The more you wait, the harder it will be. During the cleaning operation, be careful not to spread the spot. Before you start, look at the label of the garment – it will provide important information that you can later use for “treatment.”

Among the most faithful helpers in cleaning stubborn stains are lemon juice, salt, water (in any shape and degrees). The salt absorbs and takes away the color of the stain. Talc has a similar effect. Lemon juice is recommended because of the citric acid content that dissolves the fat and removes the bad scent from the fabric. Cosmetics such as hairspray or glycerin soaps can also help you. The hairspray prevents the stain from penetrating the tissue, and glycerin is an enemy of the spots of coffee, ketchup and makeup.
