Spot Removal Guide 2017-01-27T04:16:53+00:00

This is intended as a guide based on our experience with readily available household products. Spot removal is not guaranteed.


  1. Detergent: Mix 1/4tsp colorless mild detergent in 1 cup water
  2. Amonia: mix tblsp clear amonia in ½ cup water
  3. Vinegar: mix 1/3 cup water vinegar in 2/3 cup water
  4. Dry cleaning solvent: apply standard rubbing alcohol to clean cloth and blot.

Follow each step in order, only going to the next one if the stain doesn’t remove. We suggest a portable extractor with water only as first attempt and to flush in between steps
