3 foolproof tricks to remove yellow stains from clothes

Yellow stains on clothes can be particularly difficult to deal with, as they tend to be more persistent and less receptive to conventional cleaning methods. These stains can be caused by a variety of factors, such as sweat, deodorant residue... Fortunately, there are foolproof tricks that can help you remove these yellow stains and restore your clothes to their original whiteness.

White vinegar

Another effective method we can use to remove yellow stains on white clothes is white vinegar, an ingredient that you probably have at home. Simply mix 3 portions of warm water (same amount) and white vinegar. Then, we immerse the garment in the mixture, leave it to act for 30 minutes, and wash the garment as we usually do.



Finally, if the stain does not go away, we recommend you to use the lemon trick to make the yellow stains disappear completely.

Makeup is an essential part of many people's daily routine, but it can be problematic when it accidentally stains clothing. From foundation stains on shirt collars to lipstick stains on shirt collars, each type of makeup presents its own unique challenges when it comes to stain removal.

Normally, stains usually come out in the washing machine, but if you're having trouble with them, here are some quick and effective solutions to make makeup stains disappear completely.


Make-up remover

Although it may seem obvious, we don't usually resort to this solution. It's one of the easiest ways to remove make-up stains when you're out from home. You'll need to dab on the makeup remover - no rubbing, which will only cause the stain to spread. You can find the make-up remover in our Primor shop in La Torre Outlet.


Degreasing soap

Another solution to remove make-up stains is to use degreasing soap (dishwashing soap with an anti-grease effect). Pour several drops of this soap on the stain and leave it to act for about 15 minutes. After this time, rub in a circular motion with a cloth, and then absorb the stain with kitchen paper. Then wash the garment as you usually wash it. You can find this product and more for cleaning clothes in our Pepco shop.


Baking soda

Finally, to get rid of these stains, we will use our greatest ally, baking soda. You should prepare a mixture of baking soda and water and let the mixture sit on the stain.

After leaving it for several hours, wash your garment as you normally do and... it will be as good as new!
