Spilling the tea on your clothes is a common accident, and the stain can be a pesky task to remove.

We give you a few cleaning tips to make sure your clothes are stain-free.
Why Is It Important to Clean Tea Stains Sooner?
As soon as you spot tea stains on your clothes, you must blot the excess liquid using some paper towels so the stain doesn’t get deposited on the fabric. Please note that you should not rub the stain as it will only spread it further. Employ one of the cleaning methods given here based on the material of your clothing item. Read the washing instructions on the wash care label of your garment before you start treating the stain. If the label says, dry clean only, it is best to drop off your stained garment at the dry cleaner’s. Inform the dry cleaner about the stain and confirm if the stain can be treated.
