How often we have encountered frustration while trying stain removal from clothes. All those grease or rust stains simply refuse to go away. Here I am going to show some handy and effective methods to remove grease and rust stains from clothes.
Grease Stain removal from clothes
To remove a black grease stain from clothing, saturate the stain with rubbing alcohol and then blot with a clean white cloth. If the stain persists, try using a grease cutting dish detergent, such as Dawn, and rub with a soft toothbrush. Another option, although it seems absurd, is to soak the soiled cloth area overnight in a solution of detergent, soda and water. Subsequently wash as usual.
Rust Stain removal from clothes
The best way to get rust stains out of your clothing is to use a lemon, or table salt and cream of tarter.
- To use a lemon, lay your garment on a flat surface on top of a towel.
- Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice onto the rust stain. (If you do not have a lemon, you can use bottled lemon juice, it works just as well.)
- Lay your garment in the sun and allow it to dry.
- Once your garment has dried, look to see if the stain has lifted. If it has not, repeat the process.
- If the stain is removed, launder your garment.
Salt and Cream of Tarter
- To use salt and cream of tarter, simply make a mixture using equal parts of both.
- Lay your garment on a flat surface on top of a towel.
- Spread your cream of tarter and salt mixture onto the stain.
- Place your garment in the sun and allow it to dry.
- If the stain has lifted, launder the shirt.
- If the stain has not lifted, repeat the process.
