1 Red Wine:

Red wine stains should be immediately washed off with soda water and salt to prevent staining.

2 Perspiration:

For new stains, wash the cloth with a liquid detergent. If the stain does not come out, sponge the area with a solution of 1 tbs ammonia and half a cup of water. For older stains, sponge area with one tbs white vinegar and half a cup of water. Wash items with a bleach-free detergent in warm water.

3 Ink:

Apply a small amount of alcohol to the spot and blot with paper towel to absorb the ink. Repeat until as much of the ink as possible transfers to a paper towel. Then pre-treat with liquid detergent or spray a pre-treatment and let the treatment set for 20-30 minutes. Wash with the detergent amount prescribed for the water level you are using.

4 Chocolate and cocoa:

Soak the garment in cold water for two hours, and then wash it in hot water with liquid detergent. For residual grease stains, use a dry-cleaning solvent.

5 Tea and coffee:

Sponge stains with cold water. Next, wash the garment using detergent and bleach.
