It is common to spill oily sauces onto your clothes during the Holiday Season. It can be very difficult to get rid of these sauces, particularly the Barbecue sauce. These sauces can penetrate the fabric of your clothes, making it very difficult to remove. If you follow the correct processes, however, you might be able to remove most, if not all, of the stain.
Here’s how to remove oily sauces and stains from your clothes with ease!
- GET RID OF ANY EXCESS: You should immediately wipe up any sauce left over after a spillage. It is important not to spread it. The stain should be kept as small as possible. The sauce will remain in the cloth if it is not removed. Do not scrub the stain if you want to remove it. This will only make the stain more visible in the fibers.
- RINSE THE AREA IN COLD WATER: Once you have removed the sauce, run cold water over the stain’s backside. After the stain has dried, you should apply cold water to the backside of it. Hot water will cause the stain to stick to the fibers. Apply a small amount of laundry soap to the stained fabric while running cold water. Apply the soap to both sides of stain. This will prevent the stain from forming in the fibers and make it easy to remove.
- APPLY A STAIN REMOVAL TO THE AREA: After washing the stain with cold water, laundry soap and detergent, you can apply a liquid stain remover or spray-type stain eliminator. You should apply it to both sides of stained fabric. Make sure that you cover the entire area. Let the stain remover sit for at most ten to fifteen mins before you wash it off. You can bleach white fabric with a bleaching agent. If you are unsure about the use of bleaching agents, you can skip it.
- WARM SOAPY WATER IS SUGGED TO SOAK THE STAIN: Once you have applied a strong stain removal product to the fabric, let it soak in warm soapy waters. After washing the fabric with soap, you can apply stain remover once more and allow it to soak for a few more minutes. Rinse it again and wash as usual.
