Remove Stains from Clothes
If your kids are anything like my son you are probably always looking for a way to remove stains from clothes. He is always outside playing in the mud or riding his dirt bike getting grease on his jeans. He has a lot of fun but I sure don’t when it comes to removing stains. Here are some tips on how to remove stains from clothes. They are quick and easy!
How to Treat any Stain:
- Treat the stain immediately or as quickly as you can.
- Don’t rub it in and make it worse, blot instead.
- Make sure you remove the stain inward so you don’t make it bigger.
- Don’t let it dry if you can help it. I know, this is so hard!
Mustard – Use Hand Sanitizer. Blot the stain.
Ketchup – Use lemon juice and the lemon rhine to blot.
Corn on the Cob (oily stain)- Get the oil out with baby powder and shaving cream. Let it sit and it lifts the oil out.
Iced Tea – Make a paste by using baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Let it set for 30 minutes and blot.
Wine – Mix toothpaste and hydrogen peroxide. Brush the stain with an old toothbrush.
Sofa Cushions – Fels Naptha Soap. What? Who has that? Get some. Blot with a wet cloth. Rub the bar of soap over the stain. Lifts the stain.
I have found that my husband often takes his jeans off at night and won’t tell me about the huge grease stain on them. It frustrates me so much! I know he isn’t thinking about that but I try to get to them as quickly as possible. I have found that using the hand soap Goop is great for getting out grease stains. You just rub it in to the stain and let it set for several hours. I will then add some Oxi Clean to my laundry load and wash the jeans with the Goop still on them. This usually takes out the grease if it hasn’t been on too long.
