I love to post my favorite cleaning tips for you – like how to get stains out of clothes.
It is just another way that I Make Laundry Easier in our house!

Let’s face it, stains are irritating and inevitable.

No matter how careful you are, they happen. I can tell you, just today, that I had to get stains out of THREE shirts. THREE!

-One was from green icing (making cake).
-One was from snacking on one of those little wax pumpkins (which is big for a two year olds mouth… resulting in stains on the front of her shirt).
-One was from a grass stain- on the elbow of our son’s shirt.

All three stains today came from HAVING FUN, so I can’t complain!

Ok- now down to my best tips to remove stains:

1- Use hairspray to get PEN out of clothes (thanks goes to my great grandma for teaching us that one!)

2- Pretreat your clothes, as soon as possible, with Clorox 2 Stain Remover & Color Booster. I pretreat EVERY stain, if I can!

3- To get grease out of your clothes, try using a squirt of dish soap. Just put the UNCOLORED dish soap onto the stain and let it sit about five minutes. Rinse.

4- Use baby powder for grease stains. Let it sit overnight.

5- Use shaving cream to get makeup (foundation) out of your clothes. Use it like you would use soap (wash the area with it).

Use Clorox 2 Stain Remover & Color Booster for everything else! It makes it possible to get the stains out – even the toughest, set-in stains – so every person in your family can put their best front forward. Clorox 2 Stain Remover & Color Booster combines a color protector and stain remover to keep your clothes bright and stain-free, wash after wash.If I happen to have washed the shirt or article of clothing without treating the stain, I use Clorox 2 Stain Remover & Color Booster to remove the set-in stains, even after it has been through the dryer! (Yay!) It even works on impossible stains, like soy sauce, coffee, grass, wine and the dreaded grape juice.
