Stains and how to remove them are one of the less appealing aspects of life – but this book is here to help, whether you need to clean a red wine spill out of your new cream carpet, save your favourite dress from that stubborn mascara mark or remove nail varnish from your polished wooden table top.


A comprehensive stain directory provides full information on your first and late response measures for every stain and how to deal with the problem on a variety of different surfaces and fabrics. Easy-to-follow sections include Bath and Beauty, In the Kitchen and Life’s Little Accidents – with a fully cross referenced and symbol coded index to enable you to find your stain in an emergency or hurry.


We also spill the full truth on commercial stain removal products and how they work; testing typical commercial brands, eco friendly makes and traditional home remedies against one another to show which ones really do work – with surprising results.


"Once you've moved into a new home, you'll want to keep it pristine for as long as possible. For advice on how to get nail varnish out of a polished wooden table top or a red wine stain out of a cream carpet, Good Housekeeping's book has all the answers."
