Stains on fabrics – Floor polish
Floor polish. Fresh stains are washed off with gasoline or a mixture of ether and spirit. The solvent saturated with wax must soak well into the piece of linen placed under the fabric. An old dry crust made of paste, scraped first with a blunt knife, then the stained area is moistened with stain remover or carbon tetrachloride, placing an absorbent foundation under the fabric. Products made of polyvinyl chloride fibers are stained with ether, gasoline or common solvent. Acetate fabrics are damaged, under the influence of ether or alcohol so they can only be cleaned with gasoline.
