Stain Removal - Stain Prevention

Stain Prevention

If a stain has "set", it has become chemically bonded to the material that it has stained, and cannot be removed without damaging the material itself. It is therefore important to avoid setting stains that one wants to remove. This can be done by avoiding heat (by not pressing or ironing the stain), sponging stained materials as quickly as possible, using the correct solvent (some solvents will act as catalysts on certain substances and cause the stain to set more quickly), and avoiding rubbing the stain.

Famous quotes containing the words prevention and/or stain:

    ... if this world were anything near what it should be there would be no more need of a Book Week than there would be a of a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)

    Then suddenly the noon turns afternoon
    And afternoon like an ill-written page
    Will fade, until the very stain of light
    Gathers in all the venom of the night
    The equilibrium of the thirtieth age.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
