For many of us, laundering tops the list of household jobs we prefer not to do. In fact, it is one of the jobs in which we will gladly hire someone to help us. Especially with young children’s clothing.
HOW TO TREAT DIFFERENT TYPES OF STAINS
Ink or paint stain: Soak the garment in alcohol for 30 minutes or spray hair spray on it and wash it.
Tea or coffee stains: Immediately pour boiling water over the morning until it disappears. If the stain is already fixed, scrub with a borax gum and rinse.
Grease stains: Scrub the stain with liquid dish soap or treat with hydrogen peroxide and plenty of water.
Mud stain: Let it dry and brush as much as you can, then scrub with borax and plenty of water.
Tomato stains: Apply white vinegar directly to the stain and wash immediately.
Deodorant stains: Dip the stain directly into a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water for 30 minutes, then add 1 more cup of hydrogen peroxide. For really tough yellow spots, create a paste with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and rub over the spot. Let the solution work for 5 minutes and then wash off.
Grease and oil stains: Sprinkle the stain with baking soda and brush. After this, soak the garment in undiluted white vinegar for 15 minutes. Finally rinse the garment with liquid dish soap and then finish washing with water.
