Grass and wine the two biggies of stain removal

Two of the hardest things to banish in the world of stain removal are wine and grass stains. There are plenty of powerful stain removal agents out there, but happens if you don’t have any to hand? Let’s think about that for a minute.

You planned your outfit so well, but you didn’t have that in mind when you ordered that red wine or tomato soup. If you spill something on your clothes while you’re out and about, don’t panic. Your night doesn’t have to be ruined as long as you have club soda around.

Used straight from the bottle, club soda is a great emergency spot cleaner and stain remover. Apply it with a clean, damp cloth.

If you’re near a laundry machine — say, a romantic dinner at home? — you can create a simple but powerful stain remover by combining lemon juice with cream of tartar. Wash it like normal, and those marks you thought would be there forever will be long gone.

And grass? Well it’s all fun and games when you’re sliding into third base at your annual family baseball game, but your smile may fade when you see the grass stain on your favorite pair of shorts. If you cringe at the thought of your kids roughhousing in the yard because of the work you’ll have to put into their clothes afterwards, worry no more. Grass stains aren’t as invincible as they seem.

Grass stains on clothes can be removed with an old toothbrush and plain white toothpaste; just make sure you use a paste variety and not a gel. Squeeze a small amount of the toothpaste onto the stain, then dip the toothbrush in clean water and use it to scrub away the stain. Repeat this process as needed to treat all of the stain(s). Rinse the area and launder the clothing as usual. Now you can steal home plate without a second thought.
