Say Goodbye to Stains

We have all experienced that by making a bad move we end up staining one of our favorite clothes or you may even find yourself with dirt on your clothes and you have no idea where it came from. It has happened to all of us and although this happens more frequently in children, when playing outdoors or doing crafts, no one is exempt from spoiling a valuable garment.

Many of us choose to throw them in the trash and buy a new one, but Mayu Cleaning Services brings you some solutions made from natural ingredients that will help you keep these garments for much longer, without any stains and without spending much time fighting against them:

Grease or oil stains:
It is very common that when cooking or eating, clothes are splashed with traces of grease or oil that can be very difficult to remove. If it is fresh, you can sprinkle a little talcum powder on the affected area, let it dry and then brush the garment with water and detergent. If the stain has already dried, dip the garment in a mixture of two parts of vinegar to one part of water and leave it to soak overnight, goodbye grease stains!

Blood stains:
If your favorite piece of clothing has been stained with blood, you can quickly solve it by applying hydrogen peroxide to the affected area or mixing it with just a little baking soda. This is advisable when it comes to white garments.

Makeup stains:
Sometimes we find ourselves in such a hurry getting ready for that important meeting that it is possible that the clothes end up stained with lipstick, by removing or putting on the clothes without removing makeup. Therefore, it is good to know how to act, in case it ever happens. Removing these stains from clothes is not complicated: If it is just lipstick, you must rub a little Vaseline, chalk, or white toothpaste. Let it act for a few minutes and rinse. Also, if the clothes are white, you can soak the stained clothes for an hour and add a few drops of lemon. Then wash it with the soap you usually use.

Chocolate Stain:
If the stain is fresh and can be washed immediately, apply water with baking soda to the stain and rinse with detergent. It will come out little by little. However, if the affected area is already dry, soak the garment in warm soapy water.

These were Mayu Cleaning Services tips.
