How to get the best results with stain removal
One of the biggest influencing factors for successful stain removal is time. Therefore, attend to spots and stains as soon as possible. When tackled correctly most spots or stains can be removed. Regardless of the cause, success rates are much higher when a spot is fresh.

Simple, safe stain removal procedures for most stains
By following a few simple procedures you should be able to safely treat most stains without causing irreversible damage.
If the spill is fresh, blot up as much as possible with a white or colourfast cotton towel, or a wad of absorbent paper towel. If spill contains solids use a spoon or dull knife to remove any solids by scraping from the outside edge towards the center and scoop it up. This avoids spreading the stain.
If dry, spray or apply with a sponge a small amount of cold water or carbonated water over the spill and work it in with the spoon to attempt to re-liquefy then start the blotting process. For dried solids use a spoon and vacuum cleaner to remove as much as possible before adding moisture.
Use a fresh part of the towel or a fresh wad of paper towel and apply pressure or stand on it to blot. Repeat this procedure until no more residue from the spill transfers to the towel.
