Blood
Rinse with cold water immediately. Then wash as recommended on the care label.

Ink, ballpoint pen, and colored pencil
Try using a stain/spot remover first. If that doesn’t work, try methylated spirits. Rinse away the ink/color that is dissolved. Repeat until all color/ink is gone.

Berries and other fruit
Wash at 95 °C if the fabric will stand it. If the stain is still there, on white garments you can try oxalic acid solution which might bleach out the color stain.

Chocolate
Carefully scrape off any remaining chocolate and then wash as recommended on the care label. You can also freeze the garment and then brush off the chocolate before washing.

Coffee
Rinse immediately with cold water and then wash as recommended on the care label.

Ketchup, tomato and grass
Wash as recommended on the care label. If the stain is still there, wash again immediately with a laundry detergent containing bleach. You can also pre-treat the stain with a stain-removing soap.

Resin
Dissolve the stain with a rag soaked in turpentine. Then wash as recommended on the care label.

Lipstick
Pre-treat the stain with dishwashing liquid and then wash as recommended on the care label. Rub with soap if the stain does not come out in the wash.

Oil
Dissolve the stain with a grease solvent, such as dishwashing liquid. Rub with soap and then wash as recommended on the care label.

Rust
Dissolve the stain with tartaric or citric acid. Then wash as recommended on the care label.

Red wine
Cover the stain with table salt to absorb the wine. Pre-wash by hand with dishwashing liquid, then wash in the washer as recommended on the care label, preferably with a detergent containing bleach. Or try removing red wine stains with a small amount of white wine.

Butter and margarine
Pre-treat the stain with a grease solvent like dishwashing liquid. Rinse, then wash as recommended on the care label.
