Most common mistakes/myths


Probably the most common myth about getting out spots is the use of seltzer. Not only is there no benefit to putting seltzer on a stain it could actually be detrimental. Seltzer gets its fizz from injected carbon dioxide, CO2, which can become carbonic acid and actually eat away at the fibers of your clothes. On cotton, linen or polyester, water would be recommended as long as the stain does not contain oil, like in salad dressing…remember oil and water don’t mix.
