  1. Set up protection against chemicals

    Don the rubber gloves to protect your hands from the stain removers. Make sure that the area in which you are working is well-ventilated. Open a window or turn on a fan.

  2. Apply the stain remover

    Purchase a stain remover that has a citrus-base. Read the label, and apply as instructed. After applying, rinse the area with clean water and a sponge.

  3. Mix the trisodium phosphate solution

    Fill a container with 1 gallon of water. Measure out 5 tablespoons of trisodium phosphate. Dissolve the phosphate into the water.

  4. Apply the trisodium phosphate solution

    Dip a fresh sponge into the trisodium phophate solution and apply directly to the Blu-tack mark. Allow the solution to soak into the stain for several minutes. Follow the instructions on the label of the trisodium phosphate container for recommendations.

  5. Rinse the area

    After the stain fades, rinse the area with clean water. Dry the spot with a towel or rag.
