We are in the preliminary stages of planning our Thanksgiving day here and for me and my girls that means choosing which tablecloth and napkin set, we’ll use this year.  We all have our favorites and it really won’t matter to me which ones we choose as long as they are clean and wrinkle-free.  I love table linens and was fortunate enough to be gifted some vintage tablecloths from my Grandmother in Law and three handmade doilies from my Grandmother. 

The fact that she crocheted these doilies herself make them even more special to me, so I decided early on to bring them out only during the holidays to preserve their beauty. Sadly, there was a staining mishap the last time I had them out. I didn’t realize there was a stain until the next day, so it set in and I was afraid it may never come out until I remembered, I’m a Biz Stain Fighter Ambassador! Read on to see how you can prep your holiday linens with Biz just like I did.

Being a Biz Ambassador this year has been a fun and rewarding experience. I’ve learned quite a bit about their unique products, which includes Biz liquid, Biz liquid booster pods and the original in a box dry product, which is what I’ll be using today. 

I’ve chosen to use a half cup of Biz powder to soak the doilies because it is how my Mom ad probably my Grandmom would treat this stain.

Even though it isn’t a huge stain or even that noticeable, I’m excited to see if Biz, the go-to Stain Eliminator can help with this old, set in stain safely. I don’t want to put these delicate doilies in the wash, so I’m going to start with a half a cup of Biz in warm water for 20 minutes.

 How to Soak Stained Holiday Linens: 

Step One:

Before you begin soaking, please be sure to test your linens for colorfastness. You can do this by dabbing a small amount of cleaning solution on the back side corner of the linen with a soft white cotton cloth of white paper towel. Check spot in 5 minutes to see if any changes in color have taken place. If you notice any color changes, rinse dabbed area immediately in cool water. Then wash linen as you would normally. Chances are nobody will ever notice the slight discoloration where you tested linen and another washing may help remove the stain you wanted to treat. 

Step Two: 

 In a clean dishpan, mix ½ cup Biz Stain remover powder to 4 cups warm water.

Step Three:

Gently agitate Biz powder with your hand until all powder dissolves. It will bubble slightly.

Step Four: 

Add linens to dishpan and gently slosh in water. Make sure the linens are completely submerged in the solution. Add more warm water if needed.  Set aside and allow to soak for a minimum of 15 minutes.

Step Five:

After 15 minutes, I checked the status of my stained doilie. The water had started turning a little yellow, and the stain had gotten smaller and even less noticeable, but still there. I decided to let it soak for an additional 15 minutes.

Step Six: 

After the full 30 minute soak, the doilies are snowy white and clean, so I wrung them out and hung them over the shower rod to air dry. With the exception of just a hint of yellow where the stain was. I’m sure nobody will be able to spot that wee little mark unless I pointed it out.  

I’m very pleased with how well Biz Stain Fighter worked! Not only did it work on the actual stain I wanted to remove, but it also pulled out some yellowing that I couldn’t detect until I saw it in the water! We are a non-smoking family, so I’m guessing the yellowing came from the candles I usually have sitting atop the doilies.
