Tips on Removing Tea Stains

  1. For a fresh spill dilute stain with cold water and blot dry with a colour fast towel.
  2. Repeat step 1 for as long as you are getting a positive result.
  3. If required apply a detergent/water solution (1tspn : 1 ltr of warm water) and blot dry and repeat as necessary.
  4. If a stain remains apply ammonia/water solution (1:15) and neutralise with a water vinegar solution (1:1).
  5. repeat step 4 until stain is gone or not responding. Rinse with clean water and blot dry.
  6. Any remaining stain is most likely a tannin stain and you will probably need our help to fix this especially if it hasn't responded to the ammonia/vinegar treatment.
