Insect stains on your clothes is not something out of the ordinary. Especially if you like going on picnic in the forest or you live in an area where there are a lot of trees and bushes nearby. When you’re washing washable fabrics it’s not that big of a deal but what can you do if the fabric is not suited for the washing machine. In this article we’ll explain some easy cleaning recipes for old and fresh insect stains on non-washable fabrics.
Many expert cleaners at a cleaning agency in London advise that you treat all stains as soon as possible.
So, if you catch the stain in time before it sets in your clothes and turns into a crusty mess here is what you have to do.
Take a spray bottle and fill it with cold water. Spray the stain generously to loosen it from the fabric. Blot the stained area with a cloth. This should be done several times to get rid of the stain. Dry it off with a clean cloth.
If it isn’t coming off, then you are probably too late and the stain has gone deeper into the fabric. With the next recipe we’ll try to remove an old insect stain from the non-washable fabric.
First take a soft bristle bush and scrape of the crusty matter. Take a bowl and mix in it two cups of cold water with a tablespoon of liquid dish washing detergent. Find an old toothbrush and dip it in the cleaning solution. Very gently brush the stained surface and try to get the stain out. Blot the area with a clean wet cloth to rinse off the solution. This also should be repeated several times to achieve the best result. If the stain still remains after this treatment you’ll have to resort to more extreme measures.
Take a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide. First test it on unseen part of the clothing to see if there is any discolouration happening. Moisten the stain with the hydrogen peroxide and wait for 5 minutes. Blot the stain with a clean cloth and repeat the process until you get the stain out. When you’re done with the cleaning rinse the peroxide with a cloth soaked with plain water. Dry the fabric with a clean towel.
