How to remove dirt stains

Dirt stains seem to appear from nowhere, and removing this particulate stain may seem difficult at first. When it comes to treating dirt, it’s important to treat the stain as soon as possible. Particulate stains are best removed using compounds known as “builders”, which help to soften the water during washes by removing positive metal ions in the water. This helps you remove dirt stains easily, so use a washing detergent like Ariel with this dirt stain removal ingredient. Follow the steps below and find out how to remove dirt stains from clothes.
