  • For fresh stains: Plain club soda is an instant spot remover and it is fantastic. Pour a little on the spot, let it set for a few seconds and sponge up thoroughly.
  • For older stains: Combine 2 tablespoons detergent, 3 tablespoons vinegar and 1 quart of warm water. Work into stain and blot as dry as possible.
  • Tide is the best stain remover for stubborn spots: Make a sudsy solution of Tide laundry detergent and warm water. Brush the suds into the stain vertically and horizontally with a soft brush. Blot up excess. If the stain persists, repeat process. This works 9¾ times out of 10.
  • The last step is important too!
  • After you’ve completed one of the above methods, cover the spot with a clean towel and place a heavy book on top of it. When the towel becomes damp replace it with a dry one.
