Brown stains have developed during washing
Brown stains appearing on laundry after washing are generally the result of pollen, juice or sap. These stains tend to turn brown over the course of time. This is the result of exposure to oxygen and insufficient laundry treatment.
Stains on delicate summer clothing:
Treat stains before washing using a stain remover. Allow the stain remover to work for approx. 10 minutes. Follow care instructions and wash garments by hand or in a washing machine. Use a detergent for delicates and a stain remover.
Stains on white or colored clothing:
Please use additional stain remover in wash cycles and select the highest temperature allowed by wash-care labels.
