A Quick Guide to Removing Linen Stains in Your Airbnb

A clean and inviting space is the key to happy guests but, stains happen, and it’s essential to know how to tackle them like a pro. In this quick guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to bid farewell to those stubborn stains and keep your linens looking fresh.

Act Quickly
The first rule of stain removal is to address it as soon as possible. The longer a stain sits, the harder it is to remove. So, don’t procrastinate!

Identify the Stain
Before diving in, identify the type of stain you’re dealing with. Common culprits include wine, coffee, and makeup. Different stains may require different treatment.

Blot, Don’t Rub
For liquid stains, gently blot the excess liquid with a clean cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing as it can push the stain deeper into the fabric.

Apply a stain remover or a mixture of dish soap and water to the stain. Let it sit for a few minutes to break down the stain.

Wash with Care
Follow the care instructions on your linens. Use cold water for delicate fabrics and warm water for sturdy ones. Avoid hot water, as it can set some stains.

Use the Right Detergent
Choose a high-quality, color-safe detergent. It’s gentler on fabrics and helps maintain their longevity.

Don’t Overload
Avoid cramming your washing machine. Overloading can prevent thorough cleaning.

Power of Sunlight
If the stain persists, let your linens dry in the sunlight. The UV rays can help fade stubborn stains.

Repeat If Necessary
Don’t be discouraged if the stain isn’t completely gone after one wash. Sometimes, it takes a few attempts.

Prevent Future Stains
Consider providing guests with disposable coasters or makeup remover wipes to minimize future stains.

Investing in quality linens makes stain removal easier, and it’s a wise investment in the long run. Following these steps will keep your linens looking fresh and your Airbnb guests smiling.
