General tips for removing all types of clothing stains are pre-treating and soaking stained garments and using the hot water setting when laundering clothes. Carrying a stain remover pen in your bag is a good tip to help remove stains before they set and become harder to remove.
Washing clothes in hot water helps remove most stains, but some stains are more effectively removed in cold water washes. Clothing with stains containing proteins such as blood, dairy, and glue stains should be washed in cold water. Delicate items such as silk lingerie, tie-dyed clothing, and satin skirts should be washed in cold water no matter how badly soiled they are.
