Stain removal rescue

Beware of D.I.Y stain remover tips – they often do more harm than good.  Remember three basics – 1. Never pick or scratch at the stain, it breaks the fabric and causes permanent damage. 2. Don’t rub anything into the stain – you are pushing the stain into the fabric, not taking it out. 3.

We’re trained to get stains out, professionally.
