AMODEX STAIN TREATMENT
Amodex Ink & Stain Removal is one of my favorite methods for removing a variety of stains.
I’ve tried, and continue to try, many many stain removal products. I actually enjoy testing new ideas in my quest for the best.
But it’s been 7 years, and Amodex is still my Go-To-Boo. It’s the favorite tool in my entire arsenal. (And this from the woman that would go BORG and medically graft a crochet hook to my body if I could)
Today, I am sharing how I best utilize Amodex Ink & Stain Removal and produce awe inspiring results.
Get ready to be amazed.
While Amodex is most famous for ink removal- think marker, pen, ink... it’s also shockingly effective on your average “I can’t even recall the origin- is that wine? Pasta? Toddler drool?” type stain.
Yes. That is its own category of stain.
Anyway. The key to effective stain removal after an Amodex application is 1) blotting and 2) potential multiple applications/soaking. It may take a few rounds, but it's oh so worth it.
apply small amount of Amodex and use a plain paper towel to blot away
Blotting. Once you apply your Amodex Solvent to the ink/stain, it doesn’t simply disintegrate. It’s loosened and now needs to be removed/relocated. Blotting with a paper towel absorbs that dislodged ink and ferries it away from your garment.
You will see the removed color in your paper towel as you continue to dab away at your stain. Especially stubborn spots sometimes needs multiple applications and a longer soaking duration.
Not yet convinced? Ok fine...here's more proof.
I’ve used this solution on woven cotton, knobby sweaters, leather products, synthetic whatever products... it’s always served me well. Test applications to your fabric is not a bad idea- I’ve personally only ever had an oopsie when I left it (forgot...) overnight on some colored pleather and it took off the marker and additional color. 😬
It's great a taking ink off of bag linings.
It also takes magic marker off shoes.
It's like magic. 😮
My other caveat would be to only use plain white paper towels or clothes as you blotting tool. When used with stain remover, Printed/patterned paper towels can bleed onto the garment you are trying to save.
Stain removal is an Art, not a Science.
So to sum up (In my experience):
apply, soak, blot. Depending on your initial results, repeat process again with a longer duration of the “soak” part of the routine.
