Mustard Stains

Mustard Stains

Mustard is difficult to remove because it is a “Disperse Dye”. Disperse dye particles are held to the surface of the fiber by friction and strong electrical forces. This means that if you encounter a mustard spot, do not guarantee you will be able to completely remove the stain. There may be times when 100% success may not be reached without damaging the fiber.



Step 1 – Remove as much of the residue from the spot as possible using a spotting towel

Step 2 – Apply Avenge Pro to stained fibers only

Step 3 – Agitate lightly

Step 4 – Rinse thoroughly. Leave as dry as possible, even blotting with a towel

Step 5 – If no color remains, Mist with Spot Stop, and brush in with a Whiz Groom

If color remains (if it has turmeric there will be color):

Step 6 – Apply Stain Zone to the stained fibers only

Step 7 – Place a damp towel over the stain

Step 8 – Place a UV flashlight, the type used for urine detection. Invert the flashlight over the stain to provide the greatest concentration of UV light to the stain. Check every 5 minutes. If there is any indication of color loss from the carpet, discontinue use.

Step 9 – Rinse thoroughly

Step 10 – Mist with Spot Stop, and brush in with a Whiz Groom

Step 11 – Dry quickly with air mover.


Note: Stain Zone may be accelerated with heat but this can result in dye loss from the fiber. Extra caution should be used to keep the Stain Zone only on the contaminated fiber with careful monitoring of progress if heat is applied.
