Custom dress shirt are considered as the main item of men’s wardrobe because dress shirts are used almost daily by men as it is the most formal dressing. In office, business meetings, parties, weddings, etc. dress shirts are used. While using dress shirts most of us often end up having a stain on our shirts. In order to safe shirt from permanent stain, you should act as fast as possible. The stains get harder to remove when they remain unattended for long time. Let us just give you tips for removing red wine and paint based stains all by yourself.

Red Wine Stains

Red wine stains are one of the stains to which shirts are most exposed. Well, it is a natural phenomenon to accidently drop the red wine while drinking or talking with glass in hand. If it happens to you, first thing is to act swiftly but never panic as you might also end up in dropping some more. Red wine stain is quite hard and if it dries or remains unattended for long time then for sure your custom dress shirt is ruined. The best way to remove any stain is to start from blotting to remove excess liquid. Never rub, as it will further spread the stain. If you have access with white wine, then pure a little to dilute the red color, if white wine is not available then try club soda. To use club soda, take a cloth of light color and wet it with club soda then damp the affected area with piece of cloth.

You can also do the cleaning process by mixing one teaspoon of detergent in half cup of hydrogen peroxide. Remember never rub, just blot the affected area with solution. Keep blotting until the stain is totally removed and then wash the dress shirt normally.

Paint stains

No matter what happened, you should take immediate action after the paint drops on the shirt. Small quantity of paint stain can be removed if attended right away. However, if it has damaged large part of the shirt then it is simply irremovable. There are two kinds of paints, oil based paint and water based paint. Let us start with water-based paint, as it is easy to remove. First, remove all the excess paint from the dress shirt with help of knife or any other instrument. Then soak the affected area into warm water and blot it while keeping the affected area dipped in water. This process will remove most of the water-based paint stain, however, to completely remove it from fibers, use a soft toothbrush and smoothly brush the affected area. If the water based paint stain on dress shirt remained unattended and got dried, its still fixable but will need more effort. Dip the affected area in warm water for a day and repeat the above-mentioned process again.

Oil based paint stains are the most hard to remove stains as water, cleaning detergents or chemicals have no effect on oil paint. The only thing that will help is paint thinner. First, thoroughly remove the excess paint from shirt with help of sharp instrument like knife. Then take paint thinner or kerosene oil, but thinner is preferable as it is more effective. Dip the affected area in thinner and smoothly rub the stain while being dipped. Change the thinner and repeat the process with new thinner, keep repeating the process until most of the stain is removed. In end, get a detergent and blot the remaining oil paint stains with help of brush. Hopefully you will end up cleaning the stains from you shirt. However, if the oil paint has dried up or remained unattended for even some time then it is impossible to fully remove the stain.
