3 Tips To Remove Stains
Sometimes, you get a stain on one of your favorite garments at the worse time possible that you have to remove in a timely manner. But, you either don’t know how to or you don’t have the right products to do so. Either you or the people you’re with don’t have stain remover handy. Or, you’re at home and you don’t have any yourself. Let’s take a look at a few tips and tricks to keep in mind when it comes to quickly removing stains.
1) Order a Club Soda To Remove Stains
If you’re out to the town one day, believe it or not, you can use club soda to treat the stain in the moment until you can take care of it with more serious means and products. You can get club soda at any grocery store or at a restaurant. It does wonders for treating the stain before you get the garment into a washing machine. Furthermore, at home, if you find yourself short of strong stain-treating stuff, you can mix your own club soda with lemon juice and cream of tartar.
There’s something about the carbonation of the club soda that works really well to cut through stubborn dirt on the garment. Also, to remove stains from spilled drinks or dog accidents, pour club soda over the stain and scrub firmly. Next, rinse with clean water and blot the stained area with a clean cloth. Repeat this as necessary.
