Laundry Tip: Stains

Sorry guys, I will promise to return soon. Things are crazy at work at the moment, and by the time I get home of a night I eat dinner and fall asleep! 

However I wanted to tell you about something I discovered recently. I am a messy cook. I will get dirty no matter what I am cooking. A LOT of my clothes end up with oil stains on them. Majority of the times they are good clothes, that now become house clothes due to the oil stain.

So the other day I had to ring a solicitor about an issue at work, and was put on hold for a little bit. Which suited me fine, as they had their phone system linked to Shannon Lush on ABC Radio. And today she was talking about oil stains! AWESOMENESS!

So here is the trick to get oil stains out of clothes: Apply a small amount of dishwashing liquid (doesnt matter on brand) on the stain. Shut your eyes, and rub the dishwashing liquid in a circular motion. It will change to a jello consistancy after a bit. Wash as per usual. No more stain.

I tried this the other week on a pair of shorts, and it worked even though I stained them 6 months ago. Go on, give it a go.
