What Stain Solver Won't Clean

While Stain Solver does a great job cleaning so many things, there are a few things that it won't clean effectively, and a few materials that you should avoid using it with.

The big stain category that Stain Solver doesn't work on is rust stains. For this we recommend using oxalic acid, but doing so very carefully! That stuff is not nearly as gentle as Stain Solver. 

The materials that Stain Solver could damage are wool and silk for fabrics, and aluminum for metals.
