5 Green Stain Remover Hacks to Try at Home

When you’re as clumsy as I am, it’s useful to have some eco-friendly stain remover hacks at the ready! Read this guest post for more….

Did you know that the average American household consumes over 13,000 gallons of water a year washing clothes? That’s a lot of water going to waste — and it means you’ll have to pay off a steeper utility bill! So, what happens if you just stain a shirt or your pants? Do you spend all that time and effort to wash just one article of clothing? 

Obviously, this is a waste. It also increases your environmental footprint. Thankfully, there are more practical, cheaper, and greener methods to removing obnoxious stains that don’t involve your washing machine. Take a look around your pantry or kitchen cabinets — the items you need to remove pesky stains are most likely already there! 

For example, removing food and wine stains doesn’t require detergent. You can simply apply white vinegar to the spot, letting it soak for 10 minutes. Then, you simply rinse it with water to get rid of the smell. This is just one simple hack you can use.
