Iodine (Tincture) Stain Removal
** Important - Always read and follow the fabric care instructions as well as any warnings provided by the upholstery manufacturer. Some upholstery requires dry cleaning. Upholstery with natural fibers or certain dyes or finishes may also require special treatment. If unsure, contact the manufacturer or a upholstery cleaning professional for advice or service. Also follow the General Guidelines for Fabric and Upholstery Stain Removal.
  • Blot to remove excess liquid or stain. Wet fabric with minimum amount of water, soak 1 minute, and blot with paper towel. Repeat water/blot procedure until no stain is evident on towel, and then blot dry.
  • If fabric stain is persistent, wet stained area with water. Apply small amount of detergent/water solution, work into stained area with sponge and blot. Repeat detergent/water application until no stain is evident on towel.
  • Rinse with clear water to remove traces of detergent and blot dry. It is important to remove all traces of detergent to prevent rapid resoiling.
  • Rinse with 3% acetic acid or 50/50 vinegar/water solution. Blot dry.
