We all know the anecdote: a stain on our favorite garment, hours trying to get it out... without success. 
That's why we've commissioned our experts to create a real anti-stain guide, to help you make your clothes last longer. 

At the top of the anti-stain guide list are :
- Washing-up liquid, which can be used to remove difficult stains, greasy spots, etc.
- rubbing alcohol is an excellent grease-removing agent, use it to remove stubborn grease stains that resist soap.

These two secrets will help you get most of your tasks out of the way. 

But there are times when accidents can be a little trickier.
So for these tasks, we reveal our best tips. 

Red berries
Soak fabric in whey or lemon juice, then rinse with cold water and again with hot water.
Machine wash as usual.

Blood
Rinse as quickly as possible in cold water, then soak your garment in a basin of salt water.
If the stain is already dry, we recommend soaking the product in water with a little ammonia.
Don't use hot water, as the heat fixes the stain forever.


Grease, butter or motor oil
Clean with a good washing-up liquid, then machine-wash as usual. You can also make a paste with water and detergent, rub in and leave for 30 minutes.


Chocolate
First, scrape the stain to remove as much material as possible.
Then soak the stained part of the garment for 10 minutes in milk or a mixture of egg yolk and denatured alcohol to remove the stain.
Finally, wash the garment in soapy water.

Café
Rinse the area immediately with cold water, then repeat until the stain disappears.
For stubborn stains, treat with liquid detergent or a paste of washing powder and water.
Leave for about 20 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
Do not allow to dry until the stain is visible.


Sap
To remove pine resin, use an ice cube to cool the area until it is completely frozen. Scrape off any remaining residue before using a cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol to remove the stain, then rinse with cold water.
If the stain persists, try removing it with liquid detergent. Soak for 5 minutes, then follow the washing instructions. Do not dry your item until the resin has been removed.

Ink
To start with, try gently dabbing the stain with a cotton ball or a clean cotton cloth and a few drops of rubbing alcohol; several attempts may be necessary. 
We recommend that you first test the alcohol on an invisible part of the garment and allow the fabric to dry.
If you don't see any discoloration, then you can repeat the operation on the stain and let it dry again. 
Finally, clean the stain with an old toothbrush and washing-up liquid and rub until it's completely gone.

Now you'll know all about stains, and the result is clothes that last longer.
