Got Stains?

December 22, 2011

Don’t let stains get you down this holiday season!  Treat them naturally.  Here are some ways:

Red wine stains.  As soon as you notice the stain, pour club soda on the stain to dilute it.  Blot with a paper towel.  Coat the stain with table salt to absorb it and prevent it from setting.  Rinse in cold water, gently rubbing out the stain.

Salad dressing stains.  Sprinkle on baking soda or cornstarch to absorb as much oil as possible.  Launder in the hottest water that is safe for the fabric (check the care label).

Chocolate.  Scrape off as much as you can with a dull knife or spoon, and immediately treat with 3% hydrogen peroxide.  Rinse with cold water.
