How To Shift Those Stubborn Stains

How To Shift Those Stubborn Stains

Laundry – we do it almost every day, yet it can still seem impossible to get right. Here are some tips on how to make the most of every load of washing.

How To Shift Those Stubborn Stains

From serious stains that seem to never shift to fading colours or damp smells, let’s take a look at some common laundry problems and advise you of the steps to take to solve them.


  •          First, treat the stain as rapidly as you possibly can. Rinse the garment thoroughly to remove any excess, and then turn the item inside out, putting a piece of kitchen towel directly underneath the stain. Dab the stain with liquid detergent and massage it in, so you are pushing it out through the other side onto the paper towel. Then Rinse before running the clothes through the washing machine. Use a higher temperature than usual, if the label says it’s okay.


  •          Take care not to overload the washing machine, as this can stop items from being washed properly. Allow about a hand-width gap between the top of the laundry and the drum.


  •          Use the right amount of detergent for the level of soiling: a full load of washing needs a full dose of detergent, more if you live in an area with hard water.
