The next day, bring it to us and Depend on Dependable to make your shirt look as good as new.
VINEGAR: Sponge the stain with white vinegar and wash. If the stain is really bad, try soaking the garment overnight in a solution of three parts vinegar to one part water. This works best on cotton fabrics.
SALT: For red wine stains, sprinkle a bit of salt on the stain and let it sit for about five minutes. Rinse with cold water while rubbing the stain. Repeat as needed, then wash.
WHITE WINE: Who knew? One of the best ways to remove red wine stains is with…white wine. (They neutralize each other.) Just pour the white wine over the red wine stain before washing.
CLUB SODA: Try to avoid using for any particularly greasy stains, as club soda might set it. For everything else, sprinkle the stain with salt and pour the seltzer water over. Leave overnight. This works especially well for coffee spills.
EGG YOLK: To get out a nasty coffee stain, mix the yolk with a few drops of alcohol and warm water. Apply the mixture to the stain with a sponge. Let sit for a couple of minutes and rinse.
