Keys to Pink Stain Prevention: Inhibiting Bacterial Growth and Sealing the Substrate

Pink stain is a common problem on marine fabrics such as seating cushions, upholstery, flooring and other vinyl surfaces. Once the stain happens, it is there to stay. There is no conventional way to clean pink stain because the dye causing the stain has been absorbed and is no longer on the surface.
