7 Common Stains And How To Remove Them

Laundry can be a time consuming on its own, let alone when you throw in stains like chocolate or grass marks. If the stains aren’t removed prior to washing, you can seriously damage clothing or even worse ruin clothing for good. Luckily, there are easy ways to deal with the most common stains and you’ll get to save your favorite t-shirt from being tossed. Check out how to remove the 7 most common stains and save your clothing before it’s too late!

  1. Ink: To remove ink from an article of clothing, apply hairspray to the stain and rub gently. Then run under cold water and throw it in with your laundry.
  2. Coffee: Coffee stains happen to the best of us.  Create a mixture of 2 cups of cold water to a half teaspoon of vinegar, gently apply mixture with a sponge or cloth. Wash as normal.
  3. Sweat:  A sweat stained shirt isn’t destined for the garbage, it can be saved! Use a combo of baking soda and water on the affected areas and throw in the laundry.
  4. Red Wine: Did you know that red wine can be treated with white wine? All you have to do is treat the stain with a little white wine and then apply a pinch or two of salt. Rinse the item and rub right away before placing item in the wash.
  5. Gum: Use an ice cube to freeze the gum right off the item of clothing. The gum should peel right off and clothing will be ready for the laundry. Note: Make sure to remove all gum before putting in the washing machine.
  6. Blood: When blood ends up on an article of clothing make sure to rinse it with cold water right away, soaking if it’s a stubborn stain.After an hour or so pre treat with laundry detergent and wash as normal.
  7. Grass: To remove pesky grass stains, soak in hot water to remove loose dirt. Then, apply 1 tablespoon of dish soap and 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and let it soak for at least 10 minutes.  Give it a good scrub to remove the stain, repeat if stain is still visible and then wash as normal.
