17 Tough Stains And How To Remove ThemHow to Remove Stains

13. Crayon

Kids will be kids, and at one stage or another, they will get crayon on their clothing. To remove the stain, grab an old toothbrush and ‘brush’ the crayon stain well – it will break up the stain. Soak in undiluted vinegar for 30 minutes or so, and wash as normal.

14. Coffee or Tea

Lightly rub beer into the material then wash as normal. You might need to repeat a few times. This works well for carpet stains too.

15. Sudocreme

Add a little washing up liquid to the stain, lather it up slightly and wash as normal, it will come right out!

16. Sauce

To remove a fresh sauce stain (tomato, BBQ, chilli etc) from clothing, simply apply a small amount of dishwashing liquid to the stain, rub it in gently with your fingers, then rinse in cold water. Repeat this until the stain is gone then wash as normal. If the stain has been there longer and is more “set” in, try gently rubbing a small amount of white vinegar or lemon juice into the stain (be careful if the fabric is coloured as this may cause a bleaching effect) then wash and hang out in the sun. Repeat this process until the stain is gone.

17. Poo

To remove yucky poo stains from undies and clothing, just rinse them in warm water (and scrape off any excess poo) then pour a small amount of dishwashing liquid on the stain. Gently rub this in and then pop it in a normal machine wash. You can add a cup of white vinegar into the wash as well if you wish. Then hang it out to dry under the sun for a few hours.
