Become a Stain Removal Master


Stains are a nuisance. I have lost clothes to them, they have dictated where I move my furniture, and worst of all, my to do list gets longer because of them.

I hate them...

I hate stains.

To overcome my role of being a victim of stains, I've decided to become a...

...Stain Removal Master.

Yes, I know it's a bit dramatic.

Here are the basic lessons that I learned so far.

Lesson 1.

Read labels. Yes, those tags behind your neck guaranteed to come with every shirt or top you wear and scratch your neck. Well, they have a worthy stain removal purpose.

I never thought about it like this, but these labels can act as a stain removal guide.

When the tag says no chlorine, it's a good idea not to use chlorine on the fabric to get rid of the stain.

If a tag says wash in cold water, don't try to remove the stain with hot water and vice versa.

I think you have the idea now.

Lesson 2.

Have stain removal kits and keep them in stain prone areas. The most obvious area being the laundry room.

What you put in your stain removal kit depends on where you keep your kit and what you plan on using it on.

For instance, in an area covered in carpet, keep carpet stain removal products in the kit to help with future carpet stains.

There are many stain removal concoctions on the market. It's up to you to decide what's best for you.

It's a good idea to add home stain removal remedies to your kit. You know the usual, baking soda, vinegar, club soda, hydrogen peroxide and so on.

Lesson 3.

You need to know what stain removal products to use on what stains.

Here is a taste of some stain removal tips.

First, there is the lipstick on glassware stain. To remove, try white non-jel toothpaste to rub out the stain.

Second, is the red wine stains. Blot with cold water, followed by an application of lemon juice and salt then a wash in cold water.

That's it...

...Okay one more.

What about writing on wall papered walls? What do you got? Crayon art work?

Well, at the risk of removing a masterpiece in the disguise of crayon scratch, try using a blow dryer.

Use the blow dryer on medium heat to warm the wax. Wipe with a damp cloth and a little oil based soap.

Okay, that's it...

...Almost.

I need to leave you with a warning.

Please, please, please! Before you try any stain removal remedies here or anywhere else, TEST on spots that are not noticeable.

Before I stared using a new stain removal product I tested before I used it on anything, even though its name says "The Natural Stain Treatment".
