Seems like I am always doing laundry in our house; it used to be all kinds of baby stains, but I have to admit that out of the three of us, I am the one that makes the most stains right now. Yes, I know… but I have a valid reason -I am either cooking or tasting, so it is a risk I take when making up the recipes to write my blog! 🙂 I do get the odd coffee and wine stains on there too – maybe I should start to wear an apron….
Some stains are tough, and they need a bit of extra care and resourcefulness in getting rid of them. I know that I used to try all kinds of things to get things out.
One of the fastest and handiest tricks was to use baby wipes- for some reason, blotting the stain really well with the wipes [whatever they have in them – works ] would get most of, if not all of the stain out. If there was a bit of stain left, I would use Resolve in the wash to get it out completely.
One night last week I had made a delicious Chocolate blueberry ice-cream. I left it in the freezer a bit too long, so it was a bit too hard when I first took it out –as I was trying to scoop some of the frozen treat out into a bowl, a few of the ‘crystals ‘landed on my dress. However, I didn’t discover it until much later. 🙁 I went to my go- to, emergency quick clean up – baby wipes. It did get most of the stain out but not all, there was still a faint bit of a tinge of colour. Having chocolate and blueberry mixed up in a stain together really needed something else to get it out completely=>Resolve.
Just mix 1/4 scoop of Resolve Oxi-Action stain remover with 3/4 scoop warm water. Mix into a paste and scrub paste into stain, Resolve includes a clever scoop with nobbles on the bottom in order to work it right into the stain. Let sit for 5 or more minutes, then add the garment with paste into the wash as normal with other garments and add one scoop of Resolve Oxi-Action. And just like that, the stain is gone!
