How to remove one of the most stubborn stains in the laundry world

Updated on January 27, 2015

Sometimes you may look at your wardrobe and wonder what came of some of your best clothes, hanging at a corner in your wardrobe, looking rejected. Stains are the ghosts that make these clothes to look freaky having them on, as you go to parties, cocktails, weddings, graduations, dates, name them.

Here is a list of quick ways of removing these stains from your clothes forever (believe me, the exorcism will work).

  1. 1. Ink - Maybe your writing inspiration has shot through the ceiling, making you to spill some ink on your clothes, or your child plays scientist as he or she wears white clothes. Don't fret about that. First, put your stained fabric on top of a clean, dry cloth. Secondly, dab rubbing alcohol onto the ink stain. Thirdly, you begin blotting with a clean cloth. Go on with the exercise, until no slight sign of ink remains. Rinse the fabric thoroughly. Fourthly, apply normal liquid detergent on the inky area for 3-5 minutes, then finally you wash with hot water (the kind of hot depends on the kind of fabric’s material).
  2. 2. Blood – I don’t want anyone to confuse you for a serial killer or vampire if you go out in public with red spots around your clothes. To avoid this, first pour concentrated white vinegar directly on the blood stains on the fabric (have no mercy). Let it soak in the solution for 5 -10 minutes. Secondly, blot well with a cloth or towel. If you see the red nightmare once again, keep on blotting. If you win the fight, you wash the fabric with ordinary detergent.
  3. 3. Rust – These stains can make you look like a robot that has been abandoned in the rain to decay. The first step to rid this metallic problem is by sprinkling salt on the affected area. Secondly, you pour natural lemon juice on the salted area, and put out in the sun to dry. Go on with the normal washing, and the stain will fade away like a vampire in sunlight!
  4. 4. Oil – Going to the dry cleaner with such a stain, is like going to a doctor to be treated for fear of heights. If your clothes only have vegetable oil, olive oil, and coconut oil, don’t be alarmed. The first thing you do is to sprinkle baking soda on the fabric. If you don’t have it, use cornmeal. Let the fabric bond with the baking soda for 60 minutes.
