Just 3 Easy Steps to Stain Removal: 1. Before treating, remove as much of the cause of the stain as possible. 2. Place stained area in a glass (no plastic!) dish and immerse with Stain Devils solution, allowing to soak for a few minutes (10-15 min. for larger stains). Gently scrape away residue with blunt utensil. 3. Using a clean cloth moistened with solution, dab off any remaining stain. Then rinse with warm water or wash fabric as normal (washable fabrics). Repeat steps with fresh solution and longer soaking time, if necessary.
