Beverage and Yellow Stains

Uncategorized Oct 21, 2015 No Comments

These stains originate from accidental contact with soft drinks, tea, coffee, juices, beer, wine, fruits, candy, or any other foods or beverages that contain sugarS.  After any moisture evaporates from the substances only an invisible residue remains. Over a period of time in storage this residue will attract oxygen from the air and oxidize, eventually becoming yellowish and notice- able. This type of staining is often referred to as “invisible stains.” Since these stains are basically water soluble, they are not readily removed by dry cleaning. Subsequently, the heat of tumble drying and/or steam pressing after dry cleaning accelerates oxidation of the residue and causes the stains to become much more visible.
