HANDY STAIN FIGHTER
What’s a family outing without your kid dribbling a splotch of ketchup or pizza sauce onto their shirt? Just reach for the hand sanitizer you now never leave home without, as long as it doesn’t contain dyes or moisturizers (those can cause their own stains). The alcohol in the sanitizer breaks down grease and even ink. If the garment is cotton or a cotton blend, squirt the spot with sanitizer, then dab it with a cloth. At home, wash as usual, but hold off on the dryer until the mark is gone for good. Later, stains! Source: Katie Berry, of the blog Housewife How-tos.
