Tip of The Week

White Chalk

“I tell people to keep a piece of white chalk in the laundry room to rub on grease stains and absorb the oil. Launder as usual and the piece should come out clean,” says Becky Rapinchuk, creator of . This should do the trick on butter, salad dressing, cooking oil, and more. No chalk on hand, but need an immediate solution? Break out the cornstarch from your baking caddy or talcum powder from the medicine cabinet and sprinkle it over the stain, let sit for for 10 minutes to soak up the oil, and wash.

Tip Of The Week

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers

“The easiest way to clean coffee stains from the inside of your mug? Just wet a and wipe them away,” says Donna Smallin Kuper. Everyone’s favorite cleaning sponge is made of melamine foam, which acts as a gentle abrasive to agitate stuck on stains like these (we suggest washing the mug before using again). Got a coffee stain on your shirt? Stretch the fabric over a bowl and carefully pour boiling water over the spot from about a foot above. The pressure of the hot water should flush the stain from the fabric. Launder as usual.
