Hints & Tips

How to remove tomato ketchup stains

From carpets: Scrape off what you can with a blunt knife, then blot stain with half-and-half glycerine and water.  Dab clean with soda water or a baking-soda solution.  Shampoo carpet.

From fabric: Pre-soak then wash as usual using biological laundry detergent.

From upholstery: Dab lightly with cold water but do not allow the fabric to get too wet.  Rinse and dab with a clean cloth to remove excess water.  If stain persists, use a proprietary stain remover.

Always check manufacturer’s instructions first.  Always try a test patch first.
