Clean Perfume Stains With Baking Soda And Ammonia

by Taylor

Here are some instruction for how to clean perfume stains from your clothing.

Perfume can cause yellow stains on your clothing. This yellow color comes from the perfume, which can be acidic in nature, yellowing your clothes through acid damage.

To get out the stain caused by the perfume you need to neutralize the perfume as quickly as possible by sprinkling baking soda on it.

Further, to clean perfume stains make a paste of baking soda and ammonia and apply this to the stained area.

Make sure to test it in an inconspicuous area first, to make sure it does not harm the fabric.

Then, let the paste dry, preferably in the sun, before laundering. That yellow stain should come right out.
