4 Stain Removal Hacks to Keep Your Fabrics Clean

If you don’t make a combat plan to get rid of stains the minute you spot them, you’re way behind the game. Dealing with stains when they are fresh can help you eliminate them before they become so stubborn that they refuse to leave. Dried-out and deeply entrenched stains require a lot of effort to eliminate. Here are some home remedies and helpful tips that can help you get rid of stains more effectively:

Stain fighters

Many people make the mistake of using color-stripping chemical agents to treat stains that can be eliminated with the help of mild detergents. Keep this list of home items used to fight stains handy:

  • Ammonia
  • Bleach
  • Oxy-Clean powder
  • Vinegar
  • Dish soap
  • Table knife
  • Hair spray
  • Blotting paper
  • Hot water
  • Coldwater
  • Lemon juice
  • Laundry detergent

Oil Stains

The best way to remove a stain immediately is by blotting it with a clean cloth or paper towels. Paper towels tend to soak up the stain when it’s fresh. This makes it extremely easy to fight it off later. If the stain is too thick, you can use a sharp object and scrape it off. Launder it in warm water for optimal results.


These are some of the toughest stains to get rid of. To get the best results to soak the fabric in ice-cold water for 10-15 minutes. Rub the stains gently from both sides and leave them in the cold water for another 10-15 minutes.  In most cases, the stain will still be there. To tackle this situation, place the fabric in an oxy-clean solution for around 30 minutes and then watch it with bleach (if white fabric) for the best results.

Coffee stains

Coffee stains are one of the most common stains to get. Alcohol is the best coffee stain fighter; start with gently rubbing the stain in alcohol. After doing so, soak the item in a blend of warm water, vinegar, and dish soap, leave it there for 15 minutes, and rinse it with an oxy-clean solution for 20 minutes. You will find your fabric stain-free as if there was never any stain.


Grass stains

Grass stains are more common amongst children and athletes. These stains can be extremely stubborn. To get rid of a grass stain, soak the item in cold water mixed with the cleaning solution overnight. The next day, scrub the stain, and if it still refuses to leave, repeat the cycle till your fabric is stain-free.
