The dreaded mistake! Putting a coloured item in a white wash load. The best way to get rid of the colour is to soak them for as long as you can with an Earth Breeze sheet. Some washing machines have a soak programme but, if yours doesn’t, use a bath tub, bucket or sink and this will help lift out the colour.
Lemon is a natural bleach and removes stains off whites really well. Try squeezing some on a stain for a short while and then rinse out. You can use a slightly abrasive cloth or a gritty powder like sand to gently work with the lemon for faster action cleaning.
Some of the hardest stains to remove are red wine, tomato and orange stains. This is because their particles bond to the fibres of fabric and fuse. Luckily, there are lots of ways to remove them. It’s always best to work on stains (or at least soak them) because it reduces and slows the ‘fusion action’. Dissolving am active ingredient like bicarbonate of Soda is not only stain removing, but it acts as an odour neutralizer. You can even lightly scrub it on a spot stain depending on the fabric.
