These are some of the most STUBBORN stains and how to get rid of them.
If you’ve got damp in the walls, it can easily creep through the back of the wardrobe and onto your clothes, it can also get into the curtains near windows that aren’t very well insulated. But don’t worry, there is a way that you can solve it. The first thing to say is that if this is a persistent problem, you’ve got bigger worries than some ruined clothes and you need to get mold remediation services in to get rid of the root cause. Once you’ve done that, you can look bringing those moldy clothes back to life. You need to remove the bulk of the mold before washing it so take an old toothbrush and some hot water and gently scrub them away. When you’re washing them, you need to do it at the hottest temperature possible to make sure you kill all of the mold spores, just remember to check the labels first.
You can’t exactly wear that white shirt with a giant yellow splodge in the middle so a mustard stain needs to be dealt with immediately. The best thing for it is some white wine vinegar which will lift most of the stain. Don’t scrub it, otherwise, you’ll just make it worse. Once you’ve applied some vinegar to it, mix up a solution of dish soap and water (about 1 tablespoon to 10 ounces of water) and soak it for a while before washing.
You’re probably thinking that you already know how to sort this one, pour white wine over it, right? Don’t bother, it doesn’t work. It’s an old myth and doesn’t do anything to get the stain out. Instead of wasting more wine, sprinkle some salt over the stain right away and then, just like the coffee stain, pull the fabric over a bowl and pour boiling water through it.
