Printable Chart for Getting Tough Stains Out of Clothes

The School of Fibre Science & Technology at the University of New South Wales has a simply-formatted chart that compiles some of the best stain-fighting wisdom around. Some of these ideas we've covered before, but here's a few no-purchase-necessary treatments from a source I'm inclined to trust:

  • IRON RUST—Soak stain in lemon juice. Rinse and wash.
  • TEA—Rinse immediately with cold water and wash according to fabric. For dried stain, damp with cold water and sprinkle with borax. Pour hot water through the stain. Rinse well and wash according to fabric.
  • BLOOD—Soak in cold salted water (1 teaspoonful to 1 pint) for at least an hour. Wash in warm soapy water.
