Natural Stain Removal

The good ol’ way to stain removal.

Blood – Spit is apparently the best way to remove blood from your clothes. Next in line is one part water, one part salt. Soak.

Sweat stains – ½ teaspoon of detergent, couple of drops of vinegar and ½ cup water. Press into stain, flush with water and blot dry.

Gum – Freeze it! Yep, that’s right, stick it in the freezer and it will chip off.

Ink – Massage hairspray into it and rinse with cold water.

Make-up – Any grease-like stain can be treated with alcohol first and then a detergent to blot it away. Sard sticks are also great for this.

Red wine – Salt. Leave to soak in then wash off with water. Soda water preferably.

Coffee – Vinegar, the wonder condiment, works well here. Only ½ teaspoon to 2 cups water.

Ink – Massage hairspray into the stain and flush with water.

Chocolate – Try glycerine, available from most supermarkets and chemists, soak for 30 minutes and rinse.
