According to the nature of the stain, choose a suitable cleaning agent to remove it. Several treatment methods for common stains are as follows:
Use sodium hypochlorite diluent (bleaching agent) for stains such as tea stains, fruit stains, coffee, sauce vinegar, leather shoe prints, and soak for 20-30 minutes before use. Wipe clean with a cloth. Some stains that have penetrated into the bricks for a long time need to be soaked for several hours;

Use hydrochloric acid or phosphoric acid solution for cement, scale, rust and rust spots, and wipe it several times;
Use alkaline cleaners or organic solvents (5-ketone, triethylene) for paint, oil stains, oily markers, and surface antifouling wax layer, paint and grease removal agents;
Contamination method: first soak in 20%-40% sodium hydroxide solution for 24 hours and then wipe it with a cloth, and then soak it with 30%-50% hydrochloric acid solution for 30 minutes and then wipe it with a cloth;
