Did you know that if you pour white wine
on a red wine stain it will disappear instantly?
My daughter gave me a plush velour robe for
Christmas one year. I spilled red wine on it the
very same day (no i'm not a sloppy drunk lol...i
was just trying to open a bottle and it slipped).
I had just read about the wine stain remedy so
I tried it and it worked!! Don't ask me why.

haha, .40...very effective solution

buckytom...you get tomato sauce on
your ceiling?? Your wife must be a saint

andyM...instead of cleaning you remodel
your kitchen?? *shaking head*...men.

Preachin' to the choir. I wear a certain kind of shirt around the house and to sleep in, and they have major stains on the lower arms, and forget about getting my aprons clean anymore.

Are you pants ruined too ?

Pants are OK.

Couldn't care less about stains on an apron.

One question ... who's doing all the clean up after the kitchen is all a mess with grease and splatters?

I'm always telling my DH and sons, that if they had to clean up after themselves, they would never be as messy as they are.

We share kitchen duties, but didn't always do so. Dh used to ask if it was time to get the ice after I'd done everything else, then I'd clean up the mess also. After we retired, I do the cooking (he can only cook eggs) and he does the cleanup afterward. I do try to keep his cleanup to a minimum since he still doesn't do it as thoroughly as I do.

I'm totally responsible for the kitchen. I shop, prep, cook, clean, everything. When SO wants to bake, I let her use my kitchen and I clean up after her too. I also wash and dry my own kitchen towels and dish cloths.


I don't think I'd be more messy if SO did the clean up.

Andy, you have inspired me. I went on ebay and for a $2 or $3 limit, started searching for aprons; I am going to buy a few so I can bleach them, all together, in one load.

Alix, I owe you big time! We bought the Oxi stuff and SO tried it on my T-Shirt and it worked great. Thanks for letting us know about the stuff.

I actually made a list of all the recommendations and I'll use them as needed.

Thank you all for taking the time to offer help.

Glad to know it helped! We're a messy family so I am always looking for new stain removers.
