With the summer holidays upon us we have an increase in stains and dirt especially with young kids around, or in the absence of young kids there is always alcohol to add to the extra work in the cleaning department.
Mustard is a very tough stain and requires specific and immediate action for best results. The quick tip is to rinse or blot with cold water as soon as possible.
For washable fabric pre-soak in cold water after removing as much the mustard before soaking. Then you can pre-treat the stain with Â¼ teaspoon of dish soap and 1 cup of water, apply directly to fabric. Then wash in the hottest temperature safe for the fabric. If the stain doesn’t come out completely, don’t dry the item. Just pre-treat like before and re-wash. Drying will likely just set the stain, and a second try will often remove more of the stain.
