When you’ve just thrown tea all over yourself, or a big dollop of hair dye drops onto your lovely white (handmade!) top, your first reaction is going to be blind panic – or at least mine has been in the past, anyway! We go to the internet to try and figure out what should be done, but there are so many different opinions that it all ends up being more confusing… which is why I decided to write this book! After lots of research and pouring all sorts of things on all sorts of fabric scraps and trying to get them out, I’ve put all of my knowledge into this book for you, so that you’ll be able to tackle any sort of stain that you come across.
