Time and patience are the keys to stain removal. In the event of a spill, take time to carefully read the following procedures and then follow them thoroughly. Repeat procedures as long as there is improvement. If a spill is attended to immediately, it may be possible to remove the spill by blotting with a slightly damp paper towel, followed by repetitive cold water sprays and further blotting with a dry paper towel. If this procedure fails to remove the stain fully, then follow the procedures outlined below.
