Hi, I have white towels and a two towels after a client treatment were stained over a large area with brown. I thought it might be self-tanning or something but have tried several methods to remove the stain and nothing has worked yet. Any ideas? Kind regards Jane

I had a towel stained brown - turned out to be henna from a fake tattoo - had to dump it, nothing worked. Hope it isn't that.
Could only suggest weak bleach if towel is white.

|Thanks it it such a large area - like the back. I dont know how much bleach to use as last time i tried that on a towel part the fibre disintegrated. Do you know what proportion bleach to water. Thanks a lot|

|You might try dying the towels black or dark brown, towelling should take a dye well.

Over the years I've had whites stain:( a fairly new sheet. I'd used strong Ariel to no avail. I put it on the clothes line on a sunny day and hey presto - turned white:)) Try that or as said before, dye it

|I use Ace laundry bleach which you pre-treat with and agitate into the fabric then add a little more to the wash. Also add a good large handful of DP Washing/Laundry soda crystals to the machine along with bio soap powder (laundry liquids are not as good) - this I do routinely as it's really good at getting oily towels properly clean, and yes, dry in the sun wherever possible.|

|Thanks everyone for good advice. I will try again. I am using a liquid, so will get bio powder and also try the crystals and hang on line. Not giving up yet. Jane|

|Crystals should be about 90p/kilo in supermarket. Don't get from Robert Dyas as they seem to charge the earth! Be careful that its DP laundry soda in green bag, and not caustic soda for drains!|

|Try dyeing them brown in the washing machine.|

|Sorry someone has already suggested that.|
