Removing Perfume Stains from Clothes and Fabrics

No one likes finding stains on their clothes and fabrics. Perfume stains, in particular, can be especially difficult to deal with. To help, here is a guide on how to remove perfume stains safely and effectively.

Step 1: Pretreat the Stain

The first step when dealing with a perfume stain is to pretreat it. Start by laying the fabric on a flat surface, and then place an absorbent cloth or piece of paper towel over the stain. Apply water, or a mix of water and detergent, to the back of the fabric so that it soaks through the absorbent cloth and onto the stain. Use your fingers or a blunt object to gently rub the fabric and work in the water. This will loosen and loosen up the stain before it is fully cleaned.

Step 2: Clean with Detergent

Once you have pretreated the stain, it is time to use detergent to further remove it. Again, begin by placing the fabric face-down on a flat surface. Apply some laundry detergent directly onto the stain, rubbing it in with your fingers or a soft brush. Leave the detergent to sit for 5-10 minutes before rinsing with cool water.

Step 3: Remove Any Residue

If there is still some residue from the stain remaining after you have treated it with detergent, you can use specialized spot removers like oxy-clean or professional spot-remover products. Apply a small amount of these products directly onto the stain, rubbing it in as before. Leave it for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off with cool water.

Step 4: Laundry as Usual

Finally, you should launder your clothes as you usually would. Make sure to follow any washing instructions on the clothing label!

Important Points:

  • Always test any cleaning products on an inconspicuous area of the clothes first.
  • Check all garments for colourfastness before laundering.
  • Avoid harsh rubbing or scrubbing when pre-treating or cleaning.
  • Use oxygen cleaning powders or store bought spot removers only after attempting to clean with laundry detergents.

In conclusion, removing perfume stains can be tricky but is completely doable if you follow these steps in order!
