Not another mud stain!

The time of the year when the dry streets of Kathmandu suddenly start to get all wet and muddy. With pot holes and sewers overflowing with rain water (and more) and those muddy gallies, it’s literally impossible not to get some mud stains on your wardrobe. Here are a few pointers to help you take care of your clothes this monsoon.

Stains – muddy or any other, weaken the fabric. Also the longer they are left untreated, the more stubborn they get. Get rid of the stain as soon as possible.

The best way to fight a mud stain is to let the mud dry. Then gently brush it of with a soft brush.

Next rub some detergent on the stains and let it remain for a couple of minutes. Then you wash it off.

For the tougher stains, use warm water. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

Check if the fabric is colorfast or not. You wouldn’t want spots of faded colors on your clothes. Test on a small unexposed part with some detergent. If the color washes off, it’s not colorfast. If it’s not colorfast take your clothes to professional cleaners.
