How To Get a Stain Out A Shirt
Posted on February 02 2017
Many people have been known to throw away brand new shirts after one wear due to a nasty stain they fear won't come out. It is easily done, be it coffee stains, red wine, pen ink or grease. However, it is actually easier to get a stain out a shirt than most people realise. Here, we can provide you with some tips on how to get a stain out a shirt.
Just go to the laundry aisle of the supermarket, and alongside powerful laundry liquids, you will find a range of effective stain removers that are able to remove everything from coffee to red wine, and everything in between. It isn't necessary to always go for a commercial stain remover however, especially as it is not always convenient when you have a stain to access a store. It is possible to tackle stains with ordinary household solutions as ingredients.
If you have to get a stain out a shirt, start by soaking it in cold water, and it should certainly be cold water. One thing you can do is mix 1/2 teaspoon of washing up liquid and 1 tablespoon of vinegar into the water, and soak the item for around 30 minutes, a cold salt water solution is also a good one to try. Next, rinse with water. Put in the wash as normal, and a pre-wash stain treatment can be used if you have one. This is usually enough to get most stains out, and you are less likely to have to get rid of the shirt.
