This is such an amazing tip that I just had to pass it along to our wonderful Homestead Survival readers.
This only works on stains that are NOT set in …. never went through the wash before.
Instead of using extra laundry detergent to pre-treat clothing before washing them…. turn to white chalk.
Simply rub onto greasy stains and the chalk powder will absorb the grease, making the stain easily removable by the laundry soap in the washing machine on a normal cycle.
It might sound simple, but it’s has been reported by many sources that it works wonders on a variety of different types of stains including the tough stain of bacon grease.
- 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.
