Hey Momma’s….Are you ready to learn how to remove your most common stains? I know you have some stains you need to get removed fast! Who doesn’t when you have little ones running all over the house?
As a mom, it’s extremely difficult to keep your clothes clean and stain free. It seems I’m constantly handling one chore with one hand while holding my little one with the other which results in a big mess. I’m also pretty good at putting makeup on while my daughter is sitting in my lap; however, not so good at keeping the make up off of our clothes during this process. So for all of you momma’s who are right there with me and can’t seem to keep it clean, here are some tips to remove your most common stains. You will most likely have all of the items needed to battle these tricky stains already in your home.
A tip before you get started, be sure to treat and wash the stain as soon as possible. After you wash the stain, be sure to check your fabric to see if the stain has been removed before throwing it in the dryer. The heat of the dryer will set your stain so be sure the stain is removed first.
Spilled some red wine? Dab some white wine on it and then cover the stain with baking soda paste. Leave it for 2-3 hours and wash. There’s nothing a little wine can’t fix. 😉
Did you accidentally get some lipstick on your favorite shirt? Dab some dish soap on the front and back of the stain and then wash in hot water.
Did you have a chocolate snack attack? Scrape the excess chocolate off of the fabric and run under cold water. Rub dish washing detergent into the stain and soak in cold water for 15 minutes while gently rubbing at the stain every 3 minutes or so.
Did your little one tumble down and scrape his knee? Get that blood stain out with some vinegar. Run it under cold water with some soap. Dab some vinegar over the stain and then toss in the laundry.
Get that oil Stain out with some baby powder! I know all of us momma’s have this around the house. Blot any extra oil and grease up with a paper towel and then sprinkle the baby powder on the spot until its covered. Wait 5-10 minutes to let the powder soak up the oil. Brush off the powder with your finger and it should be good as new.
Ever had one of those days where you spill your coffee on yourself when driving to work? Ugh, me too many times. Dab any excess coffee up with a cloth. Mix one part dish soap and one part vinegar together. Using a dry cloth sponge the stain with the mixture until the stain is gone.
FINGER NAIL POLISH
Did you knock that bottle of nail polish over while trying to look gorgeous? Place the stained fabic face down on paper towels on blot the back with nail polish remover. Rinse with cold water and repeat until the stain is gone. Launder as usual.
Have a little one who likes rolling around in the grass? Get out those grass by applying Shout to the stain for 15 minutes. Rub in the solution with a toothbrush and launder as usual.
