Stain Removal Tips
Remove Stains at home
Hydrogen Peroxide: Mix a teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide with a little dab of non-gel toothpaste. Rub the paste onto the stain with a soft cloth, and then Rinse. The stain should be gone.
Dish Soap: Apply a bit of dish soap (Make sure it is uncolored, or the stain will become worse) and let it sit for 5 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water, and voila! The stain is gone!
Baby powder: Pour it onto the stain and press firmly onto it, leave it overnight, and launder the clothing on the next day.
Chalk: You’ve seen the detergent Ad where a little boy saves his friend from punishment at school for his stained uniform, by rubbing chalk onto the stain? Was your mind blown? Well, that notion is actually true! Just rub some chalk onto the stain from oils or grease on your clothing, to absorb the oil. Brush off the chalk before washing, and then launder.
Cornstarch: Sprinkle some cornstarch powder on the stain, let it sit for approximately 10 minutes, and dust it out before washing the fabric. This method works well especially on suede and leather jackets.
Vinegar: Moisten a paper towel with some undiluted white vinegar, and dab the stain before immediately washing. POINT TO NOTE: This method works best on old stains!
Artificial sweetener: According to science, they are terrible for you, but at least they are good for something. Just blot any oil or grease stains with a bit of the Splenda powder and they will be gone! This trick can especially be handy while eating on the go.
Shaving cream: For a foundation or makeup stain, apply shaving cream to the spot, rub gently with a soft cloth and then wash.
Hairspray: Lipstick smudges on your clothes (or your man’s collar)? saturate the area with hairspray, wait for 10 minutes, and then dab with a damp cloth before washing to remove the oils to make the stains go out easier in the laundry.
Baking soda: Make a pasty mixture of baking soda and warm water, and using a toothbrush, firmly apply the paste to the area of the stain and scrub it in. Let this paste sit for an hour and then rinse.
Aspirin: Crush three Aspirin pills into a fine powder and mix with 2 tablespoons of warm water until a pasty mixture is formed. Apply this mixture to the stain, and let sit for an hour.
Lemon juice: Sprinkle some salt, and squeeze lemon juice at the spot until it soaks the stain. Rub it in until the stain fades and then wash.
