We all know the feeling, you are wearing your favourite white t-shirt, only to find that you have spilt something down it. It could be tea, red wine, coffee or perhaps some of your dinner. The feeling is always the same, the horror, the disappointment, the worry that you will never get to wear it again. It isn’t likely to be the best moment in your life.
However, fear not, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Here at Holé, we have your back covered, and to help you out, we have put together some of our top tips for how to get those pesky stains out of your favourite t-shirt and have it looking as good as new.
We are not going to go into the reason why you have grass stains on your favourite t-shirt, and we are not one to judge, however, if you have those pesky grass stains on your t-shirt there is something that you can do. Toothpaste is a great treatment for grass stains, all you need to use is plain white toothpaste and an old toothbrush, you need to stay away from any toothpaste that has gel in it as this can stain the t-shirt even further. The combo of the white toothpaste and scrubbing with the toothbrush should be enough to remove the stain.
Cooking, eating or simply just living life, all of these things can end up causing grease spots on your t-shirt. Grease can be hard to get out of your clothes, however, there are some different treatments that you can use, cornstarch is one of the best approaches to take. Cornstarch can be sprinkled on the stain, this will soak up the grease, before you brush it away and wash your t-shirt as normal.
Red Wine Stains
Watching red wine spill down onto your t-shirt is usually something that happens in slow motion, with wide eyes and lots of screaming. Red wine is a pain to get out of your t-shirt, but it is possible, especially if you treat it as soon as it happens. You will need to soak up the stain by sprinkling it with baking soda, then you will need to dab the stain with a damp and clean cloth, you should never scrub or rub it as this can make it worse. If you can, the next step is to stretch out the stain across a bowl, sprinkle it with salt and leave it for 5 minutes. Once this has set, you need to pour boiling water over the stain. This should push out the red wine stain and have your t-shirt looking as beautiful and clean as you want it to.
