How do I remove an oil stain from my clothes? Bet on the salt!

Have you accidentally left stains on your jacket or pants? It’s not very bad! Instead of feeling sorry for yourself, don’t waste your time unnecessarily, so grab the bull by the horns and follow our guidelines. Don’t worry, it won’t take long. Here are the steps:

  • Apply some dishwashing liquid to the stained area of the fabric as soon as possible. Don’t skimp on the product.
  • Cover the soiled area completely to ensure full absorption.
  • Immediately after, sprinkle enough salt over it. It is excellent for dyeing and brightening fabrics.
  • Leave on for about ten minutes.
  • Then remove the salt with an old toothbrush and wipe the area with a damp cloth.

For faster drying, you can even use the hair dryer. Usually, the effect is immediate:  The stain disappears immediately as if by magic. However, if stubborn traces are still visible, do not hesitate to repeat the process a second time to completely remove the oil stain.

Salt and lemon: wonderful combination against limescale in glasses

You would never have thought that salt is so versatile, right? It’s true that most people have no idea about its cleaning power! Moreover, it is not only great for removing small stains on laundry, but it is also an important helper in the fight against limescale, which is widespread in dishwashers. Because even though this device is very handy in everyday life to save you time and make washing up easier, it doesn’t prevent your glasses from often coming back with an unsightly dull and whitish coating. And it’s really quite frustrating! But where exactly does it come from, by the way? Too much lime in the water, unsuitable or inferior detergent, wrong temperature or simply lack of maintenance of the machine itself. Do not worry, we have an ideal solution to prevent this.

A mixture of salt and lemon

Both fit the situation best. The technique is quite simple:

  • Cut a lemon in half.
  • Take one half, rub your jars gently, and then pour in the salt.
  • Rub well again with a sponge until you have completely removed the lime spots.
  • Then rinse your glasses thoroughly.

And there you go, the problem is solved, with the added bonus of a stunning shine!

Tip: To avoid this annoying setback, when cleaning your glasses in the dishwasher, remember to lower the temperature to below 67 °F and use appropriate detergents (without exceeding the prescribed dose). Oh yes, of course, also make sure that this type of glass is suitable for machine washing.
