Summertime Stains

Fun in the sun? Not when you spend the summer fighting stains! I have some quick and easy solutions to fighting some of the most common stains this time of year!

1. Sun screen is a necessity in the summer but it can leave greasy stains on your clothes. Just treat with a little grease cutting dish soap. Rub it in and then wash the item in cold water.

2. Another summertime stain - grass. Try shampoo designed especially for oily hair. Saturate the stain with shampoo and wash in cold water. Or you can just put a dab of rubbing alcohol onto the spot. This will also tackle the mustard stains that the kids pick up at the ballgame or backyard barbeque.

3. Clothes are a magnet for barbeque sauce stains. Treat them by sponging with equal parts of white vinegar and water.

4. Ice cream stain? Wet the stain thoroughly and dab with unflavored meat tenderizer. Then wash the item in cold water!
