The next couple of blog posts will look at what you can do to remove stains if you are not as prepared as you would like to be. These tips will contain some odd stain removal items to treat your laundry stains in a pinch.

A laundry room standby for many families is the blue dishwashing soap. This can be found in many big box stores. This soap is great for removing grease from any item. On your clothing, it can remove tough grease stains quickly. To use simply rub a small amount of the soap directly on to the stain. Rub it in well on both sides of the fabric. Let this soak for a while and then launder as usual.

Hairspray is not just for keeping your hair in place. It can be used in a pinch to remove ink stains as well. When you have an ink stain or permanent marker accident spray the stain liberally. In most cases, the stain will disappear immediately. If not rinse and spray again. Launder the garment as usual.

A really odd stain remover is artificial sweetener. Yes, those little packs of sweetener many of us carry around in our purse for adding to our tea. This trick is perfect for grease stains. If you find grease popping out while you are cooking and getting spots on your clothes grab a pack. Use the artificial sweetener to blot at the grease stain. This substance can pull the oil out of your clothes pretty quickly. The trick is to do this as fast as possible to ensure the oil is removed from the fabric. Another great reason for carrying those little packs around with you!

In all cases, we suggest checking the garment for stain removal after laundering. Never put the item or items in question into the dryer without making certain the stain is gone. This will set the stain and it will be more than likely permanent. This can cost you lots of money as you have to replace the ruined clothing. We recommend never skipping this all-important step in doing the laundry.
