Why buy expensive special-purpose stain products when you already have solutions at hand. Baking soda reduces odors, boosts laundry detergent cleaning and naturally softens fabrics. Distilled white vinegar’s low level of acetic acid removes yellow underarm stains, brightens laundry, removes mildew stains and even cleans the inside of your washing machine. Hydrogen peroxide is milder than chlorine bleach and removes stains from curry and red wine. Lemon juice bleaches too. You can use table salt to absorb spilled red wine or scrub away rust stains. Cornstarch or baby powder can absorb grease and oil. When you need serious, professional stain removal, bring your accident to us before you try home remedies.Read More

Removing red wine stains from garments, table linens or upholstery can be tricky. Red is one of the most difficult colors to remove and the sugars in red wine only add to the problem. Take action as soon as possible by blotting the stain with a clean white cloth. Avoid rubbing, it only weakens the stained fabric and may force the wine even deeper into the weave. Cover the stain with table salt. The French use this trick and it works, absorbing the wine and usually leaving just a pink residue after about 10 minutes. Now rinse with cool water and blot dry. If there’s still a stain, try blotting with half white distilled vinegar/half water. Then rinse and launder. If the item is not washable, bring it to us right away and let our stain removal experts use their expertise. Read More
