Ketchup Stain Removal in Peoria, AZ 85383
Do It Yourself Staff
Condiment stains, such as ketchup and mustard, can be removed by first blotting up the stain as quickly as possible. Then, sponge the stain with cool water, work a little liquid detergent into the stain gently with your fingers, and rinse in cool water. Apply a good stain remover, such as Shout, to the stained area, and launder per care label instructions. Never dry a garment in the dryer until you are sure the stain is fully removed. This will set the stain permanently, and it will never be completely removed. In carpeting, if the stain is fresh, using club soda very often removes the stain. Blot up the excess, being careful not to rub into the carpeting. Soak with club soda, and blot up excess, using a clean white cloth. Keep after it until the stain is gone. Windex is also reported to remove many carpet stains from condiments, but be advised that Windex contains ammonia, and it may bleach out carpeting, leaving a spot more noticeable than the stain. Test on an area of carpeting where it will not be noticed.
Note: Always test an inconspicuous area for colorfastness, etc. before treating the exposed area. Also note that certain stains are permanent
