Spaghetti / Tomato Sauce Removal

The tomato juice in spaghetti sauce makes this a difficult spot to treat. Sometimes the spot may appear orange, rather than red.

Basic Method

  1. Apply Matrix Spot Out undiluted. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel.
  2. Rinse with cool water.
  3. Apply Matrix Release undiluted. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel.
  4. Rinse with water.
  5. Apply Matrix Target Tannin Stain Remover. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel
  6. If some spot remains, apply Matrix Advanced Stain Remover mixed in equal parts of solutions A & B and cover with plastic until stain is gone (this may take several hours).

Warning and Cautions: Always test material for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix product unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
