How To Remove Stains From Tissues

Sometimes you have to fix a problem that isn’t actually a problem and you’ll avoid the headache and aggravation of the situation.

Also … if you follow this tutorial a lot, you’ll probably be able to spot the problem faster. ┬áThis is one of those times in life when it pays to go with your gut. What you should know is that there are many stains on a tissue that you can use instead of trying to get them off.

Let’s see how to remove the two worst stains from your t-shirt.

1. Filling The Stains Using Bleach A. If the stain is an “overkill” stain, you may have to use bleach. In short, a bleach solution will remove a stain that doesn’t need to be removed. Bleach will cause the fibers in most clothing to become brittle and more susceptible to tearing, making it much harder to remove the stain. So a bleach-based stain remover might not work on “overkill” stains. But this is not always the case.

B. If the stain is a “weak” stain, you will want to let it set, then either wash or hand-wash it using the steps below. A bleach-based solution will remove the stain if you just let it sit, which will allow it to dry and be less likely to become a problem. If the stain is in one place, like behind a door, you may be able to remove it by wiping to the fabric from behind. If the stain is in many places, you may want to let it sit before using a bleach-based stain remover. Then you have to determine how much bleach or other solution to use to kill the stain. For example, in the photo above, the stain is in the shirt and not on the fabric. You may want to use 30% bleach, so that you can be sure you’ve fully covered the stain. If you can’t be certain, then 30% bleach will do a good job. It’s also possible that the shirt contains a lot of soft cotton that will resist the bleach a little bit longer. However, as long as you’re diligent on wiping with a dry cloth, the stain should come right off.

C. If the stain is a “weak” stain … or a “slow-developing” stain, it can cause long-term wear or tear to your clothing. So even though it’s not a very visible stain, it’s important to follow these steps and let it set before using a bleach-based stain remover. D. If the stain is an “overkill” stain, you can leave it alone without worry. It may never actually form a permanent spot on your clothes, and any color dye may never run down on to your skin. Or your stain may not bother you all that much unless you’re wearing it for some time to come.

2. Hand-Washing With Bleach If you’re in a rush, or you want to see your shirt or sweater after washing it, there’s nothing wrong with washing it with bleach. If it needs to be washed quickly, so be it. But if you want that item to be as clean as possible, it’s a better idea to wash it using laundry detergent. Why? Because bleach will cause you to create a water-soluble product that will not make it through your washing machine. So wash it with laundry detergent. After washing it, then add a little bit of bleach to the final wash or dry it off, to give you a more stain-resistant final outcome.
