4. If necessary, allow a 1:10 diluted bleach solution to puddle on the affected area or apply with a soaked cloth for approximately 30 minutes. Rinse with a water-dampened cloth to remove any remaining bleach concentration.
NOTE: You should try this method on an inconspicuous spot before using it on the original stain/soiling.
