Can't Get A Stain Out? Try This.

When you’re struggling to get something clean, it can feel like the most frustrating thing ever. Whether you’re trying to get your whites whiter or to remove a bad stain, you can often feel like you’ve tried everything to get it out. Shortly after we had our dining room furniture delivered, I, of course, spilled some pasta sauce on a chair. Instead of settling for the pesky stain, I tried something new. From professional, natural and quick and easy tips, here’s what you need to know to deal with stubborn stains.

Laundry
First up, let’s talk laundry. If you've got children, you will, most certainly, find different marks and stains on your clothing and household items. Whether it’s grass stains on your kid's clothes, makeup marks, or even sweat stains on your workout gear, you can often feel like you’re fighting a losing battle. But, instead of spending lots of money on trying new stain removers and tricks, why not think about using a natural remedy? Believe it or not, vinegar works wonders and could be the solution you’re looking for.

Bed Linens
We have white sheets and there's nothing that shows every single speck of dirt than white sheets. I often feel as if I spend way too much effort trying to get then back to their original shade of white. In addition to stains, you also have the body oil and odors to try and remove each week. However, there is a little trick that you can try that might make this process a little bit easier for you, and ensuring that your bedding smells fresher than fresh.

Carpets
When it comes to cleaning your carpets, you can often find that that vacuuming is never enough. When stains and marks appear, you scrub away at them, but the rest of your carpet can look and feel uneven. To combat that, you might want to give steam cleaning a try. It is a very effective way to ensure that your carpets are kept super clean and look new all year round.

Wall Stains
For one reason or another, you may also find that you have the odd wall stain pop up from time to time. When you have kids or a pet, this definitely can be a more regular occurrence.  One of the ways that you can aim to combat this is to clean off the stains with a mild soapy water solution. Sometimes, the paint is removed in the process. To avoid removing paint, try a wipeable paint. If you discover that some of the paint was removed during the cleaning process, you can always touch it up.

Kitchen
With worries about food contamination and the spread of germs, we tend to put a lot more time and attention into keeping our kitchens clean compared to other rooms in our homes. But how do you know when you’ve done enough? One of the best ways to ensure that it sparkles, that stains are removed, and that it’s healthy, is to use an anti-bacterial cleanser to kill eliminate bacteria.
