Whether it’s your favorite shirt, dress, or expensive suit you might as well embrace the fact that it will probably get a stain at some point. Here’s another trusty tip to help get rid of those maddening stains: With 1-gallon hot water, add 1 cup regular salt, and 1 cup powdered dishwasher detergent.
Soak any badly stained washable white cloth over the mixture in a plastic, enamel, or stainless steel bowl for 15-20 minutes or until the stain completely disappears. Wash as usual and you should be good to go.
Moisture Stain Remover
As humble helpers of this sacred Earth, we have all struggled with the dreaded stain left on wood after spilling our drink. Well, not anymore! Now all you need to remove these pesky marks is one part baking soda and one part white non-gel toothpaste. Wet a cloth with water, add the toothpaste solution then rub it with the grain to buff the water rings.
Take a dry cloth to wipe it off and use a different one to polish as you usually would. But whatever you do, don't use this solution on unfinished wood, antiques, or lacquered surfaces!
Clean Build-Up on Your Iron
