Get Rid Of Stains From Your Shirts

You know what it’s like. Your favourite shirt soiled with an unsightly stain.

Often you don’t even know where it came from and, even worse, you are unsure of the best method to remove it.

With a little help from your friends at Master Dry Cleaners you can ensure your shirt is returned to the best possible condition.

There are two main factors to consider when faced with the challenge of removing stains from your clothes: timeliness and the removal process itself.

Speed Is Of The Essence

A fresh stain is much easier to remove than an old, ingrained one. So, get to work quickly to tackle the problem. If left too late stains can oxidise bonding chemically with the fabric and making it next to impossible to remove satisfactorily.

Given that is not always appropriate to whip off the item of clothing as soon as a spillage occurs, damage mitigation is crucial when out and about.

Applying water immediately to the stain and dabbing the worst of it out will normally not completely solve the problem, however it will alleviate some of the worst of it until you can get the clothes to the dry cleaners.

Also, don’t fret about the damp fabric drawing more attention to your food-based faux pas – damp clothes are way more preferable than permanently ruined clothes!

Stain Removal

Follow these important steps to remove stains and effectively restore your shirt to best condition possible:

Choose a stain removal product and apply to the affected area.

Often it is best to apply to the inside of the item of clothing. This is so that if any discolouration occurs the worst effects will be concealed.

Leave the product on according to the directions on the packaging. Normally 30 minutes is sufficient time.

Then, rinse off with water before placing it in your washing machine or, for best results, taking it to your dry cleaners.

Following these steps will go a long way to restoring your shirt to its original condition.

However, at times stains will damage fabric beyond what you can manage yourself. It is best in these instances to speak to our staff for advice.

With our extensive expertise in the industry, if it can be cleaned, it will be cleaned, quickly and professionally.
