Helpful Tips for the Laundry
Remove Mustard Stains from Clothing
Apply a few drops of glyercine and rub it in with your
fingers. Rinse the stain with water and launder as usual.
Presto! Comes right out.
Removing Oil Stains
Oil stain may be removed by rubbing the area with a piece
of lime dipped in salt.
To restore scuffed or pressed suede, brush over
with light sand paper
Take your leftover soap slivers and put them in a
vented plastic bag or old nylon stocking. You place
the bag or stocking with seasonal clothes before
packing them away. Not only will the scent prevent
them from moth harm but also they'll smell great
when you pull them out.
Zipper stuck or hard to zip? Try rubbing the zipper tracks with a
little bar soap or a wax candle. It will glide with ease.
When doing laundry, don't wrap towels or sheets around
the agitator. If they get tangled, they won't wash
properly and will put stress on gears of the machine.
Place them on one side of the tub instead. Spread them
around with other articles so your tub won't be off
Washing Delicate Items
Wash small delicate items of clothing by placing them
in a big plastic jar or container of warm water, mild soapy water,
gently shake. Rinse them the same way, in clear water.
Tar on Clothing
Place an absorbent piece of material on top of the stain. Apply
eucalyptus oil, mineral spirits or turpentine a from below the
stain with a cotton ball. Launder according to labels directions.
Removing Blood Stains
Keep in mind when dealing with blood stains, the sooner you
treat them, the more likely they will be removed...These
methods work on clothing or carpeting...
If the stain is fresh, soak immediately in cold water. The stain
will not set. Launder as usual...
Run an ice cube on the blood stain if the item is too big to
wash. Then, blot with a clean cloth~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
