Soot is a combination stain that contains particulates like carbon and dirt, as well as oil. Because of the stain’s particulate nature, you not only have to deal with clothes with unsightly black patches, but soot stains also transfer easily. It’s important not to let soot stains sit for long on your clothes, because the older the stain, the more difficult it will be to remove, as the soot particles work into the fabric fibres. Washing and drying soot stains without treating them can cause the stains to become embedded in the fabric. The good news is it’s easy to remove them with Ariel. Just follow our simple steps on how to remove soot stains below.
Removing soot stains
Shake off any excess soot from the garment, taking care not to spread the stain further or to grind the soot into the fabric. Then, rinse the item inside out under cold, running water.
Pour Ariel Original Washing Liquid directly onto the stain to pre-treat.
Carefully wring out any excess water and place the garment into the washing machine with similar items.
You can use the pre-treat cap to ensure that you use the correct dose of washing detergent. Just fill it up and place it directly into your washing machine on top of your soot stained clothes.
Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated by the fabric care label.
When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
