Natural Stain Removal
How many parents have put there kid in some new clothes, only to see them spill something on it! You could get the stain out if you treat it straight away but what about if you can’t treat the stain immediately? There are however natural ways to get rid of stains.
These same natural techniques can be used to remove stains from carpets too.
First always be ready to give the product you use time to work. Don’t think a product is useless if it doesn’t start acting immediately. Give it 15-30 minutes to get to work once you’ve put it on a stain before you try to take it off.
When a stain happens act on it quickly. First remove as much as possible by dabbing the fabric with a damp cloth. Don’t rub the stain but rather just blot it – the stops the stain getting ground into the clothing.
Remove as much as you can before you use heat on the stain. Using heat prematurely will set the stain in the fabric and make it virtually impossible to move.
If you’re away from home and your kid drops something down your front – first hurry to the bathroom and clean the food off but don’t rub. Dab some soap on it and no matter how tempted you are to rub it, resist that temptation. Let the soap set in and do is job. When you’re home wash it normally.
If you spill some red food stain or red wine on your clothing then remove the item of clothing straight away. Remember don’t rub it! Again blot the stain with cold water.
Once you get home you can treat it properly by mixing equal amounts of cold water and hydrogen peroxide together. Soak the item for thirty minutes. You may have to do this a few times to completely remove the stain.
To make your whites brighter without using bleach just take add half a cup of hydrogen peroxide to each cup of detergent you use. At the beginning of the wash when the washer has filled with water turn it off for thirty minutes and just let the clothes soak. After thirty minutes run the washer as usual. You can add one-quarter of a cup of baking soda to the final rinse if you want that extra bit of freshness.
Stain can happen at any time to anybody. There is no need for them to spoil the day. Get rid of the source of the stain and dab it with soap and cold water. Then when you get home you can deal with it properly. If you drop a lot of things – then maybe think amount bringing a extra set of clothes around with you !
