I hate stains. On clothes, furniture.. I think most people do and I can get really frustrated just trying to remove them. I wrote a post a week ago that I was on the verge of tearing my hair out because of the stains I found on my bro's clothes.

That spurred me to look for ways and means to take the stress out of removing stains. This would be a series of post since after some research I learned that there are actually different ways to remove stains depending on what stained the cloth.

  • BEER STAINS

  1. Rinse the beer stain thoroughly from the back of the clothing with cold water.

  2. Use a liquid detergent mixed with cold water and pour onto the beer stain. Allow the detergent to stand on the alcohol stain for at least 5 minutes.

  3. Rinse the stained area thoroughly.

  4. If the beer stain is really set in, you can try blotting the stained area with a 1 part vinegar/2 parts water mixture. Vinegar will bleach clothing though, so you'll want to rinse this out immediately and thoroughly with warm water.

  5. Wash according to the clothing directions.
  • CHOCOLATE STAINS

  1. Remove as much chocolate as possible with a dull knife or spoon.

  2. Rinse the stain from the back thoroughly with cold water.

  3. Rub liquid detergent on the stain and allow it to stand for at least 5 minutes.

  4. Soak the stain in cold water for 10-15 minutes or until the stain becomes more loosened. Every three to five minutes, rub the stained area.

  5. Rinse thoroughly.

  6. Repeat until no more chocolate stain can be removed.

  7. If an oily stain remains, add a stain remover stick, gel, or spray. Wash normally.
  • COFFEE STAINS
  1. Rinse the coffee stain thoroughly from the back of the clothing with cold water. Try to rinse out as much of the stain as you can.

  2. Use a liquid detergent and rub gently into the coffee stain. Allow the detergent to stand on the coffee stain for at least 5 minutes. If the stain is old or dry, rub the coffee stain with detergent, and allow to soak in cold water for 30 minutes.

  3. Rinse the stained area thoroughly.

  4. If traces of the coffee stain remain, rub liquid laundry detergent into the coffee stain and soak in warm water for 10-15 minutes.

  5. If traces of the coffee stain remain, apply a stain remover stick, gel, or spray and let stand for 5 minutes.

  6. Wash according to clothing directions.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I do have a family blog at janecajuguiran.blogspot.com. You might like to read it too. Anyway, have you tried excel, the all purpose liquid detergent? I don't find in in the supermarkets but they're in our local markets. It's great for taking stains out and is very cheap too - about 60 pesos for 1 liter.
