Yet another save. I managed to spill something down the front of a brand new t shirt. Have used various stain removers and nothing worked. Only thing to do - cover it up. I did not use a solid design and it covers the stain fairly well. I think I need to make some bibs for myself. LOL.

Like the save.. But the pre-wash mix is 1/3 ammonia (lemon helps with the smell factor), 1/3 water, 1/3 dish washing liquid (if this is new concentrate - dilute to old less THICK status). Soak the stain and
wash with the rest of the load. Takes out most food (grease) stains.
That and hair spray for ball point pen help me if the shirt does not get washed first. Set stains have to be "Saved".

Good tip!

pennyhal2 by pennyhal2 21 Oct 2015

Also, make sure the dish washing liquid does not contain bleach...

Washing powder( not detergent) and borax half and half.mix in water and soak. Really does well for me. Nice light and airy design.
