| Oil and Grease : Sprinkle some cornstarch or baking soda on the stain, then place the garment, stain side down, on a large rag on top of an ironing board. Iron with a hot iron on the wrong side of the stain --most oil and grease stains will come right out. (This trick works only for oil and grease, which need heat to dissolve.) |
| Ink Stain : Apply toothpaste on both sides of an ink-stain on cloth. Wash after dry. |
| Blood Stains : Blood stains in clothing need to be removed as soon as possible. Use cold water and wash out the stain. Hot water will set the blood and it will be difficult or impossible to get out. |
"Hydrogen peroxide is also the absolute best for removing blood stains & do no damage to any fabric. The fresher the easier of course, but even dried blood comes out with a little effort.
| Rust : Dip in a solution of 1 part lemon juice and 1 part water for at least 30 minutes. |
