Let's rewind back to when I was pregnant with my first, Ryder. Momma was awesome at giving me advice and tips for when my bundle of joy arrived. While I appreciated all of the words of wisdom, there is one that I use almost daily...and probably will for another 16 years or so...

Simple, Easy, Cheap Ways to Remove Stains

I present to you the secret of it all...a bar of Ivory soap and a toothbrush.

No, I'm not joking. It is really this simple for you to remove stains! I have removed everything from the stains left by an explosive diaper, make-up, spit up, blood, grass stains, you name it!

Follow these steps:

  1. Wet your stain
  2. Gently rub the bar of soap over the stain for a few seconds
  3. Scrub the stain in circles with your toothbrush
  4. Once you think you have most of the stain out, rinse
  5. If needed, repeat
If you happen to have a stain on a garment that you are actually wearing and is not going into the laundry, then you can follow these steps:

  1. Lightly dampen the stain
  2. Lightly rub your toothbrush on your bar of soap
  3. Scrub the stain in circles with your toothbrush
  4. Rinse toothbrush completely and scrub where the stain was in order to remove excess soap
  5. Use a lightly dampened cloth to remove any excess soap the toothbrush left
Now, say you are almost ready to run out the door and someone dumps food down the front of their shirt. There is no time to scrub the stain, but you don't want the stain to set. What to do?! I gotcha covered! Follow these easy steps:

  1. Put enough cold water into a sink or large bowl to cover your stained garment
  2. Pour in 1-2 tablespoons of laundry detergent, and stir gently 
  3. Put your garment in the water, and push it down until it is submerged
  4. Leave to soak until you can work on the stain (if it is even still there when you return!)
So there you have it! Passed down from Grandma to Momma to me and now you!
