5 Hacks to Clean Stains When You Are On-the-Go
Ever have those days when you need to look your best for a special occasion and get a big and obvious stain on your clothes? Even when you try to be extra careful on those days, fate and nature would naturally take its course and somehow go against you. Here are some handy tips to keep in mind for you to be ready for whatever clumsy stain that might come along.
- White Bread for Lipstick Stains
On special occasions, we strive to look our best. Some of us even wants to wear bold and rich colors on our lips. Unfortunately, those lipsticks could get on your clothes. But don't worry because one way to remedy the situation is by using a piece of white bread! First remove the crust, then roll the bread into a ball and use it to dab on the lipstick stain. This should lift the stain from the garment, making it easier to clean. (via huffingtonpost.com)
- Chalk or Baby Powder for Grease Stains
We love fried and greasy food but when it goes to our things, it's a definite no-no. To remove those greasy finger marks on your things, clothes, and surroundings, use a white chalk or baby powder and cover the stain with it. After a few minutes, wipe the powder or chalk with a damp cloth and your greasey worries are gone! (via cleanmyspace.com)
- Salt for Red Wine Stains
At parties—especially adulting parties, wine will always be present and it's the hardest stain to remove. Salt is an actual quick fix as you can just sprinkle some on the stain, remove for five minutes, repeat, and rinse with cold water while getting the stain out. (via elle.com)
- Egg Yolk for Coffee Stains
This is surely a useful tip for all those days you spill coffee on yourself. Mix an egg yolk with a few drops of alcohol with warm water, then apply it to the stain with a sponge. Wait for a couple of minutes, then rinse and you're done! (via elle.com)
- Use Hairspray or Hand Sanitizer for Pen Stains
What a hairspray and a hand sanitazer have in common is that they both contain alcohol, which acts as a powerful solvent. Let the product soak into the stain for at least 10 minutes then wash and rinse it. You're clothes will be good as new. (via onegoodthingbyjillee.com)
