Let's talk about stains!

Stains fall into four simple categories
  • protein
  • oil-based
  • tannin
  • dye

We'll start with protein stains this week.

Protein stains (such as baby formula, eggs and urine) require cold water because hot water will actually cook the protein setting the stain even more!

So, be sure to use only cold water when washing out those protein stains.

Next week we'll tackle oil-based stain concepts!
