6 Stain Removal Hacks That Really, Truly Work!


There’s nothing more annoying than a pasta sauce stain on a new white shirt or stains on freshly washed bed-sheets. Stains are unavoidable but fortunately, there are many hacks for every kind of stains. Here is a list of clever hacks that work for removing stains.

1. Red Wine

We’ve all experienced that mini heart-attack when a glass of red wine drops on the carpet. When this happens the next time, dab up as much of the wine as possible, then pour some club soda on the stain. Leave it for a little bit then pour some salt on it. When they dry out, use a vacuum to get rid of the leftover residue.

2. Armpit Stains

The yellowish stains in your shirts are not sweat stains, they are deodorant stains. If you want to remove them, you need some Dawn dish soap, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and a toothbrush.

3. Blood

Blood is one of the most difficult stains to remove from your clothing, furniture, or liners. If you notice a bloodstain, use a cloth to dab the blood with cold water. Then dab some hydrogen peroxide on the stain and when the stain is absorbed, use a cloth to apply more cold water on the stain. Repeat the process if needed.

4. Yellow Pillows

Pillows can become yellow-stained over time, and that’s totally normal. To remove them, you only need some hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, laundry detergent, and booster.

5. Mattress Stains

Mattress covers don’t always protect our mattresses from getting stained. If you want to remove simple stains, spray them with household cleanser and use a cloth to dab the liquid after 5-10 minutes.

6. Pet Urine

Every now and then, our pets can mess up. To get pet pee stains out of carpets, dab as much as you can with a cloth. Pour a solution of a mixture of vinegar and water onto the stain. Use a little scour brush to work the mixture deep into the carpet. Then use another cloth to absorb the rest of the mixture as could reasonably be expected. When the zone has dried, you can also pour baking soda on the old stain, then vacuum it up following a couple of hours.
