LaundroXpress is changing the way we look at the chore and drudgery of doing laundry. Having clean clothes can be a very important, yet overlooked way to present oneself, clean clothes can mean the difference between getting a job or not, meeting a significant other, and just maintaining a healthy clean lifestyle. Here at LaundroXpress we strive to make the idea of having to do laundry as easy and painless as possible.

How to Get a Wine Stain Out of Clothes

Wine can be one of the most stubborn stains to remove from clothing; the trick is all in the amount of time between when the stain was made and the cleaning (the sooner the better). There are a few different methods for removing this type of stain from clothing, the first and most used method is to combine equal parts hydrogen peroxide (stain-lifting power) with soap. Simply use a spray bottle to mix both ingredients together, spray a generous amount over the stained area and allow to sit. Using a dry towel gently blot the stained area the stain should lift without too much issue, just make sure not to wipe as the stain may be wiped to another area.

How to Get Grass Stains Out of Clothes

Grass can be another pesky stain which can be difficult to remove, the trick with this stain is to reduce the stain before putting it through the laundry. With grass the best way to remove the stain is, before putting it in the washing machine, dab the area with rubbing alcohol, be sure to mix the alcohol with equal parts water so as to not have the colors bleed through. Once you have lifted most of the heavy part of the stain, it is safe to throw it in the washing machine to completely remove the entire stain.

 

Getting Common Stains Out of Clothing

Like with most things, prevention is always the best way to ensure that you don’t have a problem with stains in the first place. Attempting to keep your clothes stain free can be difficult but once the stain is made the best way to begin to remove it is to soak the clothing. You do not want to rub on the stain or simply just throw it in the washing machine because many times that will make the stain more permanent. By putting laundry soap directly on the stain and then soaking the clothing in hot water for about 30 minutes, you will actually help the detergent lift most of the stain from the clothing. This ensures that once thrown into the laundry machine the rest of the stain will be able to be lifted from the clothing without leaving any signs of the stain ever being there.

        I use Tide liquid color safe. It works well, and if there’s a spot or stain, I pour a bit of the drntegeet directly on the stain. Sometimes for some stains a bit of spray for stains is required, but not often.Spray n’ Wash is a good spray for stains that won’t come out in regular washing. And be sure to wash blood stains in COLD water hot water sets blood stains.P.S. Your water supply will have a great influence on how clean your laundry gets. We currently have a water supply with very little mineral content, so getting clothes clean isn’t a big challenge. However, I have had hard water and I have had well water that was not only hard, it had iron and iron bacteria in large quantity. With hard water, you may need to *rinse* better I used vinegar with every washload to get all the hardness minerals out. With the iron water, though, nothing would work except using a micromet feeder to keep the iron in suspension and a chemical water softener to get everything out. Until we did that, we had orange clothing.

          If you are on a tight budget, try a raslee shop in your area. They sell gently used, stain-free clothing, and you can even bring in your old clothes for store credit or even cash. You can also try eBay, where you can buy “lots” of clothes that’s where people sell multiple items in one auction. Generally, the clothes sold on eBay are in great used condition and contain no stains, etc. If you are unsure of how to use eBay, just go to their home page and type in “12 month girl clothes” and see what comes up. If you are looking to make extra money, you can also sell your old baby clothes on eBay. You probably won’t get exactly what you paid for them brand new, but every little penny counts at that age! Good luck!!References : Was this answer helpful?
