Cleaning Tips for the Laundry Room

 

To remove perspiration stains in clothing, soak in warm vinegar and water.

 

 Microwaves can be used to emergency disinfect clothes, such as a child’s cap that another kid has put on, as long as they have absolutely NO metal in the zippers, buttons, rivets etc. ALWAYS place a cup of cold water next to the article to absorb the heat and microwave on high until the water is steaming.

 

 Removing mildew stains from clothes: Begin by brushing of mold outdoors so you don’t scatter mildew spores in the house. On washable fabrics, pretreat by rubbing detergent into the dampened stain. Then, launder the items in hot water, detergent and chlorine bleach, if it is safe for the fabric. If the stain remains, sponge it with hydrogen peroxide, rinse and launder. If the item isn’t bleach-safe, soak it in an oxygen bleach that is safe for colors, then wash it. Take non-washable fabrics to the dry cleaner and tell them what the stain is.

Happy Cleaning 🙂
