1)    AVOID SCRUBBING AT ALL COSTS

Scrubbing the stain will only worsen it. Always remember to blot and not rub the stain’s residue. Just use a clean cloth and lightly press on the stain to blot.

After blotting the wine residue, cover the area with table salt and let it stay there for five to 10 minutes. The salt will absorb the stain as it dries.

3)    BABY POWDER ON GREASE STAINS

Like the process with the table salt, apply the powder all over the affected area and wait for 10 minutes.

4)    SCRAPING METHOD ON LARGE STAINS

For large stains like mustard on clothes, don’t blot right away. Instead, scrape the excess first using a spoon or a knife before applying the appropriate technique depending on the stain.

5)    LEMON JUICE ON BRIGHTENING CLOTHES

Lemon juice is basically an all-natural whitening and bleaching agent. It works best on white clothing. Simply squeeze the liquid over the stain and let it dry.

6)    RUBBING ALCOHOL ON INK STAINS

An effective way to remove ink stains is by using rubbing alcohol. Just use a clean cloth and dip it into rubbing alcohol then go ahead and blot the stain away.

7)    CLUB SODA ON WINE STAINS

Another technique to remove wine stains is using club soda. It is more acidic than water and is more effective.

8)    WHITE VINEGAR ON SWEAT STAINS
