We hope you all had a fun and festive Thanksgiving weekend! While we’re sure you couldn’t get enough of the sweet potatoes and turkey, chances are you had an accidental spill of some sort. Here are a few expert tips to spot removal steps  you eliminate the mess:

Step 1: Apply a small amount of dry cleaning solvent or alcohol. You can find these items your local grocery store. Use a small amount to prevent damage to sizing or stuffing materials. Be wary of flammables.

Step 2:
Mix one teaspoon white neutral detergent with one cup water. This is a mild liquid dishwashing detergent without the strong alkalies or bleaches. 

Step 3: Mix one tablespoon household ammonia with a half cup water.

Step 4: Mix one-third cup white household vinegar with two-thirds cup water.

Step 5: Mix a solution of powdered enzyme laundry detergent following label or box instructions. Let the solution remain on the stain as recommended by the manufacturer.

For fruit and juices, follow steps 2, 3, 4, 5
For oils, follow steps 1, 2, 3, 4
For wine follow steps 2, 4 , 3
