Use an eyedropper to apply alcohol directly onto the stain or, for a larger spot, pour the alcohol into a small dish, immerse the stained area and soak for 15 minutes. The ink should begin to dissolve almost immediately). General stains--Saturate set-in stains with vinegar, then rub the spot with a paste made from equal parts vinegar and baking soda. You can add a couple tablespoons each of vinegar and laundry detergent to a bucket of water and soak the garment overnight ​if the stain persists.;Gum--freeze off with ice cubes then use either hairspray,rubbing alcohol or WD40 to remove residue( apply let sit til it's begins to break down) Then, rinse and wash. Really need to know what "stains" are for best removal because there are so many

    Hi Sue,

    Step 1

    Pour three tablespoons of white vinegar and two tablespoons of liquid detergent into a quart-size spray bottle. Fill the remainder of the bottle with warm water.

    Step 2

    Shake the contents of the bottle to mix the cleaner and spray the set-in stain with the cleaning solution.

    Step 3

    Rub the solution into the stain with a clean cloth, and then blot dry.

    Step 4

    Launder the item as you normally would. Check to see if the stain lifted before drying the item. If the stain did not lift completely, repeat the steps until you've completely removed the stain.

    White Clothes Only

    Step 1

    Set your washing machine to the delicate cycle and allow it to fill with cool water.

    Step 2

    Pour bleach into the bleach dispenser, or directly into the water if your washer is not equipped with a dispenser. Follow the bleach manufacturer's instructions for quantity of bleach to add, as it is based on the concentration of the bleach.

    Step 3

    Place the garment in the washing machine after the bleach has mixed together with the water.

    Step 4

    Check to see if the stain lifted before drying the item. If the stain did not lift completely, you can try washing it in bleach again--but, eventually, too much bleach will turn the object yellow.

    Rubbing alcohol for inks, hydrogen peroxide for blood, oily stains dish soap like dawn , or sunlight laundry bar soap, wet it and rub it on the oily stain

    What color are the clothes? white, I spray 10% solution of bleach right on the spots until it disappears.

    Colored fabrics try some of the non-bleach addititives like Oxy-Clean.

    Soak in a sink with enzyme cleaner added, especially if they are old food stains. Or try Oxi-Clean.
