Easy and simple removal of stains from fabrics
- Grass stains on white fabric – use 20% oxygen with a few drops of ammonia. Then rinse the fabric in rainwater or boiled water. Stains from colored fabrics are easily cleaned with diluted ammonia.
- Beer stains (from cotton, linen fabrics or canvas) – they are easily cleaned with a mixture of equal parts of alcohol and water. You can easily clean a fresh beer stain with a strong solution of salt and water.
- Stains on silk or wool fabric – rub with a sponge moistened in a mixture of equal parts alcohol (not rubbing alcohol) and water. Rub the stain until the slightest trace disappears. Then iron the wet fabric over a cloth of the same color (if possible).
- Stains on white woolen fabric – dab with a cloth moistened with diluted ammonia. Wash with soap and warm water.
- Egg stains on clothes – let them dry, then rub the stain with a brush. Clean the remaining traces or the outlines of the stain with warm water.
- Stains from linseed oil (linseed varnish) – fresh stains can be cleaned with gasoline. Clean old stains with turpentine. This advice is useful for people who coat and clean certain pieces of furniture with linseed oil.
- Fly stains (on silk, cotton, linen items) – wash clothes with soap and water to which you have added a little ammonia (or spirits). The same stains are removed from the metal with a brush moistened in alcohol. Or rub the stained areas with a mixture of petroleum and cigarette ash. The mixture should be mushy.
- Traces of flies on the furniture – can be cleaned with a slurry of starch and water. Use a cotton sponge. Polish the wood with a woolen cloth after it dries.
- Stains from various insects on silk items and silk lampshades – rub with a soft cloth moistened in a mixture of warm water and vinegar.
