Blot the stain
There is no need to panic after watching the stain. Don’t run towards and start rubbing it off as it will make it worse.
Run stain under running water
Next you should run the stain under running water. Remember that water should hit back of the stain so it could push it out from the passage it went in.
Rub liquid detergent
You need to rub liquid detergent on the tomato sauce stain. Remember to carefully spill the detergent on to the stain so it could be more effective.
Sponge the stain
Sponge the tomato sauce stain preferably with cool water. You need to start from the centre and move outwards after dampening the sponge and rubbing the stain.
Next you need to rub the place with a slice of lemon. You can also sponge the tomato sauce stain with a lemon juice.
Remember if your fabric is white then it is advised to use hydrogen peroxide or white vinegar. This is to avoid lemon stains which can be evident on white colour fabrics.
Wash out the stain
Add stain remover on the tomato sauce spot and then apply water. You need to blot away all of the liquid which is possible.
Leave fabric to dry
After flushing the stain, leave the fabric to air dry.
In case the stain is still there, soak your fabric into the mixture of
- 1 quart warm water
- 1/2 teaspoon dishwashing detergent
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
Leave the fabric in this solution for 15 minutes.
Rinse with water
Next you need to rinse the fabric with water.
In the end, wash the whole fabric. You will get a stain free fabric.
