5 more ways to remove stains from your clothing

Stains are a dirty business, but they do not have to plague you. These further tips will help you to keep clean and remove any accidental spills in no time.

Bid grubby collars farewell

A grubby collar can ruin a good shirt, but there is no need to toss it in the bin if stains seem stubborn and lingering. You can use shampoo to lift the stain and all you need to do is rub it on and wait. Give it some time to soak in, then launder your shirt as usual. The grimy collar should come out completely clean.

Bye-bye blood stains

While we have all heard horror stories about what black light picks up in hotel rooms, we sometimes get blood on ourselves from shaving or a cut and the stain is glaringly obvious. Before you panic and try to wash your bloodstained clothes, remember that this makes it worse; instead, use a three per cent hydrogen peroxide solution and soak the stain before using a butter knife to loosen the blood, rinsing away any excess. You can also try using salt to get rid of blood, as this also soaks up the stain.

Lose the lipstick

Lipstick on your collar is not something any man wants – even if it is from his wife! If you get lipstick on your mens Farah shirts, you can opt to buy some more from stockists such as http://ejmenswear.com/brands/farah – and this is a great excuse to go shopping! – or you can buy a loaf of white bread, remove the crust and use the rest to remove the lipstick! Simply wad up the crustless bread into a ball and dab it on the lipstick – it should absorb it all.

Grass stains

Getting grass stains is often fun; getting rid of them, less so. Grass stains come out quite easily if you have an old toothbrush and some plain white toothpaste. Just squeeze a bit of paste straight onto the stain, then use clean water to rinse it off. The grass stain should vanish before your eyes.

Mop up spills

If you are out and about and spill something on yourself, always remember that club soda, or soda water, can help you out in a bind. Just rinse off the stain and it should wash down the drain!
