How to remove tomato and ketchup stains
Tomato stains, including ketchup, can be difficult to remove, especially on white fabric! Like main stains, they’re easier to remove if you catch them early, but even if they’re left until laundry day, you should be able to remove them. The key is being patient and using the right cleaning product for the job.
Start by scraping off as much of the sauce as possible, without smearing it and increasing the size of the stain. Then, flush the stain with cold water from the back of the fabric. Washing from the front will only push the stain further into the fabric. Do not use hot water, as this will only cause the stain to set. Then, rub in dish soap, which helps remove the oil and grease in the sauce, as well as removes some of the color. If your fabric is white or colorfast, you can then apply a mild bleaching agent.
If after these treatments the fabric is still stained, apply a stain remover and let it sit. Lastly, wash it normally, but before you dry, double-check to see if the stain is gone. After it goes through the dryer, the stain will be permanent, but if you can catch it before you dry it, you can go through the cleaning steps again.
How to remove milk stains
If you live with children, you’ll eventually end up with milk stains on your clothes, carpet, or furniture at some point. They’re a relatively easy stain to remove — as long as you know what you’re doing.
After milk spills, blot up the excess with a towel. Then, rub the stain with a mixture of cold water, dish-washing soap, and a little baking soda. After that, rinse with cold water and repeat until the stain is removed.
How to remove grass stains
Grass is an organic matter, so it’s important to start with a soak in cold water before you do anything. The key is to keep it wet, because once it dries, it may set and be difficult to remove. After the garment is soaked, apply some laundry detergent directly on the stain, then gently scrub. Next, toss it in the washing machine and wash as usual. You can also try using rubbing alcohol, which can be effective on grass-stained jeans.
