Dampen a sponge with water and wipe stains from the outside to the center of the stain. If the stain remains, dampen a sponge with alcohol and use a blotting motion to absorb the stain, changing the sponge as often as needed. Apply upholstery/rug shampoo according to the directions on the container. If stain remains, use Capture spot and soil remover according to the directions on the container.
Wipe all stains with a damp sponge. If any stain remains, apply Soft Scrub with a damp sponge, work in a circular motion and rinse. If stain persists saturate a cotton ball with alcohol and blot the stain and rinse.
If stain is noticed before laundering, rinse with hot water. Wash in hot water with laundry detergent for about 12 minutes (heavy soil cycle). Soak in a solution of Oxi Clean or Clorox 2 according to the instruction on the container for one hour. Repeat laundry cycle. Repeat laundering should remove any residual stains.
Add liquid dish soap to water. Wash the stain in a circular motion using a soft cloth or sponge and rinse. If stain remains, repeat the procedure. Fresh marks are most easily removed. Residual stains on white walls and more durable surfaces may be removed with Soft Scrub, toothpaste or a mild abrasive cleanser. Apply cleanser with a soft cloth or sponge. Work the stain for several minutes. Rinse with water. Repeat if necessary.Special Precautions:Only use non-abrasive cleaners such as liquid laundry detergent, Scratch Guard or Parsons Pine Scent Ammonia on colored painted walls and surfaces to remove stains. Do not leave cleaner on surfaces for an extended period of time.Special Note:Due to differences in formulation among various paint and soap manufacturers, a cleanser may work differently on one paint than another. Colored flat paints are more sensitive. Very slight residual stains may fade with time.
