Make it Yourself: Easy and Safe Stain Removal

Coffee, Tea and Wine

Pour boiling water over the fabric in the sink.  I actually took my sisters yellow blouse that had a red wine stain and boiled it in the pot!  Whala! It was gone in about 30 minutes!

Grease

Mix granulated sugar and water to create a paste.  Rub it into the stain and let it set before washing.  Dry in the sun.

Scorch Marks

If its not too bad and brown, dip in Borax and water and dry in the sun

Spilled Wax

First, harden using ice cubes.  Scrape off excess with a dull table knife.

For washable fabric, stretch over a bowl and pour boiling water through the stain.

For non-washables, place between several layers of clean white cotton or muslin and press with a warm iron
