If you’ve read the back of most of the Stain Devils (1-3, 5-7, 9 on fabrics), you’ll notice it says to “place an absorbent white cloth” underneath the stained garment. After that, it says to “tap stain” and “push it onto the cloth beneath it”. (You have to give the stain a place to go.)
Yes, those directions really do work. But it seems almost too good to be true: just tap and the stain goes away? How hard do you tap? Do you really have to put your fingers in the solution?
Here at StainTalk, we experiment regularly with the best way to get the best out of these magic yellow bottles. Below is the tried-and-true process we recommend for stains to disappear quickly and easily.
- Grab a plate. Yes, a plate. Think saucer-sized, rounded on the edges.
- Stick a clean, dry white towel (a folded paper towel is just fine) on top.
- Put the stained garment over the towel and the plate.
- Pour Stain Devil solution over the stain. The plate helps keep the stained surface wet.
- Grab another towel (or a paper towel). Tap repeatedly, directly on the stain with the towel.
- Watch the stain disappear!
