How concerning it is to see spots in freshly washed clothes? The entire effort of doing the laundry goes for a toss, when we see such undesired spots. To help you treat those spots and stains, we have listed below a few causes and ways to have your clothes clean and spotless. Foremost and a simple way to avoid and easily treat such stains is to notice, whether the clothes have such stains before washing or is it an after-wash result. Noticing this at a pre-wash stage will help you treat the stains better and with lesser effort.

Causes of stains:

  • Spots of medicines/lotions/perfumes: Chemicals used in ointments, lotions and perfumes leaves stain on clothes, towels and bed sheets. On washing clothes with such stains without specifically treating the stains might let the colour sit further on the fabric.
  • Bleach and washing powder: Clothes soaked in bleach-water, where the bleach doesn’t get dissolved properly can leave spots and patches on clothes. Same applies to undissolved washing powder. Always make sure that the washing powder is thoroughly dissolved to avoid such unpleasant stains on washed clothes.
  • Stains from oil/grease: Be it an oil splash from the kitchen counter or from a mechanic’s store. Oil stains are often stubborn if not treated immediately.

How to treat stains:

  • Power of bio-enzymes: Enzyme-based stain remover can work effectively in removing plant-based stains. PUER liquid detergent has bio-enzymes, which works effectively on stains without harming the texture of the fabric. It is completely powered by natural ingredients, which makes it equally efficacious in comparison to the chemical-heavy counterparts. Also, remember to air-dry the clothes that has been specially washed for stain-removal.

Your washing machine can also be a culprit in staining your clothes. To be able to avoid this, always keep your washing machine clean. Once in month or depending on how often you use the washing machine, run a hot water cycle with a little bit of vinegar to clean your washing machine. Do not keep the washed clothes inside the machine for too long and after every wash, keep the front dooe or the top lid of your washing machine open to let it completely dry and minimise any chances of moisture deposit, which in the long run might lead to rust and degeneration of the washing machine.

Hope this article will help identify and solve the problems of unwanted stains and patches on your clothes.
