Do It yourself stain removal for those stains that don’t come out easy

Standard

There are some stains that just seem to love to stick to our clothing not matter what we do. Here are some tips on removing some of the most frustrating stains like deodorant, ink, and blood stains from your clothes.

Deodorant Stains:
The first thing you’re going to need to do get white vinegar and a toothbrush to tackle the stain.
Steps to remove the stain:
1. Turn the problematic garment inside out.
2. Pour white vinegar directly onto the stained area and let it set for about 60 seconds so it can completely seep into the stain.
3. Use a toothbrush to lightly scrub the stained area, and then allow it to sit overnight.
4. Wash the garment normally in the washer.

My lint filter seems to build up faster than most

Standard

Even if you clear your lint filter in between each wash, lint can still be building up in your clothing dryer from lint escaping through small gaps around the dryer drum. A simple do it yourself way to help solve this problem is cleaning out your exhaust duct and the inside of your dryer.

Steps to clean the exhaust duct   

  1. First of you are going to need to shut off the gas, unplug the dryer, and pull the dryer away from the wall.
  2. Disconnect the duct from the dryer.
  3. Use a vacuum of a duster to remove all of the lint, if you notice your duct is the plastic type you will want to replace it with a rigid metal duct.
