Select a stain type below for removal tips

Oily Stains

IMMEDIATELY

Remove excess grease or oil from the soiled area.

PRETREAT

Cover stain with Sard Wonder Citrus or Sard Wonder Brush. Wait at least one minute then wash with the full dose of a good detergent. Always follow garment care instructions.

THEN WASH

Use Cold Power powder or Dynamo liquid and wash as the care label recommends. Check garment after washing. If stain is not completely removed, pre-treat and re-wash.

Wine

IMMEDIATELY

Flush with cool soda water. If red wine pour white wine directly over the stain before flushing with soda water.

PRETREAT

Cover stain with a paste of Sard Wonder Power Stain Remover Soaker and water before soaking in warm water as per instructions.

THEN WASH

Use Cold Power powder or Dynamo liquid and wash as the care label recommends.

Blood

IMMEDIATELY

For fresh stains: Hold the stained area face down under cold running water until water runs clear. For dried stains: Scrape as much of the blood off the fabric as possible.

PRETREAT

For fresh stains: Treat the stain with Sard Wonder Brush, Stick, Soap or Spray, following pack instructions, let it stand for 30 minutes, then rinse with cold water. For dried stains: Soak for 1 hour in an enzyme pre-treater or water solution made with 1 lid of Sard Wonder Power Stain Remover Soaker in 7 litres of warm water.

THEN WASH

Use Cold Power powder or Dynamo liquid and wash as the care label recommends.

Grass

PRETREAT

Soak for 1 hour or overnight for heavy stains in an enzyme pre-treater or water solution made with 1 lid of Sard Wonder Soaker in 7 litres of warm water. Or, rub with Sard Wonder Stick, Soap, or Spray, following pack instructions.

THEN WASH

Use Cold Power powder or Dynamo liquid and wash as the care label recommends.

Pen or Ink

IMMEDIATELY

Identify the type of ink (ballpoint, felt tip, or another type of ink). A permanent ink is unlikely to be removed. Refer to a dry cleaner for professional help. Even ink that can be removed is tricky. Do not dilute or sponge with water. This can cause ink to "set" permanently. Instead, proceed with caution as you pre-treat the stain.

PRETREAT

Place the stain face down on paper towels. Spray aerosol hairspray on stain or apply denatured alcohol to back of stain. Replace paper towels frequently. Rinse with cool water.

THEN WASH

Use a Dynamo liquid and the hottest water safe for the fabric. Use chlorine bleach if care label allows; otherwise, use Sard Wonder Soaker.
