What Do You Use For Stains?

by Grace Brooke

on top of dryer or shelf, use wicker tray, glass candy jar for powder laundry detergent, aquare candle holder with small wood sppon for baking powder, plain glass vinegar bottle, glass jar with one flower - all for laundry stain removers!

WOW!!!  I absolutely LOVED reading all of your fabulous responses on my Facebook page about what you use for certain stains!  Thank you so much for taking the time to participate.  It is so hard to know exactly what works for what stains until you try it or hear about it.  Otherwise, how do you know what to use to get the stain out?  Also, when’s the right time to apply the stain remover?  Some people believe that once you have washed and dried a garment that is stained and the stain hasn’t disappeared, then it’s a goner.  Well let’s take a look at what everyone had to say about this hot topic of stain removers.

The world would be a much better place without stains.  I do have to say that I loved Dayna Harvey’s stain removing tip of , “I just buy new clothes.”
