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

Leroy, the service tech, was very professional explaining the process of the cleaning. We were very happy with his service. JM. - Haysville, KS - 12/07/2023

Connor did a thorough job and was very conscientious. He left the pillows from the couch in disarray, without giving us any instruction on how they should dry. He seemed very hurried to get to his next job. Overall, the couch looks terrific, and we would use your service again. When Connor got here, we were informed that he couldn't clean our chair, since the fabric was partially linen. No one in our initial setup call asked what kinds of fabric were on our furniture. I'd like to suggest that you add this to your setup call so that you can set the proper expectations. I do NOT fault Connor on this. He did a good job explaining why.
