General stains - lemon and salt !!
(St. Petersburg, Florida U.S.A)
A elderly southern lady told me many years ago the way they removed stains from tablecloths and such were to lay the cloth in the sun. Pour lemon and salt on the spot. Let it sit all day. I tried it and it worked pretty good, but then came oxiclean. For best results,soak item in a bucket with a scoop of oxiclean over night. Rinse in your washing machine.
