Isn’t it really annoying when you get a stain on your nice clothes isn’t it? It can be lipstick, blood or some other stubborn stain. Of course if this happens on white or very light clothes then it is really frustrating. So here we will share with you how you can get stains out of your clothes using a number of different methods.
Stain removers can be very effective in removing stains from your clothes. But first you need to know what the cause of the stain was. You need to determine if the stain is an oily one or non-oily so that the first step you take is the correct one.
If your clothes have an oily stain then do not use cold water to try and rinse it out. The reason is that water and oil do not mix and you can end up making the situation worse. Use a dry paper towel to dab the stain first. Typical oil stains include:
If the stain is non-oily then you can use cold water to rinse first. Be sure to remove any excess by dabbing this off of your clothes before rinsing. Run the water at the back of the stain to help flush it out. Some typical non-oily stains include:
Now you need to apply the stain remover. This can be in powder, spray or liquid form. Follow the instructions on the stain remover for the best results. Sometimes you will need to apply a stain remover to the stain edges while others will want you to make the application at the heart of the stain.
As homemade stain removers go, hydrogen peroxide is one of the best. You just need some hydrogen peroxide (low strength) and some normal dishwashing liquid. Add one part of the dishwashing liquid to two parts of the hydrogen peroxide into a small container.
You do not require much of this mixture to get rid of stains on your clothes. The good thing about the hydrogen peroxide solution is that it works well for both oil based and non-oil stains. It will work on most clothing fabrics including cotton but we don’t recommend it on wool or silk.
It is best to add your hydrogen peroxide mixture to a spray bottle for easy application. We recommend that you do a spot test first before applying the full amount of this homemade stain remover. The last thing that you want is for the solution to discolor your clothes. It should be a safe remedy for all colors but it is always good to check first.
Once you are happy that the solution will not discolor your clothes spray it onto the stained area directly. You can apply the solution liberally. Then you need to leave it to really soak into the stain for a few minutes at least.
There are a few natural solutions for stain removal which include:
The final step is to put your stained clothes in the washer. If you want your clothes to be the cleanest that they have ever been then forget washing at home and go to the MegaWash Laundromat in Sparks.
