In this post we’re going to show you how to remove a stain from french terry products. Whether you need to remove something from your french terry hoodies, or your french terry sweatpants, we’ve got you covered.
Your best bet in removing stains is to get to them as quickly as possible. Letting the stain sit will only make removal more difficult. We’ve also made a short video on the topic that you can watch here if you don’t want to read through this entire post.
Your first step is to pour a small amount of rubbing alcohol over the stain. Rubbing alcohol will help to break down the compounds of the stain as opposed to just using water.
You may want to gently dab the stain, but be very gentle and cautious not to rub the stain into the surrounding fabric which can make the problem worse.
Hang for about 20 minutes and let the alcohol do it’s magic.
Once you’ve allowed the rubbing alcohol to fully set in, you’re ready to move on. In this step you’re going to take a very small amount of dish soap and rub it between your fingers until you create suds.
Head over to your sink, and turn on the cold water. It’s very important you use cold water.
Gently begin to scrub the stained area with the dish soap between your fingers. Continue rubbing it in until you can clearly see that you’re creating suds within the terry.
Wash it out with cold water. At this point, the alcohol has done the job to release the stain from the threads of the fabric, and the soap has done its job to wash it away from the area.
It’s extremely important that you use cold water as this will most effectively remove the stain.
Hang to dry
Enjoy your terry again 🙂
