Getting Stains Out of Linens!

Don't pass up those vintage linens just because they have some stains. Or maybe you have a spot or two on your linens. See how to get those stains out using lemon juice, salt and vinegar.
What to do with those stubborn stains?
Lay a towel under your piece. Squeeze lemon juice onto the stained area.
Sprinkle salt on the lemon juice. I like to take the lemon halves and rub the lemon around in the salt. Let sit for at least and hour. Pour some vinegar over the stain and then launder as usual.
The stain is gone. Not all stains will come out, but many will.

    I use liquid tide and then an oxy clean from Dollar Tree. ( guess how much.) and about Every stain comes out. I like to let it sit overnight.
