Keep the size of the stain
It seems obvious, but the first thing you do when you see a stain is to rub it. In reality, it is precisely an action to avoid, especially if the fabrics are delicate like silk and organza.
To remove dirt residues without spreading the stain, it is recommended to scrape it using a hard object, such as a spoon or a small knife.
Soak the garment
One thing is certain; there are more stubborn stains that need an extra touch before the wash cycle. So if at this moment you can't wait to find the method to remove blood stains or you are struggling because you don't know how to get the resin or glue out of your clothes, don't worry!
It is, therefore, necessary to soak the stained garment using a detergent for babies, such as Bio Presto Baby, the liquid detergent for washing machines also suitable for handwashing. It is more delicate than the usual detergents because it does not affect the skin and particularly effective against stubborn stains. In fact, to remove blood stains, you can dilute it in cold water and leave the garment to soak.
Start washing in the washing machine
You have finally reached the last step; that of putting the fateful pre-treated garment in the washing machine. To preserve the fibers of the fabrics, just wash at 30 degrees with a washing machine detergent for sensitive skin such as Bio Presto Baby, particularly delicate on children's skin and capable of removing stains, offering excellent rinsing, without leaving residues on the fabrics. In addition to the specific detergent for the baby's laundry, you can add a small dose of fabric softener to leave the garment softer and more fragrant.

Make a final check
Finally, it's time to enjoy the result and dry your clothes as you usually do while avoiding exposing them too much to the sun so as not to risk yellowing. If, on the other hand, the stains persist, the advice is to repeat the procedure by soaking the garment again and, above all, to avoid the dryer because it could fix the stain even more.
