- Page 1


Stains happen everyday and all stains come out differently. Some are okay to just throw in the washer, and when we put others in the wash, it will make the stain permanent. Here's a list of ways to get every common stain out with products you have in your cupboard.

1. Red Wine

If the stain is on a carpet, it's best to dab the stain to remove any wine that hasn't been absorbed yet. You can use paper towels or a clean cloth. In a small bowl, pour two cups of warm water. Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar and one tablespoon of dish washing liquid.

Do the same with clothing and wash it immediately after.

2. Chocolate

Gently wipe as much of the excess chocolate as you can, making sure not to to push the stain deeper into the fibers. Next, remove as much chocolate as you can using cold running water from the back of the stain. Soak in a solution of detergent and water for at least 30 minutes before washing as usual.

3. Gum

There are a few ways you can remove gum from clothing.

Lemon juice: This method is extremely cheap, and causes no damage to fabric. All you have to do is soak the garment in lemon juice and scrape the gum off with a hard edge. It will come off with this method but wash the clothing soon after doing this process.

Hairspray: Apply the hairspray directly onto the chewing gum and it will harden. Then just scrape the chewing gum off.

Vinegar: Soak the garment in hot vinegar, then brush or scrape the gum off gently with a blunt tool to avoid damaging the fabric.

Mayonnaise: Pour this onto the chewing gum and rub it in slowly. The gum should then peel off smoothly.

Now for the most frustrating stain ever...
