How To Remove Stains On Clothes

By Simon Wong

Babies and children always get stains on their clothes. You wish to keep them happy and so, you will not blame them for the stains. On the other hand, the stains are really big troubles as they are so difficult to clean. Very often, you cannot remove all the stain with a machine wash. For some of the fabrics, you may use bleach to remove the stains. For delicate ones, you probably don’t. Also, bleach is no good for your babies and children, so you need other better ways to remove the food and beverage stains.

Tea stains on clothes are very common as we all like different kinds of tea. As tea is brown or dark brown in color, when it gets on clothes, it is really noticeable. If you are not able to remove the tea stain, I am not sure if you wish to wear those clothes again. Washing your clothes with hot water is the best and easiest way to remove the stain right after a tea spill. If you miss the right timing, you need other procedures. Mix water and salt into a highly concentrated salt solution. Soak you clothes for a while and then wash it.

Another common stain is coffee stain. Similar to tea stain, coffee stain can be removed with hot water right after the spill. Otherwise, you may apply a mixture of glycerin and egg yolk onto the stain. When it is dry, wash it with water. If the coffee is on a white shirt, you can wipe the stain with soda. As soda is slightly alkaline, you will find the stain disappears after a while.

Both adults and children love chewing gums. But, children easily get chewing gums stuck on their clothes. Though children’s’ clothes may not be expensive, you certainly do not wish to throw them away. What you need to do is to remove the chewing gum with a little knife from the clothes first. Then apply some egg white onto chewing gum stain to make it loose. Brush away the stain with a toothbrush. Finally wash the clothes with soapy water and rinse with water.

Children love all different kinds of juice and they easily get juice stains on their clothes. Some of the juice stains like grape juice and cherry juice are more difficult to clean. I have two cleaning suggestions for you. First, sprinkle some table salt onto the juice stain. Then add a little bit water to dissolve the salt. Wash the clothes with soapy water after 15 minutes. Other than salt, you can also try vinegar and lemon juice. Add a few drops of white vinegar or lemon juice onto the stain. Wait for 15 minutes and then rinse with water.

Actually, you can find a lot of other methods for removing stains. Quite a lot of these methods involve different kinds of chemicals. These chemicals are harmful to your and your children’s skin. Therefore, whenever it is possible, you should avoid them and switch to natural cleaners like vinegar, lemon juice, salt, etc.
