Now that summer is officially here, the smell of BBQs is everywhere! For many Brits, BBQs are a great way of socialising with friends and family, with tasty dishes sizzling away.

However, the summery celebrations can quickly be dampened by the inevitable spills that come from preparing and eating food alfresco-style. Whether it is an accidental drip of ketchup on your white shirt or charcoal from the BBQ, these blemishes can prove tough to remove.

Luckily cleaning and laundry experts, Dr. Beckmann have identified the top ten most common BBQ stains and shared their top tips.

Dr. Beckmann spokesperson, Chloe Baker said: “BBQs are a classic summer pastime, whether you’re cooking up burgers, kebabs, or halloumi on the grill, it’s the perfect chance to bring family and friends together for some fun in the sun.”

“However, setting up your BBQ can often be tricky and charcoal soot has a nasty habit of getting everywhere. If you find yourself with a mark, your first instinct might be to apply soapy water to it, but when it comes to charcoal this is the last thing you should do. Instead, lightly brush or vacuum as much of the charcoal dust off your clothes as you can, this will prevent the charcoal stain from spreading further across the fabric. Next, pre-treat the stain with a specialised stain remover and leave to soak. Finally, pop your clothes into the washing machine with a laundry detergent like Dr. Beckmann’s Magic Leaves Laundry Detergent Sheets. These dissolvable pre-measured sheets work in temperatures as low as 20°C, so they’re perfect for households looking to save a little extra on their energy bill!

“BBQs are also the prime time to enjoy a glass, or two of wine, but with excitable family members around, an unfortunate spillage is no surprise. If you have an accident on your outdoor upholstery furniture, immediately remove the cushion or cover from your furniture to prevent it from seeping further than the surface. Once removed, blot the alcohol with a dry cloth to remove the excess liquid and sponge with a mix of cold water and washing up liquid, before following with a dedicated stain remover such as Dr. Beckmann’s Upholstery Stain Remover. Before applying, shake the bottle then gently squeeze to moisten the applicator brush. Hold the bottle so the applicator is flat against the soiled area and allow the liquid to foam, rather than soak the stain. Leave for three minutes before blotting with a damp white cloth to remove all residues of the stain and solution – leaving your outdoor furniture stain free and ready for your next summer hosting! We hope that these handy tips help you to tackle any stubborn BBQ stains that come your way, so you can get back outside and enjoy the good weather!”
