Product description

A field guide to identifying and doing battle with more than 100 stains, from tomato juice to tar, from avocado to urine. Field Guide to Stains is divided into handy sections for easy accessibility to information when time is of the essence: Fruits and Vegetables, Meat and Protein, Dairy Products, Sauces and Condiments, Beverages, Household Items and Miscellany, Garage and Yard, and Office and School Products. Readers will learn more than just removal techniques - details include general descriptions and likely seasons, times, and areas of occurrence. Did you know that a yoghurt stain is more likely to occur in January (when New Year's resolutions demand more healthy eating), and that correction fluid stains are more prevalent in April (when the pressure to complete your taxes on time is at a high)? A full-colour insert features more than 100 photographs of stains for easy identification, and each photograph is cross-referenced to the stain's in-depth description and step-by-step removal advice. Includes quick-reference icons to guide the reader to the most essential information in each entry. This field guide has a sturdy, stain-proof exterior - making it a necessity for every cubicle, glove compartment, visit to the fast food restaurant, and college dorm. A must-have for everyone about to venture out into the wild, to the kitchen, or to a night on the town!
