Staining your clothes can be frustrating — especially if they’re new! However, you don’t have to let it ruin your day. You can effectively remove stains before they set and ruin your clothes. What’s more, you avoid using stain removal products with harmful chemicals and using your washer or dryer, saving you time, money, and valuable resources.

For example, did you know that removing grease stains is as easy as sprinkling baby powder onto the affected area? If you let it sit overnight, it will extract the grease from the fabric. Then, you can simply wash the spot with water. It’s that easy! That’s just one of several hacks for spot-cleaning your clothes in a pinch.
