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.

  1. 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)
