Iced tea: tasty, but potentially dangerous

On a hot summer day, nothing whets one’s whistle quite like a glass of freshly brewed tea, garnished with lemon and served over ice. But beware: enjoying a refreshing glass of iced tea outside on a hot summer’s day can be dangerous, even in the shade. One slip of your grip and the tasty beverage could be staining your clothes, not quenching your thirst.

When these summertime disasters strike, quick attention and a little home remedying are often your best defenses. When garments are labeled “dry clean only,” however, the job is best left to the pros at Classic Cleaners.

Here’s how to remove iced tea stains at home in just three easy steps:

Step 1: Saturate the area with pretreatment stain remover.

Step 2: Lay the stained area down on a couple paper towels and blot the backside of the stain with heavy-duty liquid detergent. The paper towels will attract the stain.

Step 3: In the hottest water safe for the fabric, launder the stained garment with detergent – not soap. Soap can make the stain nearly impossible to remove.

If the stains are particularly pesky, visit Classic Cleaners and trust the trained stain removal specialists with the task of making your clothes look as good as new!
