Stains are inevitable and they can occur for a variety of reasons. Either an accidental splash of sauce, a spilled coffee, or some random repair with your car. The thing is, it could happen, and it’s better to be ready so that you can easily eliminate the stain once it happens. This video tutorial by Gentleman’s Gazette on YouTube is the best stain tutorial out there on the internet as it tackles every stain possible, and shows an effective solution.



  • Bleach alternative or SPC
  • Towel
  • Cloth
  • Brush
  • Spray bottle
  • Water
  • Vinegar
  • Laundry detergent or soap flakes


Step 1: Organic stains

Standard organic stains are best treated with hot water and a substance known as a bleach alternative. Bleach alternative and oxygen bleach are marketing names for a substance that’s scientifically known as sodium percarbonate or SPC, this is an active ingredient in cleaners like Oxiclean but those types of commercial cleaners usually contain fillers, and SPC is most effective in its pure form. To remove an organic stain, start by laying a towel, then add some SPC or about half a cap to a basin of hot water, and stir them together until dissolved. Next, soak the garment in the water and SPC mixture until thoroughly wet, then lay it on the towel, and start gently blotting the stain with a clean cotton cloth, washcloth, or a towel. You can also use a brush if you want, then once done, you can wash the garment as usual with added SPC if preferred.

Step 2: Inorganic stains

Standard inorganic stains are best treated with solvent, like rubbing alcohol or more technically isopropyl alcohol, but you can also use plain vodka. Simply apply the alcohol to the garment using a spray bottle, then gently blot it, and wash as you normally would with some SPC if preferred. Now for oily stains, it is best to deal with the oil first. To remove the first layer of oil, fill a spray bottle with a solution of 50% vinegar and 50% water, then spray it onto the stain, and blot. Next, apply some water together with laundry detergent or soap flakes, then scrub the stain, and for the final layer, spray again with the water and vinegar solution. Give it another blot and scrub for the last time, then wash it as you normally would with some SPC if preferred. Now, to know more about other stains such as sweat, go and watch the video tutorial for more detailed instructions.
