Tip of the Week: Blasting Baby Formula Stains

Baby formula seems innocent, but the stain it leaves on clothing and other fabrics can be brutal! Below are a few simple steps to help remove that stain permanently. These steps are also effective on lots of other stubborn stains.
  1. First, soak the stain in cold water. Try and do this as quickly after the spill as possible. The cold water will help make the product that you use more effective.
  2. Bleach is powerful stain-fighter, but there are effective natural alternatives to chemical cleaners. Try lemon juice or white vinegar, tried-and-true cleaning ingredients that have been in use for generations. Another lesser-known cleaning solution is meat tenderizer mixed with water.
  3. If all else fails, my favorite product for stains is a Fels-Naptha bar, available online and at some local grocery stores, too. It will take out anything!
Do you have any other handy ideas on how to make the laundry room a nicer place to be? Please share with a comment!
