Greener Cleaners: Natural Stain Removers
Tip #2: Natural stain removers
No one likes the smell (or health or environmental effects) of bleach. Use lemon juice to whiten fabrics instead, and a mixture of lemon juice and salt to remove individual stains. Adding half a cup of baking soda to your wash could also get rid of tough stains without the scrubbing. Spilled red wine? Try putting some white wine over it. Glycerin, dishwashing soap, and water can also work wonders. If it's oil you're trying to get out, use baby powder to soak it up: It's a beauty secret for hair that works on clothes and upholstery too.
