  • When applying water / solution. use clean spray bottle
  • Test color fastness of fabric
  • Always use a clean white cloth to blot
  • Always rinse residue from fabric
  • Vacuum thoroughly after dried
  • All spotting techniques are performed at customers risk
  • Work from outside the center to prevent spread of the stain or formation of a ring
