Removing stains from clothes: natural methods and useful technologies

In the summer months, we tend to go out more and partake in outdoor activities more frequently. We therefore have a tendency to dirty our clothes more often with grass, mud and food stains, in addition to simply sweating more. If it's true to say that we can’t wait to spend time doing what we enjoy the most, then it’s also true to say that we just about regret our outdoor excursion on laundry day when we're presented with an abundance of stains that we have to get out of our clothing. Luckily for you, we have tricks up our sleeves to make this task as simple as possible.

Solutions for removing the toughest of stains

Resin is one of the toughest stains to remove. If you're wondering how to get resin out of your clothes, we have the perfect solution for you: turpentine! Dilute in a 1:3 ratio of 90% alcohol and turpentine to help remove resin from coloured garments, while turpentine essence is widely recommended for delicate fabrics, such as wool. If instead you're trying to remove mud stains from clothes - maybe you got a little dirty gardening or on the rugby field - simply allow the marks to dry, brush away the dust and pre-treat the area with a good detergent. There are also a number of effective methods for removing grass stains from clothing, which are among the most common and difficult to get out (mums and dads know this only too well!) From lemon to bicarbonate of soda, Marseille soap to alcohol, there really are countless methods to remove grass stains from denim, cotton and delicate fabrics. If you’ve somehow managed to steer clear of grass, mud and resin stains, with the heat, it's almost impossible to avoid sweat marks. To remove all traces, including the unsightly yellow rings, we recommend spraying a little lemon on the affected area, or treating it with a solution of bicarbonate of soda and cold water in a 1:3 ratio: allow to act respectively for half an hour to an hour before washing in the washing machine as usual.

Technology, our biggest ally

Of course, the old ways are always effective, but why limit ourselves to these when technology can give us a hand? If you have a smart Candy household appliance and use the Candy simply-Fi app, you can receive suggestions on the most suitable washing and drying programmes for your needs based on the fabric, colour and level of dirtiness: there's no need to be well-versed in dealing with all types of stain to have immaculately clean and brightly coloured clothing. The new Candy washing machines, washer-dryers and tumble dryers make life even easier by not only washing your garments to perfection, but also by saving energy.

Thanks to the latest technologies, there's no reason not to get out and enjoy the summer with family.
