Stain Removal Instructions
It’s important to ALWAYS read and follow the fabric care instructions for your missionary outfits. Otherwise, you may be stuck with damaged, unsightly clothing! Another important tip to remember is to always test stain removal methods on a hidden area of your clothing before taking action to protect against any damages, fading, or additional staining.
Sooner Equals Better
The quicker you treat a stain, the better your results will be. Allowing a stain to set in and dry will allow the stain to bond with the fabric, creating more work for you to ensure a clean outcome. If you sustain or find a stain in your daily travels, be sure to treat it in the meantime until you are able to return home for proper care. Using products such as Tide To Go® can prove very helpful in mitigating the damages. Detergent sticks or fabric wipes are helpful, but if nothing is available, water is helpful for preventing the stain from fully setting. Use caution in doing this! It’s important to carefully dab moisture onto the stain, as pushing too much can rub the stain deeper into the fabrics of your missionary clothing, creating additional headaches.
Look Before You Dry
One action that numerous elders are secretly guilty of is throwing their Mormon attire into the dryer before inspecting the stained area to ensure that the problem has been lifted. If you find that the stain is still present, pretreat the fabric in the same manner as you did before, but allow the article more time to soak before washing. Failing to spot-check the stain before drying it can result in serious issues. The drying process is often at fault for making the stains on clothing permanent! Removing moisture and introducing high temperatures
Taking proper care of your missionary outfits is essential for keeping your wardrobe looking professional and clean at all times. Life happens, and oftentimes fabric stains are a result. Next time, we’ll continue to look at stain treatment tips and will be looking closer into directions that help with several different types of stains.
