There are lots of ways to remove stains from clothes but today I want to tell you specifically how to get stains out that have already dried. Often times "older, dried-in stains" will make you get rid of clothes you love, but now you won't have to! To get stains out "[pre-treat] with a solution of 3 tablespoons white vinegar, 2 tablespoons liquid detergent and 1 liter warm water. Rub the solution into the stain, then blot it dry before washing." After pre-treating the stain wash as normal.
For oil-based stains such as lipstick, grease, butter, motor oil, cooking oil, and some pen inks, simply apply some Dawn dishwashing liquid directly to the stain and scrub with a small brush or toothbrush until the oil is removed, and then launder as usual.
