I have made up two similar sentences below.

(1) The red stains are difficult to remove.

(2) The red stains are difficult to be removed.

Which one is correct? Thanks for your help.

Ansonman,

(1) is correct.  It is also possible, though definitely not preferable, to say:

2a: It is difficult for red stains to be removed.
