Stains On Restaurant Uniforms
Total Articles: 118
Stains and restaurant uniforms almost go hand in hand - it seems that you can't have one without the other.
Most uniforms, especially those for the restaurant and hospitality industry, have stain release or stain guard. But there are still no guarantees that your uniforms won't stain, especially when dealing with wine or, our personal favorite, tomato sauce! Stains can still occur because men, women, and children in any type of uniform eat. No matter how careful someone is when eating, there will come a time when food ends up on his or her uniform. The only way to prevent it would be to wear a bib, which we know isnt practical. When working in a busy restaurant kitchen or bar, it is almost inevitable that spills will occur, however, when wearing uniforms with stain release, the uniform will wash up pretty easy and there will be no stains.
Nevertheless, stain release and stain guard do not translate to stain proof! The best thing to do is to avoid getting food stains on uniforms. Here are some hints to keep uniforms from becoming stained by food:
Wear an apron when doing food prep
If possible or practical, avoid messy foods (especially those that are greasy or have a red sauce)
Change out of uniform when eating
Dont eat in the car (especially while driving)
Lean over table or plate when eating
When being careful doesn't work or when your workplace makes it impossible and impracctical to avoid stains and food gets on a uniform from drippy, greasy, messy, or melting food, clean as much as possible as fast as possible. Be familiar with food stain removal and have a pocket stain removal stick handy.
How do you know which food stains will be released and which ones wont? There are no guarantees, but if you see the stain on the wrong side (inside) of the fabric, chances are you will need to treat the stain.
Ways to treat food stains on uniforms:
Clean off as much as possible immediately
Follow stain removal instructions for type of stain
Pre-treat before washing uniform
Treat immediately with a pocket stain stick
Soak before washing
