LG Laundry Care : Stain Removal

December 15th, 2012 by LG Blog UK
STAIN REMOVAL Stains happen, and let’s face it we aren’t always equipped to deal with them. The best “tool” is knowing how to treat different types of stains. Some respond better to cold water, others to hot. Always check the care label first and pretest stain removal products. If the item is dry clean only, blot the excess stain and take to the cleaners within 24-48 hours of the stain. Pretreat stains Here are some general tips for pretreating stains: Allow the pretreating liquid to sit on the stain for five minutes. That way the chemistry in the detergent will have a chance to...

When in doubt, follow the kit instructions. Here are some basic instructions for cleaning most canvas and nylon trainers: 1. Remove...

Prewashed denim, also known as preshrunk or distressed denim, is achieved through bleaching or several mechanical treatments like stonewashes, sandblasting and scraping.

And in my achingly hip Uni days, yours truly was the only kid on campus not to take their dirty smalls home at half-term for mum to wash. Puh-leeze!! But now I’m all grown up, and can hold my own – and...
