Perspiration Stains
Let antiperspirant or deodorant dry completely before putting on your garment.Pre-treat the underarm area of the garment with liquid laundry detergent, so the buildup can be washed away. If the stain is old, treat the area with white or apple cider vinegar to help dissolve the perspiration. Wash in hot water at least every third or fourth time to get rid of the buildup.


For clothes that you launder, soaking the bloodstained garment in cold water for about 30 minutes will usually remove it. However, if stains are visible, mix a bit of water with unseasoned meat tenderizer (which breaks down the protein in the blood) and apply to the area

Ink Stain
Ink formulations, fabrics, and hairspray ingredients have changed today. To get rid of the ballpoint ink from clothing you launder, place the garment on a towel stain-side down. Lightly dampen a cloth with rubbing alcohol and gently dab (do not rub) the stain.


Pour club soda over the stain, letting it bubble up. Continue applying soda until the color of the stain has been removed


For fresh stains on white fabric, moisten cloth with water, dip in baking soda and blot the stained area. If stain persists, rub detergent into stain or use an enzyme presoak product. Rinse thoroughly, then launder using bleach safe for fabric (and baby) in hottest water safe for fabric.
