Why You Should Remove Your Stains With SurfaceScience®'s Stain Eliminator
Stain removal is the process of removing a mark or spot left by one substance on a specific surface like a fabric. A solvent or detergent is generally used for stain removal and many of these are available over the counter. If a stain has "set", it has become chemically bonded to the material and cannot be removed without damaging the material itself. It is therefore important to avoid letting the stain set that one wants to remove. This can be done by avoiding heat (by not pressing or ironing the stain), sponging stained materials as quickly as possible, using the correct solvent (some solvents will act as catalysts on certain substances and cause the stain to set more quickly), and avoiding rubbing the stain.
Most stains are removed by dissolving them with a solvent. The solvent to use is dependent on two factors: the agent that is causing the stain and the material that has been stained. Different solvents will dissolve different stains, and the application of some solvents is limited by the fact that they not only dissolve the stain, but also dissolve the material that is stained as well. Another factor in stain removal is that some stains can comprise two separate staining agents, which require separate forms of removal. A machine oil stain could also contain traces of metal, for example. Also of concern is the colour of the material that is stained. Some stain removal agents will not only dissolve the stain, but will dissolve the dye that is used to colour the material.
