Tips and tricks for stain removal and for washing and cleaning with Sonett products
Fruit, grass and vegetable stains
Apply Sonett Gall Soap, leave for a few minutes, rinse out and wash as normal. Please test the colour fastness of the garment on a small hidden area before treating the stain.
Apply some undiluted Sonett Orange Power Cleaner, leave for a few minutes and then wash out. This is ideal for removing fat stains on delicate garments. Or treat with Sonett Gall Soap or Sonett Stain Removal Spray, see above.
Felt tip and ink
Can generally be removed well with Sonett Gall Soap or Sonett Stain Removal Spray.
Milk, blood and protein stains
Thoroughly rinse out all protein stains using cold water, then, if necessary, treat with Sonett Gall Soap.
Coffee and tea stains
Pre-treat the stain with lemon juice or Sonett Laundry Rinse, rinse thoroughly and then wash as normal. Light fabrics can be washed as normal with Sonett Bleach Complex (50 °C / 122 °F), without any pre-treatment.
Cocoa and chocolate stains
Spray on Sonett Stain Removal Spray and leave on to be effective for 10 minutes, then rinse or put garment straight into the washing machine.

Rust and old blood stains
Place the stain in Sonett Laundry Rinse, rinse with cold water and then wash as normal using Sonett Bleach Complex, if possible.
