How can I remove a stain that is resistant to the typical method of removal?
If the standard method for stain removal does not remove the stain entirely you can use a stain-removing poultice for the deep, stubborn stains.
A poultice is a cleaner or chemical mixed with an absorbent powder to form a paste-like material (similar to the consistency of peanut butter.)
- Spread the poultice over the stained area with a wooden or plastic spatula to a thickness of ¼” to ½”.
- Cover the area with plastic and taped around the edges to hold it in place for about 24 hours.
- Remove the plastic and allow the poultice to dry thoroughly for another 24 hours.
- To remove the poultice, rinse with distilled water and buff dry with a clean, soft cloth. A wooden or plastic scraper may be used if necessary.
Repeat the process if the stain is not removed. Difficult stains may take up to five or more applications.
