Blood Stain Removal

Blood stains can be easily removed with cold water and a bit of shampoo. (note never use hot or warm water on a blood stain) If this does not work, try hydrogen peroxide.

Coffee and tea stains can be removed by pre-treating the stain with liquid laundry detergent and then washing the garment in hot water. If the stain remains, repeat, but do not dry the garment in the clothes dryer until the stain is gone. Using the dryer on a stain will set the stain and make it permanent!

Acrylic Paint Stains

Hairspray, pine cleaner or alcohol works really well at removing acrylic paint from clothing. Test a small spot first, then spray on the hairspray (or alcohol or pine cleaner) and rub gently to remove the paint stain. You may have to wash the garment twice. Soak, scrub, repeat.

Removing Berry Stains

Removing Super Glue Stains

Here is what you do to remove the glue stain. Before you try this you But before you should test this in an inconspicuous area to insure that the stain removal solution will not damage the surface in any way.

* Get some acetone nail polish remover, either scented or unscented- It does not matter.
* Wet a white paper towel or napkin thoroughly with the nail polish remover, (wet enough of an area to cover the stain) The napkin should be wet, but not dripping.
* Place the napkin directly on the stain
* Cover the wet napkin with a piece of plastic such as a baggie or plastic wrap, and then place something heavy on top of the plastic to keep the nail polish solution in contact with the glue.· I placed a wet towel (dish rag) over the plastic wrap, but a book or something similar should do just as well. The goal is to keep the nail polish remover from evaporating, so it will soften the crazy glue.

·It took about 1 1/2 hours for my glue stain to soften and come completely off- Check the progress about every 30 minutes, and reapply more nail polish remover if necessary. Before you know it, the glue stain should be gone.
