Tips for how to clean and remove unknown stains from almost everything

It is very common to find unknown stains on our clothes all the time. It can be due to the kind of work you are doing or due to the reason that you or someone else was eating something it got spilled onto you. There can be multiple reasons for this. But now to worry we have got you covered.

As House Cleaning Queen Anne has some tips that will help you in getting rid of those stains. 

1. Soaking and rinsing with cold water 

If you don't know what the stain is, rinse it or immerse it in cold water before applying a stain removal treatment.Get used to checking all wet clothes for stains before throwing them in the dryer, as this can cause permanent staining.Unfortunately, you are not always near a washing machine or a stain remover, when a clothing disaster occurs. Some remedies will also work on insertion points and some on later points. So treat the stain as soon as possible. When house cleaning, pretreatment works best on small spots and fresh spots.But for old spots and protein spots, pre-soaking is the key.

2. Household ammonia mix 

When house cleaning, mix a part of ammonia with eight servings of water. Apply directly on the stain and leave to rest for 8 hours. Then wash the treated garment separately from the rest of the clothes.

3. Dishwashing liquid 

When house cleaning, mix a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid and a cup of water. Apply on the unknown stain. Leave to rest for 30 minutes. After that during house cleaning, give the garment a machine wash.

4. Hydrogen peroxide 

During house cleaning,mixing is not required. Use undiluted hydrogen peroxide. Pour it directly over the unknown stain. Use a toothbrush to gently apply it to the fabric. Leave the peroxide to rest on the head for 5-10 minutes. Then wash as usual in the washing machine. 

5. Soap bar 

During house cleaning, shave the soap slices of the laundry bar. Add one part of soap shavings to 10 parts of water.Work the mixture into a paste. Apply it on the stained area, wait 10 minutes, then wash as usual. This will remove the unknown stain with ease. 

6.  Enzyme laundry detergent mixture

The laundry detergent enzymes help remove protein-based stains, such as blood and chocolate, and are often quite effective in unknown stains. During house cleaning, add a teaspoon of laundry detergent containing enzymes to a cup of water. Place the solution in the stained area until it is completely saturated and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.Wash as usual at the warmest and safest washing water temperature. Check the label on the care label to get this information.
