Common Summer Fabric Stains – and How to Remove Them

One of our favorite aspects of the summer season is, of course, the food. While we all like whetting our appetites, we don’t like it when the food stains our best summer attire. The good news is that even the most tenacious Christmas fabric stains can be removed, allowing you to save your clothes. In this article, we’ll look at how to get rid of three of the most prevalent stains that occur over the summer season.

3 Typical Summer Fabric Stains and How to Get Rid of Them

  • Grease Marks

If you need to clean your kitchen aprons or any stray grease spilled on your clothes while making Christmas dinner, don’t throw anything away. Soak the fabric in a pre-treatment product once you discover a grease stain. After that, dab a heavy-duty detergent into the stain before washing the clothes in the machine. Before drying, check to see if the stain has been gone once the wash cycle has finished. If it isn’t, repeat the technique above, and try using a cleaning solvent as well. If you dry clothing before a stain is completely cleaned, the stain will embed into the fabric.

  • Chocolate

Because we all love to eat chocolate throughout the summer season, there’s a reason why so many New Year’s resolutions involve dieting and fitness. When chocolate gets on our clothes, though, it can be difficult to remove. But don’t worry, it’s easy to get rid of. To loosen and lift stains, immerse the piece of clothing in a solution of soap, detergent, and vinegar. After that, a standard washing cycle should be more than enough to get rid of the rest of the stain.

  • Wine that is red in color.

Red wine spills are no joke, whether you’re at an office party or just having a glass to end another fun summer evening, and you’ll need to act quickly to save any clothing that it got on. Begin by blotting the stain with a towel or paper towel as soon as possible to absorb as much of the stain as possible. Then, take some salt from your kitchen and sprinkle it over the exposed portion of your clothing. Allow the salt to settle for 15 minutes before vacuuming it up. To finish, wash your garments with detergent in warm water.
