How to Use Spotting Chemicals in Laundry and Dry Cleaning

Please note our spotters are for professional use only by dry cleaners and commercial laundries.

Select the most appropriate spotter to use depending on the type of stain. Use our helpful Spotting Chart to choose the correct spotting agent.

Always perform a hem test when first applying Spotters to any textile, in particular delicates. If the hem test causes any colour lift do not use Spotters on stained area of textile.

Apply a few drops of Spotter to stain. Moreover, remember to use powerful spotting agents sparingly!

Use a spatula or spotting brush to gently work in Detaprofi Series Spotters to the stained area. Mechanical action helps loosen stains. However, do not apply a spatula or spotting brush to very delicate fibres where there is a risk of causing damage.

Leave Spotter to react with stain for up to 20 minutes maximum.

Rinse out Spotter prior to putting textiles in to dry cleaning machine. However, this step is not required if textile is being cleaned in water i.e. laundry or wet cleaning.

The only exception is Detaprofi Ferex which should be rinsed out prior to putting treated texitle in a washing machine. This is to avoid Ferex from corroding a washing drum machine because of it’s very powerful cleaning properties.

Cover over wet area with pre-brushing soap prior to dry cleaning because this helps improve stain removal results.
