How to Clean Indian Food Stains – Use Stain Solver!
Brett sent me this note and the photos:
“You made my wife a believer in Stain Solver. She had ordered Some Indian takeout that ended up on her white jeans!
She was out of town so she just rinsed off as mush as she could at the hotel. When she got back home she laundered the jeans with bleach. Well, I guess bleach and curry don’t mix. It turned the once yellow stain to a red stain.
I grabbed a bucket, filled it with a gallon of water and added 4 scoops of Stain Solver. Let it soak for 6 hours. Rinsed and repeated, but let it sit overnight. The next morning the stain was gone!! Amazing stuff.”
Clean Colored Fabric – Stain Solver is Color-Safe!
Stain Solver safely cleans:
colored cotton fabric
colored polyester fabric
wool colored with synthetic dye
silk colored with synthetic dye
It’s best to soak any fabric to get it clean. Most washing machines have a soak cycle. Soak for up to three hours, then spin the dial and wash normally.
If the fabric is upholstery, watch this video to see how I’d clean it if you invited me over to your home:
Hi, I’m Tim Carter, co-founder of Stain Solver.
I want to show you how easy it is to remove upholstery stains using certified organic Stain Solver. Stain Solver is both color and fabric safe so you’ve got nothing to worry about.
This happens to be a cat vomit stain. Stain Solver will work to clean any food or liquid stain.
You do the same thing to clean all stains. Mix 2 tablespoons of Stain Solver with 16 ounces of warm or hot water. Stir for one minute, until all of the Stain Solver dissolves.
Remove any solids from the stained upholstery and saturate the stain with the solution. It’s best to saturate the entire cushion, as spot cleaning will not work well if the entire cushion is dirty.
Allow the solution to work for 30 minutes or even an hour. The longer you allow the Stain Solver solution to work, the easier your upholstery will be. At the end of the wait period, blot the stain with a clean towel. Rinse with clear water, and blot until you remove as much moisture as possible.
Look at how clean the cushion is. It’s remarkable! The stain is completely gone.
I want to remind you that spot cleaning can be a little problematic. Your upholstery may be a little dirty and you don’t realize it. When you clean just clean one spot, that spot gets very clean and believe me you’ll be able to see the difference.
I also want to let you know that some stains, even after you clean them and they’re still wet, there’s a shadow of the stain there. But for some odd reason, once the upholstery dries, the stain disappears. That can happen with yellow mustard and a few other types of food stains. So let it dry and see what happens.

“Just wanted to let you know I followed the instructions you provided to clean the grease from atop the cabinets in the kitchen and it cleaned beautifully using your Stain Solver product. I’ve been purchasing your products for years now and always have been happy with the results.”
I told George to mix up a solution, put it in a simple spray bottle and spritz the grease pretty well. I then told him to WAIT about 15 minutes and then wipe the cabinets with a solution of Stain Solver and a little bit of Dawn liquid dish soap. The grease comes off immediately.
Remove Green Algae From Roof – Easy with Stain Solver
Watch this video to see the way you and I would remove green algae from your roof:
Guess what we got here? Roof algae! What is it? Well, it’s a microscopic organism that feeds off of calcium carbonate or powdered limestone, that’s in the asphalt shingles.
Does it hurt the shingles? No!
Does that mean you need a new roof? No, but a lot of people have it and they want to clean it off.
Some roofs also have regular green algae that comes from trees and things that are near the houses. Well there’s a way to clean that off as well.
Here’s what you do. The way to clean off roof algae is to go ahead and mix up some oxygen bleach with water. It’s a powder. It’s safe. It doesn’t take the color out of the shingles, and it doesn’t hurt the shingles or vegetation or anything else near your home.
What you do is put it into a pump sprayer. Spray it on the roof, and you need to keep the roof wet with the solution for about ten or fifteen minutes.
The oxygen bleach starts to go ahead and attack the roof algae. It does its best to kill it and take away the stains.
Take a scrub brush, lightly scrub the shingles. Apply more solution if you have to to get a nice workable solution. Then once the shingles are clean, you go ahead and take a hose and just rinse the roof off.
It’s really that simple. Okay, this roof’s going to need a second application. Maybe even a third one. It was extra dirty.
Now there’s a couple of safety tips I want to tell you about. When working on a roof, first off, all roofs are slippery. When you get them wet. they’re even more slippery. And when you put on oxygen bleach, they are even more slippery. So make sure you’re very careful. Wear some good sturdy gym shoes that give you good traction. Also try to work on the roofs when it’s cooler, maybe in the morning, or on a cloudy overcast day. Never try to work when it’s extremely hot and extremely sunny. It makes the oxygen bleach evaporate too fast.
Be careful if you’re trying to clean roof algae off your roof.

Stain Solver Saves White Shirts from Cranberry Juice
Peggy Sparrow, who lives in Illinois, wrote to me:
“I just wanted to let you know Stain Solver saved my white sleeveless top as well as my son’s and husband’s clothes last week. We were visiting our son Peter at the University of Dayton for parents’ weekend and while at breakfast, our waitress spilled a full-to-the-brim glass of cranberry juice all over us.
Peter was sure his favorite shirt was ruined, but I told him I’d take his clothes home and work on them. Stain Solver to the rescue—it got the stains our of both my husband’s and son’s clothes. They were quite impressed! Unfortunately, I got to work immediately and didn’t take pictures of their clothes, but you can see how it cleaned my favorite white top.”
Stain Solver is both fabric and color-safe. You get the BEST RESULTS by soaking the entire garment overnight in a solution of Stain Solver.
