Tips and Tricks for Common Clothing Stains 

Stained clothing is inevitable and even the most careful of people 'oopsie' moments resulting in a blatant stain. Check out these tips and tricks for different types of clothing stains. 

Removing Chocolate Stains

We've all experienced it, getting up from the couch after munching a bar of chocolate to find semi-melted chocolate debris squished onto our clothing. Avoid using hot water or scraping it off as this will make the stain worse.

Simply pop the item of clothing into the fridge or freezer and then scrape it off with a knife or spoon when it has hardened. If it's not completely gone, run hot water on the back of the stain to push the melted chocolate through. Then simply spray on The Lab Co spot stain remover and throw it in the wash.

Removing Grease Stains

Grease stains are a real headache and the ruiner of many much-loved clothing items. The most important thing is to react quickly to a grease stain. Throw some salt or baking soda on the affected spot to help draw out the stain. Then, treat with The Lab Co spot stain remover as usual.

Removing Mud and Grass Stains

Do your kids love to muck about in the great outdoors? No problem! The Lab Co spot stain remover effectively removes tough stains and the best way to get rid of mud and grass stains is by working in the stain remover with a clothing brush. This will loosen the dry mud.

Removing Blood Stains

Little nicks and cuts are not only painful but also leave tough stains on clothing. First, rinse the stain in cold water. Avoid hot water as it will entrench the blood deeper into the fabric. Use a bit of our stain remover and voila!

Removing Red Wine Stains

A knocked over wine glass is an inevitability at almost every dinner party. Interestingly, the best way to remove a red wine stain is by blotting it with white wine immediately. Then you can throw on some salt to soak up all the wine moisture and treat it with The Lab Co spot stain remover.
