stain removal guidelines
Kristene Home Couture offers the following guidelines for removing stains that may show up on your napkins with normal use. Grease, wine and other foods may leave stains that are more difficult to remove. Dry cleaning is always an option, or you may choose to use one of the following methods. Please note that Kristene Home Couture does not guarantee that any of the following methods will remove stains from your napkins.
For stain prevention, wash items as soon as possible after they are used.
Remove dried matter with a dull knife before treating the stain.
Try to blot stains and not rub them in. Rinse with cold water as soon as possible, then treat with a gentle liquid laundry detergent, grease fighting dish liquid (such as Dawn) or baby shampoo.
Consider using a commercial stain remover, but do remember to thoroughly read the instructions first.
For red stains, including wine, soft drinks, cranberry juice and fruit punch, pour white wine on the stain as soon as possible. This will neutralize the red wine proteins. Afterward, you may also pour salt on both sides of the stain, let sit, then launder the item as usual.
Remember that heat will permanently set stains so do not put the item in the dryer if the stain is still visible. If a stain persists, take the item to the dry cleaner.
For lipstick and greasy stains, remove excess then treat the area with WD40. This will allow grease to remove grease. Wash with a grease fighting dish liquid (such as Dawn) then launder as usual.
For coffee stains, immediately flush with club soda or cool water.
