Dealing with the tough stains

Every time you clean your house you are presented with a job that nobody actually likes to do. To do it properly you have to devote your time and your energy.

The big problem when it comes to cleaning is the stains which take that extra effort to clean. Tough stains can be on different things in your house, like your clothes or furniture, but the method to clean them is the same. We will list a few ways on how to deal with those tough stains.

1) The Coffee stains

This is a type of stain that hits every house, and if lucky it hits you just once a month. The usual way to deal with these stains is to grab some baking soda and sprinkle it on a wet rag when you try to blot the stain out. The second way is to mix in a teaspoon of detergent in a small bucket of water. Apply it on the stain and then rinse it with a mixture of water and vinegar.

2) The Red Wine stains

This type of stain can happen on everything in your house. Your clothing can be the victim or your carpet. The funniest part of cleaning freshly spilled red wine is you can use white wine on a piece of cloth and try to rub it out.

If it is a dried red wine stain, you have to use shaving cream and make sure you apply just enough to cover the stain and leave it for a couple of minutes. After which you will try washing it down with hot water and a rag.

If all else fails call in professional carpet cleaners – their heavy duty cleaning equipment should be able to lift the stains.


3) Sticky stains like Gum, Glue, etc.

If these types of stains happen on your clothes, if possible put the clothes in the freezer. When your clothes freeze, rub off with a rag the parts where the substance has frozen. If it’s on a carpet, you can grab some ice cubes in a piece of cloth and try to freeze the area where the gum is glued.

For glue stains, you need to use professional products. Just make sure you leave them on the stain at least 10-15 minutes, so the stain gets out easier.
