Regardless how careful you are, sooner or later you’ll get a spill on yourself, a table cloth (if you’re that fancy) or worse, on somebody else.
It’s just a matter of time.
So today I want to share my weapons against three of the most aggravating stains:
— COFFEE & TEA
— OIL, PEANUT BUTTER & BUTTER
— KETCHUP & other TOMATOEY INCARNATIONS
I bet you can’t remember how many times you’ve spilled these either!

    Four ingredients is all you need!
STEP 1: GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS
Believe or not, the fight against stains comes down to just a FEW simple ingredients:
— Dawn liquid dish soap, preferable blue classic, Fairy if you’re in Europe & Australia
— Borax
— Baking Soda (preferable) or salt
— Rubbing Alcohol – at least 77%
There are also two more weapons to try after everything else has failed. I’ll be covering these a little later.
You’ll also need:
— Cup
— Tablespoon
— Cup or Measuring cap
— Container or bucket to wash your clothing
— Tap water
So take a trip to your cleaning cabinet, or the supermarket, and get ready for the battle!

STEP 2: ONE WORD: CONTAINMENT
Before you panic and put your cloth under running water, it is key to CONTAIN the mess.
As soon as the spill happens, grab paper towels (ideally very absorbent kitchen towels) or napkins and try to get as much of the stain out. Don’t rub, just gently press and let the paper suck the mess in.
TIP: If possible – especially with a large spill – put the towels in both sides on the fabric.
With wine or other liquids, you can use baking soda or salt: both great to absorb wet stains.
TIP: You want to remove as much as possible before you wet the fabric: Water will make the stain spread!
CAUTION: BEFORE you wash your fabric, always check the LABEL FOR CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS. And don’t use hot water with delicates or color items.
Wash the item as you would after applying the treatment, according to manufacture’s instructions.
Wait, we’re not ready to wash yet!
