Tanya Memme's Guide to Removing Tough Stains
Why Not Use Cleansers Marketing For Stains?
All of my solutions work instantly. Stain removers usually take longer. They need to sit and soak or go through a wash cycle. I’ve used so many others that don’t really work, use harsh chemicals, and can even harm the fabric. Mine are tried and true with no harsh chemicals that work effectively and immediately.
How To Remove Ink Stains:
Use hairspray or hand sanitizer. It’s the rubbing alcohol that does the trick. Spray or moisten a white cloth with either. Then blot the stain and it vanishes instantly. You can use pure rubbing alcohol for really tough stains, but spot test the material first. Pure rubbing alcohol may be too harsh for some fabrics.
How To Remove Wine Stains:
Blot the stain with a white cloth or paper towel. Pour water on the stain to dilute it and blot until most is picket up on the cloth. Then blot the stain with a cloth moistened in milk. This takes care of about 90% of the color. Then use something called a Bissell SpotBot. Fill the container with ½ cup of peroxide and a dollop of dish soap. Run one full cycle and the spot will be gone!
How To Remove Grass Stains:
Fill a spray bottle with ½ cup of peroxide and a dollop of dish soap. Blot the grass stain with the mixture of dish soap and peroxide, and then use a glass washboard to take out the remaining stain.
