Removing Your Fabric Stains at Home

Caring for clothes, your precious fabric pieces can be tiresome to clean but still, you have some good ways to get rid of the stains from your favourite dresses. Continue reading the following given tips and recommendations: 

Stains from Sauce

Did you spill some mustard or pasta sauce on your dress? If yes, these are what you have to do to get sauce stains removed right:

Using vinegar and baking soda

Even your toughest stains cannot stay with the slight acid touch from vinegar. So, all you have to do is:

   1. Take an empty water bottle and fill it with straight vinegar.

   2. Saturate the stained area of your garment fully.

   3. Sprinkle some baking soda over that stain.

   4. Now, gently rub the mixture into the cloth and respray vinegar if needed.

   5. Let this process stay up to 30 minutes or more.

   6. Then rinse the back of your stain with some cool water just for a few minutes.

   7. Again, respray the stained area using vinegar.

   8. Get a bucket or sink and fill it with about one gallon of water.

   9. Put ½ cup of vinegar into that water and two tablespoons of laundry detergent.

   10. Allow the garment (fabric) to soak overnight.

   11. And the best part of this cloth care technique is, this method works around 75% to 90% of the time on non-grease stains.

Peroxide and dishwashing soap 

Another stain removal method that you can try is using peroxide and dishwashing soap. You can get your stains rid around 70% using the following steps:

   1. Take a spray bottle and combine 1 part dish soap with 2 parts peroxide. (If you don’t have Dawn, then you can still try with any other dish soap available.)

   2. Now, you must saturate the complete area of the stain.

   3. Using gloves or a finger cover, gently rub over the stained area.

   4. Let these things sit overnight.

   5. Rinse and repeat the procedure if necessary.

Note that this process might not work for tomato ketchup stains as it dyes the actual fabric piece itself. 

Grease Stains

Removing grease stains is the most notorious part and once they have dried up, it is more difficult. However, there is a technique to remove this too using baking soda, that proves good as quite a successful stain removal at home:

Using Baking Soda

Take a spray bottle and combine 1 tablespoon of both glycerin as well as dish soap with about 1.5 cups of warm water. Then shake up this mixture well and spray the same over the stain. Ensure that you soak up the entire area of the stain. Let this sit on the dirt for around 15-20 minutes. Later on, wash it with cold water. Then, add one tablespoon of baking soda to the entire load. This will work well and remove the soaked up remaining grease. Then, just hang to dry.

Removing Yellow Stains from Clothes 

Due to fabric aging or if sweat persists, your white cloth may turn pale yellowish. Which can be challenging to remove. However, denture tablets can do magic. All you have to do is take 3 to 4 denture tablets and put them inside a bucket of water. Soak the stained fabric in it for around 7 to 8 hours and get the cloth stained removed later.

If you don’t have denture tablets, then try searching for cloth washing near me’ online to get a professional cleaner in and around your region. Because white fabric needs special care and treatment!

   1. Treat your bloodstain with a window cleaner.

   2. Then rinse it in some cold water before laundering.

   3. Make a thick paste of unseasoned meat tenderizer with water and apply it over the stain; wait for the paste to dry completely before you scrape or shake it off.

   4. Now soak the stain in saltwater or any saline solution that will be used for cleaning contact lenses.

   5. Soak the stain for several hours in some milk, before you rinse and launder the same.

   6. Now finally, rinse the stained area with some white vinegar or a club soda and go for regular cleaning.
