Stain Removal Supply Checklist

Roux Maison Stain Remover provides excellent results on organic stains such as blood, wine and grass, some non-organic stains such as ink, as well as greasy stains. 

  • Natural Absorbants (cornstarch, talcum powder) - To use, sprinkle over fresh grease stains. Wait 15 minutes, then use a dull-edged butter knife to gently scrape off.  Follow with Roux Maison Stain Remover.  Apply directly to stain, wait five to fifteen minutes, then flush with water and wash as directed.

  • Lemon Juice, White Vinegar, 2 to 3 Percent Hydrogen Peroxide, Ammonia - Each of these household ingredients can be used as mild natural bleaching agents.  Lemon juice, vinegar and hydrogen peroxide should be diluted with water in a 1 to 1 ratio.  Ammonia should be mixed in a ratio of 2 parts ammonia to 1 part water; do not use on wool or silk. Chlorine bleach should never be used, as it is bad for fabrics and toxic for the environment.

  • Denatured Alcohol - Effective for removing permanent marker stains.  Can be found at paint/hardware stores.  Be sure to check for fabric color-fastness before using.
