Hi, I'm Sue in West Jordan, and I'm going to talk to you a little bit about how to spot clean a garment. If you happen to get a fresh stain on an article of clothing, you can take a paper towel, and you can try to blot at the stain. Gently dab it, don't rub it into the stain, and then you can take whatever pre-treatment you have, and spray it on very generously, and then you kind of let it sit, and then go ahead, and if it's of course washable, you'd put it into the washer, and let it run through the cycle. If the stain on the clothing is gone, you can lay it out flat to dry, somewhere. Some people have tried other types of things to remove it. There's like stain sticks that you can try to gently spot, or those little pens that they have, that help you to remove the stains. Just be sure it's gone completely, before you dry it. One last method that you can use to try to get spot stain, is to sprinkle some baking soda over the spot, and then also too, pour a little bit of vinegar on it too, and that chemical reaction, will kind of help get to the stain, and then just let it sit, and put it into the washer, and launder as usual.
