How do you prevent Sugar and Tannin Stains?

Stains in this category include fruit juices, coffee, tea, soft drinks such as root beer, coca cola, etc, tomatoes, beer and others. When these substances first contact a garment, they are not very evident and in many instances, they do not appear to have stained the garment.

Neither you nor the dry cleaner is aware that these stains are present until after they have been set by the heat in part of the cleaning process. When this happens, it is too late to remove the stains. You should immediately sponge these stains off lightly with cool water and then take the garments to the cleaner. Please notify your dry cleaner about the stains.
