Tips to Remove Clothing Stains from DealDash


Don’t let clothing stains get you down. Here are three tips from DealDash to help clean the stains.

Clothing stains happen naturally. Every once in awhile you will spill something on your shirt that will cause it to have a stain. Sometimes it is tough to remove a stain from your shirt, but it is easier than you think. Here are some easy ways to remove clothing stains from your clothing, from DealDash.

Examine the Clothing Tag

One of the easiest ways to remove stains from your clothing is to simply look at the tag. The tag on your shirt or pants will tell you how to wash and remove stains from your clothing. It will help you not to damage or mishandle your clothing by washing your clothes the wrong way. Looking at your tags will save you a lot of time when it comes to removing stains from clothes. It seems simple, but it really helps!

Always Soak the Stain in Water

Before you begin any stain removing treatment from your clothes, it is important to soak your clothing in water. Always use cold water because it will prevent the stain from drying. You should keep the area that is stained submerged in water. Remember to always blot the stain and never rub it. This can push the stain deeper into the fabric.

Determine the Type of Fabric

The type of fabric is important when it comes to removing a stain on your clothing.  You can determine what type of stain remover that you will need based on the type of fabric. Tags that are on your clothing usually identifies what type of fabric that it is made out of, and what type of washing procedures you should do. When you determine the type of fabric that your clothing has will make it easier to remove stains properly.

DealDash Helps Whiten Your Clothing


Having the whitest whites that you can manage is a point of pride in the laundry world. Here are some tips and suggestions from DealDash to get you started.

Are your white clothing the whitest that they can be? No? Do your white clothing items have some yellow marks, stains, or are they just plain old dingy? Well, no problem. DealDash is here to help you whiten and brighten your white clothing. Read on for more information.

Bleach for the All-White Items

This one is fairly obvious, everyone knows about bleach! However, some people don’t realize that it osn’t recommended not to use bleach on items that have white as well as other colors. So with that said, if you have a patterned or multi-colored item you want to brighten up, use a method instead of chlorine bleach.


Surprisingly, Hydrogen Peroxide will eliminate a lot of stains, including blood as long as you apply it soon enough. You can use peroxide on clothing, table cloths, and even shoes. Simply rinse off as much of the stain as you can, and then liberally apply the peroxide. Personally, I put my peroxide in a spray bottle and spray any stains before I toss them in the hamper or washing machine. Peroxide makes an excellent stain pre-treater.

Dawn Dish Detergent

My favorite dish detergent is Dawn, of course, and it can be used for so many things. However, the best use of Dawn dish detergent stain-wise is on greasy stains. If I am cooking and I get any greasy stains on my clothing I immediately put some Dawn on a paper towl and blot it into the grease stain. After that I just leave it in as a pre-treatment.

Dawn is great to clean just about anything! Just remember, though, that it foams up really well, so don’t put too much on at one time or you will get way too much foam action going on in your washing machine. If you feel like you need a lot for the stain, just be sure that you rinse it out before you put it in the washing machine.

DealDash Presents: Surprising Household Cleaners

DealDash cleaners

Cleaning your house doesn’t have to equal expensive cleaning products. DealDash takes a peek at things around the home that you can use to clean.

Did you know that you can solve your cleaning issues with everyday things that you can find in your kitchen? It’s surprising but true! You won’t believe that such simple products could do so many tough cleaning jobs.


Did you know that soap residue can cause the colors on your favorite clothing to look faded? Add a teaspoon of black pepper to the wash cycle (along with cold water detergent) the next time you’re doing a load of colored clothing. Be sure to wash on cold. 

How it works: The pepper exfoliates the soap residue that causes clothing to fade. The pepper washes away with the rinse cycle, just as if you had spilled pepper on your clothing and washed it.


Oops! You forgot to put the cap on your pen, and the ink ended up staining your shirt pocket. Don’t worry!

Pour some milk on the spot and let your shirt on the edge of your bathtub for 1 hour to 24 hours (depending on how severe the ink spot) and everything will be back to normal! Amazing, isn’t it?


Where does your child like to draw? Hopefully, it’s on paper. But as the mom of 3 little ones, I know that they’re just as likely to be drawing on the walls and furniture. Put some mayonnaise on the “masterpiece” and let it like that for 10 minutes. Gently rub and wash with a towel. The furniture and walls should be like brand new.

However, please test this in a very small and inconspicuous area. This could possibly cause more harm than good if you have any special finishes on your walls or special fabric on your furniture.


Ouch! You were handling something with wooden parts, and there is a sliver in your finger? Fear splinters no more! Rub the spot with some garlic and the splinter will come out immediately.


Don’t waste money on sophisticated bug sprays, but rather prepare your best weapon against mosquitos at home. Here’s how:

  1. Mix one cup of milk with five spoons of sugar and a spoon of black pepper
  2. boil the mixture for 10 minutes.
  3. Let it cool down and pour it in small containers that you will put in the buggy places.

Carbonated Water

Have you ever spilled red wine on your carpet? Oh, how I wish I knew about this magic trick when I did this myself years back!

First, don’t panic. Pour some carbonated water on the spot and let it dry. The wine spot will miraculously disappear! 

Bay Leaf

Did you know that bay leaves are the worst enemies of insects? Put some in your garden and keep your plants insect-proofed.


Before you throw the banana peel into the compost bin or garbage, take those long strips and use the inside part to rub your cutlery, leather shoes, and leather sofa and then wipe them with a soft cloth. Voila! Shiny!


Oh, books could be filled with the many uses of this magic liquid.  The claims are well deserved.  Did you know that vinegar can be used to clean the spots on the tea kettle or pots and pans? How?

Water + Vinegar + Boil. Rinse well and look how clean your kettle or pots and pans are now.

DealDash Advises on Laundry Stain Removal

DEALDASH laundry stain removal

Washing your clothing is easy, but what about when there’s a tough stain? Here are some suggestions and tips for laundry stain removal from DealDash.

It’s happened to the best of us – you’re out to dinner and you get a drop of red wine, sauce, or other food stain on your brand new light-colored shirt. Or perhaps it wasn’t you, but one of your kids spilling something on your outfit when you’re out in public. You attempt to rub it off with a napkin, but it only gets worse. You aren’t headed back home for hours, are you doomed to have a stained outfit? Maybe – but maybe not! Read these helpful tips from DealDash for removing laundry stains from your clothing.


Did your or your husband get ink on your clothing at work? Or maybe it was the kids playing in the pen drawer! Is it possible to get out ink stains? Yep! Grab a can of hairspray! It might sound a little strange, but the alcohol in the spray will help to lift the ink from the fabric – apply directly onto the stain, leave on for 30 – 45 seconds, and wipe away with a damp cloth. Launder after.


It’s possible to get paint out of clothing, and luckily most paint that is marketed towards children is water-based (acrylic) This paint can be removed by rinsing the back of the stain with warm water. Next, wash in the machine with your regular laundry detergent.

Unfortunately, oil-based paint is a little bit trickier. First, check garment care label and do not attempt this method if your clothing is made from rayon, acetate or triacetate. Next, test on an inconspicuous area of the garment first. Be sure to wear rubber gloves. If this doesn’t work, take it to the dry cleaners. Maybe they will have better luck.


Small cuts and scrapes can result in tough blood stains. The trick here is to use cold water to rinse the affected garment ­– hot water will merely set the stain further. Try spraying or pouring on a little hydrogen peroxide before you rinse the garment in cold water. It should bubble away most of the blood.

Tomato Sauce / Ketchup

Amazingly,  lemons can help get rid of many red sauce stains. The acidity in the lemon juice works to cut through the oil – just rub a cut lemon over the stain before rinsing with water.

I hope that you found this new DealDash article on laundry stains helpful. If you are shopping for Tide pods, an iron, art supplies, or other, check DealDash first. DealDash has it all! Visit DealDash now. DealDash wants to make your life easier. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

DealDash Cleans Up Your Carpet

Aren’t carpet stains the worst? Well, DealDash is here to help you with some tips to get the stains out.

Picture it, you’re having a party, the snacks and drinks are flowing freely, and you hear “Oops!! My wine!” You inwardly sigh and go get paper towels to at least do a little damage control. The next day you see what an awful stain it really is, and you wonder how you will ever get that stain out.

Or perhaps parties aren’t your thing. Maybe you have your grandchildren over for a visit while their parents are busy. You decide to be the “Cool, fun Grandma” and let them get out the paints. Soon enough you hear “Whhhaahhh Grandmaaa I made a messsss!” Just like in the example above you do a little damage control in the moment and try to deal with the stain later on.

DealDash is here to help, no matter what your situation or stain there are some ways to (hopefully) completely remove it, or at least make it much less noticeable. Here we have a list of some of the most common stains and the best ways to go about removing them.

Wine – Wine is notorious for staining the carpet. It’s fairly simple to treat if you deal with it immediately, though. Immediately put salt on the stain, then blot with club soda, then finish with a rinse of lukewarm water.

Blood/Coffee – Blood and coffee are removed in the same way. After blotting up the excess blot or spray with hydrogen peroxide then clean with a sponge and warm (dish)soapy water.

Gum – You can remove gum the same way that you can remove it from hair. Put ice on the gum long enough for it to become hard and semi-frozen, then peel it off.

Ketchup – Kids love ketchup and are messy, which is a bad combination for your carpet. Mix 1/2 a tablespoon of ammonia with 1/2 a cup of water and blot until gone. Finish up with a rinse of lukewarm water.

Wax – You can remove candle wax from your carpet by letting it dry, then placing a brown paper bag (like from a grocery store), and ironing the wax. If there is a lot of wax then you will have to repeat the process with fresh bags until the wax is removed.

If you are still having trouble with stains after trying these tips and tricks DealDash has a great spot and stain remover that’s made by Bissell, as well as a huge selection of vacuums made by various well-known brands.
