Stain Removal Tips for Mothers

Dealing with stains on the clothes of kids is a difficult task. Make this daunting task easy with some simple stain removal tips.

Mothers really have a very tough time dealing with stains. You may have washed your kid’s clothes just a while back, only to find fresh stains! At times, you are probably about to step out of your house for a get together when you spot stains on your child’s clothes or the carpet on the floor. Indeed such situations are very frustrating for mothers at times. But unless your kids grow, there are no escaping stain issues! This article lists a number of easy stain removal tips for super busy mothers.

How to Remove Felt Pen Stains

You will often find your child’s school uniform stained with felt pen marks. So what do you do? You can start by applying petroleum jelly at the site of the stain. Follow it up by using a pipette to smear rubbing Glycerin. Apply dry cleaning liquid and allow the garment to dry for a while. Spray on some dilute dish washing liquid on the garment and rinse well. Finally, take some bio laundry washing powder or enzyme containing detergent powder and wash the garment with it.

How to Remove Pasta Sauce Stains

Stains of pasta sauce are difficult to get rid of, unless you take action immediately. Start by applying a relatively diluted version of dish washing liquid to the item under consideration. Let the liquid soak in and then rinse the item with warm water. After this, apply a bit of white vinegar and wash the garment using an enzyme enriched detergent. Rinse well with warm water. Apply hydrogen peroxide to the garment using a pipette and again wash it using an enzyme containing detergent powder. Do not forget to rinse well!

How to Remove Feces Stains

If you are lucky enough, you will probably need to just wash the garment in order to get rid of the stains. Since prevention is always better than cure, you can consider soaking the garment in warm water with a laundry product constituted by enzymes added to it. After this, you have to wash the item in a washing machine using either the chlorine bleach (if allowed) or oxygen bleach. As per a number of experts, you should always get rid of as much fecal matter as possible by placing the garment under running water.

How to Remove Grass Stains

If your child’s shirt or pant contains grass stains, you should soak it in vinegar and then apply toothpaste at the site. Application of the vinegar helps the garment to be pre-rinsed. Allow sometime for the garment to dry and then sponge it using cold water with detergent. Let the garment become dry and then proceed with the normal washing procedure. If you are allowed to treat the garment with special enzyme stain removers or bleach, proceed without any apprehension.

How to Remove Banana Stains

If you find your child’s garments containing banana stains, you should immediately take out the excess banana, hold it under cold running water and wash it using the warmest washing conditions the fabric can withstand using laundry bleach. If you do not want to use bleach, you may want to soak the garment in hot water that contains a pre-wash enzyme stain remover for at least 30 minutes. Take out the garment and wash it with hot water.

You may also keep a track of the oily stains on your child’s pillow case. It is quite easy to remove such stains by applying shampoo to the affected area, rubbing it gently and then rinsing well. If your child’s clothes are contaminated with blood stains, you can make a salt solution for dealing with it. The salt helps disintegrate the blood proteins and helps remove the stains when you wash the garment.
