Our Best Holiday Stain Removal Tips and Techniques
On table linens: Using an enzyme detergent, like Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean, and the warmest water safe for the fabric, soak for 30 minutes. Wash in warm water, using bleach if the fabric allows.
On the rug: For wool, soak up liquids with paper towels and use a cloth to dab the spot with cold water. Then blot with WoolClean Dry Spot Remover No. 2. For a synthetic rug, apply diluted dish soap with a damp cloth; rinse with a clean section of the cloth. Dry with paper towels. If the stain remains, fill a spray bottle with ½ cup hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon ammonia. Lightly spritz the solution onto the spot—the stain should disappear in about eight hours.
