Clean various types of stains on clothes quickly and efficiently
Many home remedies that we normally use in the household are effective for removing common stains from clothes and linen items.
- Grass stains — wash the way you normally do. Then soak the garment in water to which you have added dish detergent (2 tablespoons of liquid detergent in 1 liter of water). Apply several times if the stain is more permanent.
- Sweat stains on woolen clothes – older traces of sweat will be cleaned only by a dry cleaner. Minor traces of sweat are easily removed if you wash a woolen garment by hand in soapy water. Then wash the woolen item with water to which you have added 2 tablespoons of ammonia (2 tablespoons of ammonia in 1 liter of water).
- Stains from shoe polish – such stains should be washed off with turpentine. Then wash the garment in a mixture of ammonia and soap spirit. Or, coat these stains with butter (or glycerin) and leave overnight then rinse as usual.
- Red stains (from raspberries, strawberries, cherries) – soak the garment in cold water with liquid dish detergent to which you have added a few drops of glycerin. Rinse with water mixed with white (colorless) vinegar.
