How to Remove Stains from Your Missionary Clothing

Different types of stains require different treatment methods, but all stains demand attention to get them out. Even if you cannot wash the garment immediately, you can treat it to ensure more presentable clothing later.

Here are some tips and tricks for removing stains from your missionary clothing.

Pretreat ASAP

It’s not a bad idea to have a stain stick or pen handy for treating stains on the go, especially if you’re prone to them. If you don’t have one of those options, keep an enzymatic pretreatment spray. You can simply spray the stain and let it sit until you do laundry.

Know Your Stains

Simply pretreating spots work for most common stains, but it’s a good idea to have an understanding of other types of stains that require different methods. For example, some severe stains require a good soaking in water or vinegar for best results. Some stains, like mud, should be allowed to dry, then the dirt can be scraped off as much as possible before laundering.

Brighten Whites

Your white shirts will inevitably become dingy or have spots that just won’t come out. Washing them with detergent or bleach made specifically for whites is the best method to get your dress shirts pristine again. OxiClean is an excellent option for this.

Wash Correctly

In addition to treating the stain, it’s important to make sure you follow through on washing your clothing according to the tags. This means not washing items that must be dry cleaned or washing clothing on the wrong temperature. It’s also a good idea to check your clothing for stains before you wash and dry them as stains can be harder to get out once they’ve gone through a load.
