Let's face it. Tossing clothes in a washer with some detergent is pretty simple. It's those stains that can really cause the problems. Continue reading for some tips on stain removal. ✨⠀
💧 When tackling a stain, always start with cold water especially on stains of unknown origin. Hot water can set protein stains like milk, egg or blood, cooking the protein into the fibers. Hot water works best on oily stains like mayonnaise or butter. The hot water is especially important when removing stains from man-made fibers like polyester.⠀
👕 Your first instinct may be to grab a bar of soap or a squirt of liquid hand soap to remove a stain. But, never rub a fresh stain with bar soap. Soap can actually set many stains like berries, fruit or vegetable stains. Instead, use liquid dishwashing detergent or a bit of laundry detergent. Or, stick with plain water. Flush the stain from the back side of the fabric to push the stain out of the fibers. And, there is no need to search for club soda. Plain water works just as well and is cheaper!⠀
👚 For fresh liquid stains, blot up any excess liquid with a clean white cloth, paper towel or even a piece of white bread (great for grease stains). Remember to keep moving to a clean, dry area of the blotting cloth so as much of the stain is absorbed as possible. Avoid rubbing the stained area with a linty terry towel or a dark-colored cloth.⠀
🧺 For stain blobs, remove excess solids by gently lifting away with the edge of a dull knife, metal spatula or edge of a credit card. Never rub a blob-like mustard or salad dressing stain because that only pushes the stain deeper in the fabric fibers. With some solids, such as mud, removal may be easier after the stain has dried. Brush off the excess before the garment is washed.⠀
