Each of us from time to time faced with the problem spots.We will not for a long time to describe the various situations and immediately move on to the possible methods of solution.
1. Dry Cleaning.
Pros: 90% of the dry cleaning displays virtually any type of stain.
Disadvantages: high cost, the extra handling of the entire product, not the local stains with special chemicals, waste of time.Plus a very interesting question: if the stain on clothing, and furniture?Who will carry the sofa to the dry cleaners?You can, of course, cause a special service at the house, but the price of this service will be even higher.
2. Laundry (hand or in a washing machine) at home .
Pros: rapid removal of many types of stains, especially organic origin: grease, oil, etc.
Cons: detergents, especially the lower price category, despite the assurances of producers, can not cope with many types of stains.Dear powders have some great chances to cope with the problem spots.For example: try to put on white cotton band
few words about detergents .
big difference between expensive and cheap powders not.The price tag in the store reflects only the possibility of the producer to fund continuous TV advertising.To see this, just look independent tests authoritative journals in many cases powder, worth 50% cheaper better cope with spots than the "untwisted" brand names.It is necessary to take into account another factor: many well-known brands have the same roots, that is,on the market are the so-called umbrella brand giants 2-3 and buying any of these funds, we pay one way or another one manufacturer.Given the fact that manufacturers are spending on TV advertising than a million dollars a year, while the cost of sales promotion are included in the price, you can with some confidence say that we often do not pay for the goods, and for advertising (partly, of course), which they themselves look in large quantities.
Now of themselves spots and stain removers .
Stains can be divided into two types: organic (grease, oil) and inorganic (cosmetics, paint).Universal stain removers that remove all stains without exception - do not exist and can not exist.All manufacturers produced stain removers are classified into groups.For example, an ink stain remover will not be able to bring the ketchup stain on the carpet, and the soft spot remover for delicate fabrics - a spot of oil paint on the furniture.Here it is necessary to talk about the cleaning materials: For each material, there are special stain removers.Stain on the basis of high-octane gasoline is not suitable for wool sweater, and a universal stain remover is unlikely to cope with the wax stain on the polished furniture.
Always remember that it is desirable to display spots immediately, so as not to suffer with them in the future.Any fabric can theoretically shed - especially painted and surface with protective material - to change the color.To avoid these annoying troubles always prior to use, see the manufacturer's recommendations for the care of the product and, if possible, try to effect stain remover on an inconspicuous spot.
Dear customer (and yourself) a manufacturer always indicate temperature and other necessary data for the care and cleaning of the product.After that, read the instructions for use of stain remover.
Stain - it's chemistry, and chemistry, as we know, there is no absolutely harmless.If you know the composition of the material on which there was a spot, and the manufacturer's recommendations for the care, the choice of stain remover will be an easy task.Fresh stains are always completely removed (as possible) just before washing, after all much easier to bring the washing halo from the spot and remains of the stain remover than smears.Always follow the recommended temperature.If after cleaning the stain is not completely removed, repeat the process.When fading out different spots on the furniture and carpets always try out on an inconspicuous spot resistance of paints products.
Stains on upholstered furniture and carpets should be removed after a thorough analysis of the situation and not nervous (preferably oxygen stain removers do it, because they are less likely to affect the paint).Always (if available) under the spot enclose an absorbent white cloth in several layers - in most cases just the spot goes on it, and clean surface is clean.The treatment spot should start not with the center and the edges, otherwise the spot "will spread" across the surface, and will remain "pretty" uniformly colored aura.After cleaning with clean water (absorbent sponge or a white cloth) thoroughly remove all remnants of the stain remover that does not get a new spot.
If you care about the skin of the hands - wear when cleaning household rubber gloves.Many stain removers have a pungent odor - possibly spend cleaning in a ventilated area and do not inhale vapors funds.Some stain removers flammable - smoke while cleaning or to clean near a hot stove is strictly prohibited.
The final bell advice - always wash your hands after applying the stain remover.It often happens that a suitable stain remover on hand at the right time does not appear.At such moments, you can taste-tested folk remedies.I warn you once - we do not recommend, but only give advice, published online - for the quality of cleaning and other consequences of our shop is not responsible:
