We all have accidents, and sometimes, this involves spilling wine or coffee or butter on your favourite item of clothing. So how do you get rid of stains from clothes? Follow our step-by-step guide to remove stains from your favourite wool clothing.

But if you do accidentally spill something on your favourite item of clothing and need to get rid of a stain, these handy tips will have your clothes looking as new in no time.
