The best way to remove stains from wool clothes


We all have accidents, and sometimes, this involves spilling wine or coffee or butter on your favourite item of clothing. So how do you get rid of stains from clothes? Follow our step-by-step guide to remove stains from your favourite wool clothing.

Wool is easy to care for and the natural fibre’s inherent benefits such as resistance to both odour and stains mean that wool clothes require less washing and at lower temperatures compared to clothes made from other fibres. But if you do accidentally spill something on your favourite item of clothing and need to get rid of a stain, these handy tips will have your clothes looking as new in no time.
