Stains Away

The best way to remove stains from clothes is to treat the stain with stain remover or a bit of liquid heavy-duty laundry detergent, working it into the fibers with a soft-bristled brush. Set aside for 15 minutes and then wash as usual in cool water

Distilled white vinegar is one of the best stain removers we have been given from nature. Found in invariably every household, it is mildly acidic, so acetic vinegar removes the tough spots and blotches without ruining the fabric of your clothes

Also, consider using Talcum powder, baby powder, kitchen cornstarch, or plain white chalk, they are wonderful natural treatments for helping to absorb oily stains. If you catch the oil or grease drip on fabric promptly, they can even remove it


Another suggestion, simply sprinkle the oily stain liberally with baby powder, talcum powder, or cornstarch; you can also rub the area with white chalk. Allow it to sit on the stain for at least 10 minutes to absorb the oil; then simply brush away. Later, wash or dry clean the garment following the care label directions.

A recent Consumer Reports’ tests results show you can potentially nix stain removers from your laundry room if you are using the right detergent. In the meantime, try different stain removal brands, Oxy Clean MaxForce worked well for us.

As with any product, follow the directions.
