Clothes suitable for hot wash

Oil colours should be dabbed with turpentine oil. Use blotting paper to absorb excess liquid. Acrylic colours should be dabbed with a mixture of spirit and a small amount of household ammonia (8%). Use blotting paper to absorb excess liquid. The treatment must be repeated several times. Afterwards, wash the clothes using an enzyme-containing detergent. White clothes should be washed with an enzyme-containing detergent with bleach.

Coloured clothes

Rub the stain with a mixture of four parts of spirit, three parts of brown soap and one part of household ammonia (8%). Use blotting paper to absorb excess liquid and wash the clothes using an enzyme-containing detergent.

Wool clothes

Dab the stain with turpentine oil and use blotting paper to absorb excess liquid. Old stains should be rubbed with a mixture of one part turpentine oil, one part brown soap and one part of household ammonia (8%). Use blotting paper to absorb excess liquid. Immediately, rinse the clothes in cold water and wash the clothes afterwards.

Silk clothes

Conduct a test to ensure that the clothes will not get damaged. Perform the test on a spot, where potential damage will be less visible. Rub the stain with a mixture of turpentine, brown soap and household ammonia (8%). Use blotting paper to absorb excess liquid and wash the clothes afterwards.
