Tips

  • Using too much spotting liquids/detergent can leave behind a sticky residue.

If you need to, use large quantities, or else dirt will naturally find its way attracted back to the same spot.
  • Distribute weight evenly over entire spot cover

Warnings

  • Do not cover stained spot with colored article
  • Only blot stained spot, never rub.
