Clothes get dirty. It’s just a part of life. However, many of us just assume that the only way to get rid of stains is by throwing our clothes in the wash. First of all, that’s time-consuming; it’s also a waste of energy, can be expensive over time, and it hurts the environment! So, rather than going through the hassle of removing stains in the wash, you could remove them using basic items you probably already have in your pantry. 

These tricks are timeless, resourceful, and eco-friendly! We’ve covered some of the most common stains below with some basic instructions. Say goodbye to those pesky stains for good!

Fresh Blood Stains 

Fresh blood on your clothes just looks bad. Luckily, you can apply white vinegar and let it soak for up to 10 minutes. Then, blot it with a paper towel. This method is very effective! 

Grease Stains

Grease stains are a lot more common. Those greasy lipids don’t like to come out easily, but you can pour cornstarch on the area and mix it with water. This creates a paste that will extract the grease from the material. 

Sweat and Yellowing Stains

Mix lemon juice and table salt, pouring them both on top of the stain. Once soaked, simply rub the area until the stain washes out. 

These are just a few of the stain removal hacks you can use! To learn about more eco-friendly stain removal tricks, check out the infographic from Tommy John below!
