Cleaning your House: the Dining Room

Keeping table cloths and cloth napkins in good shape can sometimes seem daunting, especially when it comes to stain removal. Luckily, we have the tips to cleaning them and removing even the toughest of stains so you can relax.

Drink Stains

Tea and coffee stains can be tricky, but we have the solution to remove them. It is important to take action before the hot drink has dried because it will be much easier to get rid of. While the stain is still fresh, simply dab a wet paper towel or cloth onto the stain until it is barely noticeable. To remove it completely, rub in a stain removal product such as Resolve® Oxi-Action Spray N Wash and put it in the wash with an additional scoop of Resolve® In Wash Powders.
Fruit juice can stain your fabrics, blueberry, cranberry and red grape in particular, as these and other fruits contain tannins. These stains can be easily removed however, and you start by first rinsing the fabric in cold water. After leaving it for 5 minutes, rinse the fabric again, but this time with boiling hot water. If a mark still remains, rub in a solution of Resolve® Oxi-Action and add a scoop in the wash to get rid of the stains for good.

Food Stains

Chocolate can be another tough stain to remove, as it can leave an oily mess due to the cocoa butter. If the stain is still fresh, start by rubbing in a liquid-based stain removal product, such as Resolve® Oxi-Action Dual Power, and dabbing it with a slightly wet paper towel or cloth. Add a scoop of Resolve® to your wash to make sure you see the optimum stain removal result.
For tough oil stains, start by rubbing in some Resolve® Oxi-Action Dual Power. Rinse the fabric and put it in the wash with one scoop of Resolve® Oxi-Action. Once the cycle is finished your fabric will be stain free again.

Hopefully cleaning your dining room will not seem such a hassle now, and you will be able to enjoy great meals without having to worry about the threat of stains!
