Unusual Stain Removers- Part 2
- Rubbing Alcohol- Removes ink and deodorant stains
This antiseptic wonder can remove several types of stains provided that they are fresh. Remove ink and deodorant stains with rubbing alcohol simply by applying it directly onto the stain and dab (the ink) or wipe (deodorant mark) away before washing as normal.
- Coca Cola – Removes blood and oil stains
Blood and grease stains are both tough ones to get rid off, so you’ve got to treat them as soon as you can. Believe it or not, cola will help take that stain right out. Soak garment in cola for a good 15-30 mins or so depending on how bad the stain is, before washing as normal. Don’t worry about a cola stain, as it will come right off once you put it straight into the wash after pre-soaking.
- Shampoo- Cleans collared shirts & great for hand washing
A dirty collar is something that a little shampoo can fix. Shampoo works to break down body oils in your hair and will do the same for fabrics too. Just rub a bit of cheap shampoo on the collar and watch it remove the dirt. You can also use shampoo as an alternative soap to hand washing clothes.
- Shaving Cream- Removes food and grease stains
To get rid of stubborn food and grease stains, add a bit of shaving cream on the stain and continuously dab it lightly for a few minutes and let it sit for about 30 mins. Then, blot the shaving cream away and wash as usual.
