Remove Old Stains From Your Clothes With These Tricks

The longer a stain sits on your clothes, the more permanent it becomes. But that doesn’t mean you should throw away your favorite jeans just because you found a stain. Most old stains can be removed even if they’ve been laundered. Let’s see how.

Dish Soap

Using dish soap is a great way to get rid of your grease or oil stains. Put some dish soap onto the stain and let it sit for a while. Hopefully, the stains will disappear after you wash it in the laundry.


White Vinegar is the next best solution you can find in your kitchen. It’s great for water-based stains such as coffee and tea. Mix it with water in a 1 to 3 part solution and your clothes will be as good as new. For sauce stains apply vinegar directly on cloth and then soak it for a while.


Bleaching should be your last resort and you should use it only if you’ve exhausted all options. Before you treat the stain with bleach you should first test if the garment will change color. Mix 1 part chlorine bleach and 5 parts water and place a drop on your garment. If there’s no change, you’re good to go.
