Bright kelly green dye. It’s not just in the beer, but on the cookie and cake icing at work and even some of the food. It’s on paper that bleeds and the ink on it too.

We can fix it!

Here’s what you need to remember. Avoid spreading the stain and limit exposure to the affected area. Try to isolate the stain as soon as you see it. Blot up any excess and don’t let it run and get any larger.

What kind of fabric do you have and what kind of stain? If you know what made the stain, look at our fantastic stain removal guide. It provides detailed instructions for so many different stains and fabrics and is an amazing resource for all of your unexpected stains. Roux Maison Stain Remover is safe for almost any kind of fabric too. If you aren’t sure about your fabric, just test an inside seam. Keeping some of this ready for an emergency is always an excellent plan.

Now you’ve blotted away all of the reside that you can and you’ve checked our stain removal guide for the best plan of attack for damage control, you can proceed with laundering your stained clothes. Depending on the fabric and the stain, a good pre-soak can be really beneficial too. Then, launder the item as you normally would, using the appropriate Roux Maison laundry detergent for the fabric composition of your clothing.

A great rule of thumb is to avoid the dryer. We are huge proponents of air drying whenever possible anyway. Save your garments the wear and tear of heat drying. They will last longer and wear better and you’ll be conserving energy too. A win-win scenario all around. Also, always remember that heat will set in any residual stains that did not completely come out. If you air dry, you can always try to re-treat any remaining stain and launder again, usually with better luck.

We hope luck will be on your side today and save you from any green mystery stains. At least now you’ll know how to help your friends who aren’t so lucky. Make sure you have a lucky travel sized bottle of Roux Maison Stain Remover with you all day. It will be ready for all of your stain emergencies and also be your “something green” just in case you forgot some today!
