this happens no less than once a day at method HQ
the pump atop your beloved bottle of method laundry detergent is good for more than just targeting dispenser drawers and laundry baskets. in fact, it’s also excellent for spot-treating. with a little practice, you’ll find that it can bestow the perfect well-targeted dollop of cleaning power onto a pesky stain.
so here’s a handy guide to tackle ink, grass, blood and a number of food stains:
1) lightly wet the problem area with warm water using a rag.
2) gently squeeze a small amount of method laundry detergent directly onto the spot and rub, using a cloth or soft toothbrush. if you have a larger stain on your hands, it might require a little extra oomph. dispense a blob of detergent, rub in, blot up what you can and then reapply detergent. proceed to next step.
3) let garment stand for 15 minutes.
4) launder in warm water. (a warm rinse is helpful, too!)
check that your stain has lifted before drying (you don’t want it to set). you can always give it another go, if necessary.
