Then, you’ll use a clean cloth to gently remove the outer, surface level, stains. Then you’ll spray the stain remover solution on the stain and allow it to sit for approximately five minutes. Lastly, dab at the stain with a clean absorbent cloth. This should remove the stain, however if the stain remains stubborn, repeat the steps as necessary.
