opportunity. Different materials require different stain removers. Use of an incorrect remover may damage or even destroy the fabric. If the stain is known to be of a non-greasy nature, sponging with cold water, detergent and bleach may be all that is necessary, and should be followed by thorough rinsing in clean water.

For specific stains refer to the following list:

CLEANING METHODS:

  1. Immediately clean soiled fabric with detergent/bleach/water solution followed by thorough rinse with clean water.
  2. DO NOT USE benzaldehyde, trichloroethylene, chloroform, benzene, acetone, methyl acetate or toluene based cleaning agents.
  3. From manufacturer’s instructions.

IMPORTANT:  The above information is based upon data obtained by our manufacturer and/or independent testing. There is no guarantee of success and results may vary from condition to condition. The above information is furnished upon the condition that the person receiving it shall make their own tests to determine the suitability for their own particular situation.
