Accidents can happen to anyone at any time.
5àsec provide you with valuable advice to minimize spreading and prevent further damage to your clothing before entrusting them to us.
Life-saving techniques: do not wait too long to bring your item of clothing to the dry cleaner as the longer you wait, the harder it will be to remove the stain...
Do not wash the item without knowing the appropriate treatment. If the stain remains after the washing it will be harder to remove it.
If the stain is fresh, remove any excess with an absorbent paper and pat the stained area with a water-soaked towel.
Never use warm or hot water as it will cook the blood and set the stain. The best thing to do is to soak the bloodstained item of clothing in cold water.
Remove any excess with absorbent paper. Dab the stain with a cloth soaked in water and rubbing alcohol.
Absorb any excess with absorbent paper.
Remove any excess with absorbent paper and dab the stain carefully without spreading it. India ink stains are unfortunately unremovable.
