Preface - 

Home care requires the utmost skill and ingenuity of the homemaker. Because of the extremely high standard of dress and personal hygiene in this country, endless care and effort is expended in order to maintain this acute attention to good grooming. For the homemaker, the removal of stains represents a major portion of her expertness in running her home successfully. Each member of her family contributes his and her share of stains not only in the natural use of their surroundings, but more often in their use of wearing apparel. The frequent need for removing stains from clothing bears heavily upon the budget where one is completely dependent upon professional cleaning. 

To meet this challenge, the thrifty and efficient homemaker seeks information and the means by which she can care for garments, household linen, and household furnishings. The professional cleaner is equally alert in keeping abreast with information that concerns his work and efficiency. Textile fabrics are of the greatest variety and complexity in their chemical and physical composition. Also the stains are often complex in nature since a stain may be composed of several staining substances such as, for example, machine oil which in addition to the oil, may contain particles of metal and carbon. The dry cleaner in the end is sought for his special skill and experience in dealing with complex stains and for the reconditioning of a fabric as near as possible to its original physical condition and appearance. 

This book is designed to present basic facts and give simple rules and directions for the use of the homemaker who can then remove spots and stains effectively and economically. The book also affords the dry cleaner with a ready reference to the stain removing chemicals and the procedures in applying them. The dry cleaning industry and allied industries where spot and stain removal are of interest, should welcome an up-to-date and simplified treatment of this subject which includes information on the newer fibers, fabrics, and dyes.
