There is nothing worse than just getting a fresh shirt out of the laundry and then spilling something on yourself. The same feeling applies to your nice clean carpets. The good news is that instead of running to the dry cleaners or tossing your piece of clothing in the trash, there痴 a few different household cleaners that actually remove stains quite well. You値l have your clothes back to a like-new condition in no time. Just take a look at these common stains and their simple removal solutions below for a complete stain kit.


Red Wine Stains


A glass of red wine can be highly enjoyable. A red wine stain is not so great. To get out a red wine stain you値l need the following:


  • Vinegar
  • Eyedropper
  • Salt


First, you should cover the stain with salt. Then, pour boiling hot water over the stain. Use vinegar in an eyedropper to apply to any of the remaining stain on the clothing or carpet. Let sit. Then, launder or wash the affected material.          


Coffee Or Tea Stains


To remove coffee and tea stains, you値l need:


  • Stain remover or bleach
  • Cold water


Getting out a coffee stain is actually a bit simpler than you may have thought. First, you should treat the stain with a stain remover stick or bleach. Be careful with these items on certain materials. You値l want to check for colorfastness to make sure that you don稚 completely ruin any material using these chemicals. Once you treat the stain, leave the item to soak with cold water for at least 30 minutes. Then, pre-treat the stain again if it still remains before you launder it. Your carpet should be thoroughly washed out as well. You should avoid using bleach on carpets to avoid further staining in case it is a sensitive material.    


Grease Stains


To remove grease stains, you値l need just a couple of simple items:


  • Dish soap
  • Hot water


Treat the grease stain with some dish soap, and let it sit for a few minutes. You値l then want to launder the item in hot water in order to finish getting the stain out. 


Juice Stains


To treat juice stains, you値l need:


  • Vinegar
  • Cold water


Let the stain soak in cold water. Then, apply vinegar to the stain. Let the vinegar sit and work its way through the stain, making magic happen. Then, launder the items that have been stained. They should come back like new! 


Chocolate Stains


Getting out a chocolate stain is also fairly simple. First, you should scrape any remaining chocolate off of the item that has been stained. Next, apply some stain remover to the affected area. Finally, just wash and rinse the item or affected area and let dry.


Stain removal isn稚 too much of a headache when you have these common items around the house!
