As parents, we feel so proud of our sons and daughters by the time they started attending school. We get so excited hearing their stories about what they learned that they and how much fun they’ve had with their classmates. While we feel so fulfilled with our child’s every achievement, this new activity can cause serious stains on your child’s clothes such as pencil, paint, and crayons.
Many of us think that pencil stains are impossible to remove. Actually, there are ways on how you can remove such stain easily off your child’s clothing. Here are the steps on how to remove pencil stains on clothes.
Erase pencil stains. Like pencil marks on paper, you can erase the pencil stains literally off the laundry. You can use the pencil eraser at the tip or a separate pencil eraser. A few gentle passes with an eraser is enough to remove the marks from the clothes.
Apply stain remover formula. Apply a stain remover formula on the stained area. Make sure you follow the correct instructions whenever applying their stain remover formula.
Wash normally. Wash the garment as you normally do using the correct temperature setting for your fabric. Be sure to repeat the above steps if the stain remains before finally drying the stain free clothing.
Hang the clothing to dry. It is better to dry the stained clothing under the heat of the sun instead of your dryer. Drying stained clothes in the dryer may make the stain permanent. Also the sun is a wonderful stain remover.
If the stain persists, you can repeat the following steps until the stain is completely gone. But for special fabrics, read the tag for washing instructions. If the tag says the garment needs professional cleaning, then you must bring the clothing to the local cleaner.
