The idea of hosting your first dinner party to celebrate your new home is exciting, right? The conversations and drinks are flowing – you’re having a pretty awesome dinner party (even if you say so yourself). The next morning comes and all you see are stains. We have the perfect remedies for some of the most common stains.
Red wine stains are probably the most stubborn of all stains, especially if they have already dried up. To remove, mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and dishwashing liquid in a spray bottle. Spray mixture on stain then rub gently with a sponge. Repeat this action then pat dry with a dry towel.
Glass rings on wooden table
The excitement that ensues after drinks have been flowing for a while can make some of your guests forget that coasters are there for a reason. It’s bad enough when your glass table is stained. But staining your wooden table is almost unforgivable. One way of removing a glass stain on a wooden surface is by mixing one teaspoon of baking soda with just a few drops of water to create a paste. Using a cloth, rub the paste over the white ring gently until it has disappeared. Thereafter, use furniture polish to restore the table’s shine.
Spices like Tumeric can leave the brightest yellow stains on your crisp white shirt. They are often very difficult to remove. As with any other stain, it’s always better to act quick in getting them removed. To combat a curry stain, rinse the fabric with water (be careful not to spread the stain by rubbing). Pour some baking soda onto the stain then leave for five minutes. With a sponge, rub the stain with a sponge then rinse off the baking soda. Wash the fabric as normal then let it dry out in the sun.
