5 Quick Laundry Stain Hacks

Laundry Hacks – 5 Common Stains and How to Remove Them

When life gets busy, it gets messy. To help you overcome the spots and spills, here are five quick laundry hacks that use common household items.

All you’ll need for these are:

  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Dish Soap
  • Baking Soda
  • Vacuum
  • Clean towel/paper towel
  • Old Toothbrush
  • Rubber Gloves

Quick Note! Hydrogen peroxide and baking soda can damage dyes in clothing. Always test these products on an inconspicuous spot before general use.

Foundation Stains

Get foundation on your shirt? Here’s a quick fix.

  1. Slide a towel inside the item and put it behind the stain (to keep it from spreading)
  2. Apply baking soda to the spot, wet the old toothbrush, and scrub it into the stain. Scrub towards the center of the spot to prevent it from spreading
  3. Shake the baking soda loose and launder the item

Sweat Stains

Well, everyone sweats and no one likes sweat stains. Here’s how to make them disappear.

  1. Mix together a generous sprinkle of the baking soda with a tablespoon of dish soap and two tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
  2. Use an old toothbrush to scrub the mixture into the area
  3. Let sit for an hour, then wash

Old Laundry Stains

When your favorite shirt has been through years of wear, use this simple tip to remove old stains.

  1. Make a mixture of dish soap and hydrogen peroxide and rub into the stain
  2. Let sit for 20 minutes and then put it through the washing machine

Grease Stains

Whether it’s from the grill or a greasy bag of chips, use this trick to get grease stains out.

  1. Simply rub the grease stain with some dish soap
  2. Let sit for a minute or two, then toss it into the washing machine as usual

Grass Stains

When you have kids, grass stains are inevitable. Follow these steps to make their clothes look like new again!

  1. Rinse the grass stain in warm water
  2. Saturate the area in hydrogen peroxide and let sit for 30 minutes
  3. After letting it sit, rub the stain gently to ensure the hydrogen peroxide covers the entire stain and throw in washing machine

When I spoke to the carpet cleaning guy I asked if it was even worth cleaning or Would I have to replace the carpet. He then responded by saying that he believed that he could restore the carpets fully. He showed the picture to his boss and he even said the carpet will be restored looking like new and that wasn’t the case. After being charged $495 for the services, I was told I would have to replace the carpet. I then spoke to the boss to see if I could get a refund for the failed services and he started trying to bargain on the price and ended up only refunding me $275. I believe I have been taken advantage of and lost $225 on a carpet that has to be replaced. I have pictures of the job if you would like to see. RP. - Oceanside, CA - 12/06/2019
