Don't let stains ruin your clothes.
Tackle spills and mishaps immediately with a prewash stain remover that can be applied up to a week in advance, then toss clothing in the hamper.
Make your own stain remover by mixing two parts water and one part rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. Treat stain, then let sit for a few minutes.
For grease stains, blot immediately, then treat with diluted dishwashing liquid.
