How to remove an oil paint stain?
Oil paint has a base of linseed oil which is used to mix pigments. Because of this oil base, it can be quite a difficult task to get rid of an oil paint stain.
Thus, simply washing it with detergent and water won’t serve the purpose. Follow these simple tips and you will not have to worry about removing oil paint stains ever again:
Use a spoon or a butter knife to scrape off as much paint as you can
Pad paper towels under the garment. Use as many as you need depending on the size of the stain
Dip a paper towel in a bowl of turpentine
Gently dab the stain with it
When the paper towel gets dirty, replace it with a fresh one
Continue to dab the stain and watch it fade slowly
Fill a cap with Surf Excel Matic Liquid and pour half of it on the residual stain. Rub the area with the cap
Pour the other half into your washing machine. Make sure you always choose the right type of detergent according to your machine
Run a normal wash cycle. Don’t forget to follow the wash and care guidelines.
Your clothes will be as good as new!
How to remove a fountain pen stain?
Who doesn’t like a throwback to the yesteryear? Fountain pens are very pleasant to write with. However, there is a flipside. A little flick and the ink flies right out, covering your white shirt with a not-so-nice stain. Unlike modern ball pens, fountain pens can easily leak if there is a change in air pressure, and sometimes even a little extra ink in the cartridge, can result in an overflow. But with the right products, cleaning ink stains is not that hard.
Follow these steps to learn how to remove ink stains easily:
Pour chilled milk in a bowl
Soak the stained garment in it. Make sure the ink stain is completely submerged
Leave it to rest for one hour to let the milk fade the stain
After one hour, pour Surf Excel Liquid Detergent in a bowl and wash the garment. Make sure you always follow wash and care instructions
Rinse well and let it air dry.
Now you know how to clean ink and oil paint stains like a laundry expert! It’s time you and your family dabble in oil paint and ink without worrying about stains.
