5 Ways To Clean Common Household Stains

Here’s how to clean some of the most common household stains.

  1. Coffee Stains

    Coffee stains are among the most common household stains. To get coffee out of the carpet, begin by blotting up as much of it as possible. Then, pour a bit of water on the stain and blot again. The goal here is to try to absorb as much of the coffee as possible.

  2. Next, mix 1 tablespoon of vinegar with 1 tablespoon of dish soap and 2 cups of warm water. Apply the solution to the stain and then blot with a power towel. Lastly, follow this by putting a bit of water on the stain again and blot until as dry as possible.

    For coffee-stained mugs, create a paste of baking soda and water in your mug; allow it to sit for a few minutes and then scrub the stain with a sponge.

  3. Burnt Stains

    If you have pots and pans that have burnt stains on them, you can have your cookware looking brand new in no time. Simply fill the bottom of your pot or pan with water and add one cup of vinegar. Next, bring the pot or pan to a boil.

  4. Next, remove the pot from the heat and then add baking soda. Then empty the pot or pan and begin to scrub. If there are still some stubborn marks, just add a bit of baking soda and water and make a paste; allow it to sit there for a few minutes and then scrub it again.

  5. Scuff Marks

    A house can quickly accumulate various scuff marks, both on the walls and the floors. To remedy this, simply spray an all-purpose cleaner on a sponge and wipe the wall or floor. You can also use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (all you need to do is dampen it and then gently rub the scuff).

  6. Red Wine Stains

    For red wine stains on light-coloured countertops, begin by dabbing (not rubbing) the red wine. Next, wipe the countertop with baking soda and water. Follow this by wiping the countertop down with dish soap and water. Lastly, follow by applying of mixture of 3 parts hydrogen peroxide and 1 part dishwashing liquid. Allow the mixture to sit before wiping it up. Repeat as necessary. You can also substitute the hydrogen peroxide mixture with bleach.

  7. Pet Stains

    For pet accidents on the carpet, blot up as much of the stain as possible with paper towel. Next, pour vinegar over the stain and add a little bit of baking soda. Allow the mixture to sit for at least a few hours, but overnight is best. Follow this with vacuuming the baking soda.
