Removing brown marks from underwear

Shit-Stained-Underwear

When trying to clean a Poop Stain out of underwear or pants it is important to pretest the products you will be using to make sure you don’t do further damage to the underwear you are cleaning. The best way to do this is to apply a small amount of the cleaner to a white cloth and hold it to an inconspicuous area of the underwear for 30 – 60 seconds. If there is no colour transfer onto the cloth it should be safe to use on stain.

Do not saturate the poop stain with cleaning compounds because some compounds will set the stain permanently into the underwear. For the same reason don’t apply heat to the stain.

When trying to get a poop stain out you should blot with a clean white cloth or paper towels. Blot from the outside edges towards the center of the stain. Do Not scrub or rub the stain vigorously because it is possible to damage or change the texture of the fabric permanently. Also you could make the stain go deeper into the underwear and even if it appears to have been removed by this process it is possible it will reappear later. Removing a poop stain as soon as you see it is very important. The longer it is in underwear the harder it is to remove.

The longer a stain remains, the greater the odds are that it won’t come out!

As with many poop stains, removing them can be difficult. It is important not to lose patience and repeat the steps if necessary.Also before applying any liquid cleaners gently scrape away any solid or semi solid material with a blunt spatula or spoon taking care not to damage the fabric.

Follow these simple steps for removing a POOP STAIN

Immediately blot up as much of the poop stain as possible using a soft, white, absorbent material like a towel or napkin.

Mix one teaspoon of a neutral detergent (a mild detergent containing no alkalies or bleaches) with a cup of luke-warm water. Blot.

Neutralize with a household ammonia solution (Mix one tablespoon of household ammonia with a half cup of water). Apply household ammonia solution using a spray bottle and blot to remove excess moisture.

Neutralize with a white vinegar solution (Mix one-third cup of white household vinegar with two-thirds cup of water). Apply white vinegar solution using a spray bottle and blot to remove excess moisture.

Repeat step one with the neutral detergent to remove any stain that might still appear to be in the underwear.

Rinse with tap water using a spray bottle, blot to remove excess moisture. Apply pad of paper towels and brick and allow to dry.

If there is still some stain on the underwear and blotting is not removing it, then moisten the tufts in the stained area with 3% hydrogen peroxide. Let stand for on (1) hour. Blot and repeat until the underwear is stain free. Light will cause peroxide to change back to water so no rinsing is necessary.

Apply pad of paper towels and weight down with brick.
