          If you are one who smokes frequently, then you must be acquainted with those yellowish brown nicotine stains which mar your clothes and make you look unsightly among your peers. These tobacco stained clothes affect the impression people perceive from you and consequently it might have a negative impact on your career or social relations.

         On the other hand it is neither practically possible to discard away every single piece of clothing which gets stained with nicotine, nor can you quit smoking in a matter of days, particularly if you happen to be a chain smoker.

           To aid you in this troubling situation, hereby we provide you with some effective stain removal techniques which will make sure that you get rid of these aggravating nicotine stains. 


Method One

This method is pretty simple yet if followed adequately; it can ensure a satisfactory removal of tobacco stains from clothes.

Things that you will require:

·      Water
·      Bar of soap
·      Enzyme laundry product
·      Chlorine bleach

Steps that you need to take:


1.   The first step includes moistening the stain with water.  Once the stain has dampened, take hold of a bar of soap and use it to rub the stain. Rubbing the stain will agitate the stain particles, prompting them to come off the fabric’s surface.

2.   Afterwards, rinse the stain area thoroughly with clean water.

3.   After making sure that the soap has been satisfactorily rinsed out from the tobacco stain, you need to lay your hands on an enzyme based laundry product. Use this to pretreat the stain for some time, approximately half an hour.

4.   Then, launder the fabric like you normally do.

5.   After laundering, make sure that you have got rid of the tobacco stains before placing the fabric into dryer. However, if the stain is still there then use chlorine bleach to treat the nicotine stain and finally launder the garment.


Method Two

          Vinegar is a renowned cleansing agent and owing to this reason it is deployed in various stain removal techniques. Similarly, this method also deploys this very ingredient to get rid of any stubborn nicotine stains.

Things that you will require:

·      Glycerin
·      Dish washing detergent
·      Water
·      A large jar
·      Sponge
·      Vinegar
·      Cotton pad/white cloth
·      Water

Steps that you need to take:

1.   The first step involves the making of a cleaning solution. To make this solution, you will have to combine one part of glycerin with one part dish washing detergent and eight parts of water. Keep this cleaning solution into a jar with the lid tightly closed so that it doesn’t evaporate.

2.   Now, you will have to apply this cleaning solution onto the tobacco stained area with the help of a sponge. Rub this sponge in a gentle, circular motion so that the cleaning solution can be worked into the stain.

3.   Afterwards, pour a few drops of white vinegar onto the nicotine stain and cover it appropriately with a cotton pad or white cloth.

4.   Allow this pad to sit on the stain for some time until the stain is picked up by it.

5.   Remove the pad when the stain gets out of the garment’s surface. Follow this step with a rinse of water and eventually, launder the garment like you normally do.

Warning:

               Before applying any cleaning agent onto the stained area, primarily apply it on some indiscreet area of the cloth so that you can ensure that it doesn’t damage the fabric’s surface.
