A coat or jacket can attract many stubborn stains, from mud, to coffee, and ink stains, and it can be tough to know where to start with stain removal.
This guide will take you through how you can remove those nasty marks without damaging the fabric, so your winter wear doesn’t end up at the back of the wardrobe. Whether your stain is fresh or has been dried on for days, we have the solution to removing them.
MUD AND SOIL
Before you begin to remove a mud or soil stain, you need to let it dry. If you try to tackle it while it is still fresh, you could potentially spread the stain, making it much bigger. Once the mud or soil has dried, scrape the larger lumps off so you are left with a smooth surface to work on. Spray the affected area with a generous amount of Spray 'n Wash Trigger product, and cover it completely. After five minutes, massage the product into the stain. Once you see an improvement, run the stain under a hot tap.
There is a surprisingly large amount of science behind why coffee stains are so tricky to get out. The reason is that coffee particles clump together as spheres, which means that the liquid evaporates very quickly and evenly from the outside, leaving behind the concentrated particles in the middle – deposited on clothing fibers.
If you get a splash of coffee on your jacket, soak the area with cold water as soon as you can. Then, when you get home (if you’re out), rub Spray 'n Wash Max Trigger into the stain, letting it set and getting to work. If your jacket is machine washable, then wash it with detergent to get rid of any faint marks that have been left behind. If not, carefully rinse the area with cold water, until you can rub the area without seeing any suds.
There you have it, a guide to some of the most common stains that can mark your jackets. Now you’ll be able to remove ink, coffee, and mud and soil stains without a worry.
