I came across this the other day and thought I’d share it. I’ve never tried any of these suggestions, so I don’t know if they work or not. If anyone has tried these, please let me know how it worked out for you.
Grease, Coffee, Red Wine — Mix together 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1/4 cup cold water, & 1 teaspoon laundry detergent. Dip paper towel in mixture and dab on spot. Rinse with cold water.
Blood — Mix together 1 teaspoon mild laundry detergent, 1/2 teaspoon clear ammonia, & 1/2 cup ice-cold water. Dunk a paper towel in the solution, then dab it on the blood. Rinse with cold water. Still there? Add 1 cup salt to 2 quarts cold water and soak garment in it. Toss in laundry machine with detergent.
Berries — Bring kettle of water to a boil. Spread stained clothing over top of bucket. Holding kettle a foot above bucket, pour water through the stain. The heat, coupled with the force, should drive berry dyes out.
Ink — Squeeze lemon on stain. Set garment out in sunshine. Repeat as necessary.
Lipstick — Apply a dab of clear petroleum jelly on the spot. Blot with a paper towel. Rinse with mineral spirits or, if the fabric is color-safe, hydrogen peroxide.
Mud — Allow mud to dry. Gently scrape it off with a flat edge, such as a credit card or a dull knife. Soak remaining dirt on garment in rubbing alcohol. Dab with paper towel.
Chewing Gum — Place item in freezer overnight, with gum side facing out. Remove from freezer and scrape the gum gently with a flat edge.
