• The nature and age of any stain, combined with the winestaincolour of the item, will have a great effect on the outcome of the stain removal.
• Sometimes the dye of the cloth, such as linen or silk, can be more soluble than the stain and in trying to remove the stain, the dye will be removed.
• Clear drinks such as lemonade and champagne can be blotted away. However, the residual sugar content will remain and may turn the area yellow or brown.
• Rubbing a stain on silk, wool or linen will affect the dye of the cloth and will lighten the area, which will become more evident when cleaned.
• NEVER rub a stain. Blot with a white absorbent cloth either side of the garment.
• Always tell your dry cleaner what caused the stain and what steps have been taken to try and remove it.
