More Bang for Your Buck: Home Remedies
It can be costly trying to get stubborn stains out of your clothes, but we've got some home remedies that can save you both time and money.
(WSVN) It's a fact - your cleaning bills don't have to take you to the cleaners.
So if a stain is being stubborn, don't pay the premium... instead be creative with some common household items.
Like here's something to chew on - what would you use to get bubble gum out of your clothes?
"Ice and you pick it off"
"You could use ice"
"Goo Out, anything sticky it will get it out"
"We all know ice usually works..but for those really sticky situations simply soak the garment in vinegar then rub egg white on the stain and throw in the wash."
We all know the grass is always greener on the other side, but what happens when grass stains your pants?
"I'm a bleach person"
"Kids playing out side can get messy, so to get rid of that grassy stain sponge the spot with detergent
and if that doesn't work simply pour rubbing alcohol on the spot and rinse with cool water."
And wine can be expensive. So, if it's poured on your shirt, and not in your glass....
"Wet it and pour salt on it"
"Buy a new shirt"
"So how do you get rid of a red wine stain? open a bottle of white. Sounds silly, but it works. pour the white wine on the red wine stain, then blot with white vinegar and water."
