Chewing gum and ice

The wonders of ice cannot be underestimated, especially with beauty, health and lifestyle. Yes, ice can help remove chewing gum stains too. Even if there was adhesive tape stuck to your clothing, the ice cube is what you’d need. Apply a cube of ice to the surface of the stain so that it hardens and then scrape it off with a blunt knife. Use a pre-wash detergent thereafter and rinse in cold water!

Food and spice stains

Very annoying to have a dab of mustard splattered over your whites and light-coloured clothing, which is why while cooking with mustard, you need to be very careful. Turn the fabric inside out to begin with, and use a pre-stain treatment lotion to soak into the affected area. Use hot water (a bucket) to which a cup of chlorine is added. Wait for an hour and then remove the garment from the water. If the stain still shows up, wipe it off with glycerine!
