Tips for Removing those Stubborn Stains

Those pesky stains can make your trip to the Laundromat frustrating! Why won't that coffee stain just come out already... Here are some tips for how to remove those stubborn stains and shorten your trip!

INK (felt-tip) — Spray stain with hairspray, rubbing into the stain. Let dry then treat with normal stain remover. Wash in cold water.

CRAYON — Sprinkle baking soda on a damp cloth and rub gently.

MUD — Soak and rub the stain in cold water before washing in a color safe bleach. Rub with liquid detergent and water. Then wash in warm water. If the stain remains, soak an additional 30minutes and rewash.

GREACE — Apply liquid detergent to the stained area and let it sit for 5 minutes. As it soaks into the fabric it begins to break down the grease. Wash in hot water.

COFFEE — Rub liquid laundry detergent and a little cold water on the coffee stain.

GRASS — Scrub with liquid dish soap or treat with 50/50 Hydrogen Peroxide and water mix. Wash in warm/hot water.

GUM — Rub gum with an ice cube until it becomes frozen and can be broken off.

TOMATO SAUCE — Treat with white vinegar directly on the stain and wash immediately in cold water.

CHOCOLATE — Rub liquid dish soap into the stain and rinse with cold water.
