Beware

Called out today to deal with a child’s make-up stain on a beautiful wool bedroom carpet. When I got there however, someone in the home had used a product called Dr Beckmann. It had completely bleached the carpet of it’s natural colour and still left the stain behind.

Please do be careful! Read the label first, and do test in an inconspicuous area first.

Unfortunately, the product used by the householder was actually a laundry stain remover which specified not to be used on wool, cotton or natural fibres, and was to rinsed off immediately in the washing machine.

It pays to always read the label and follow it’s advice.
