  • Crayon on the Walls

 

If your little one draws crayon marks on the wall, you can remove the stain by putting a dry-cleaning solvent (perchloroethylene) on a terry cloth and then rubbing it over the dirty surface. It’s important to note that using this method on an antique wallpaper may ruin the wall. 

  • Ink/Marker on the Furniture

 

Your studious youngster might put ink or marker stains here and there, particularly on your favorite furniture. But there’s nothing to worry! You can easily remove these stains with the help of rubbing isopropyl alcohol. Just put some alcohol on a piece of cloth and gently scrub it over the ink stain until it’s gone. And if your little one shows his/her artistic skills using a marker, it can be removed by rubbing toothpaste on the stain with a circular motion. 

 

  • Food Stains on Clothes 

 

Without a doubt, kids are messy eaters. They stain everything they wear, which is why the laundry pile never seems to reduce.  So how can you remove these tough-to-treat food stains?

Soak the stained garment in a mixture of liquid laundry detergent and cold water. Machine-wash as per the directions on the label, preferably using warm water. If the food stain still remains, apply liquid detergent or any other stain remover to the stained area, then wash it again.

 

  • Greasy Stains

Greasy stains can be removed using talcum powder or cornstarch that helps to absorb excess oil. You can also apply dish soap or pretreatment spray to the stained area, and then wash the garment in hot water.

  • Mud

 

While your little one may love to splash in a puddle during rainy days, mud can leave tough stains on the garment. To easily clean the stain, you should first allow the mud to dry and then scrape off as much as you can. Then later, you can simply wash the mud stain using a pre-wash stain remover.

 

The above tips will help remove tough stains from any surface or clothing and will keep your kids' wardrobe in the best condition. The only thing you need to remember is to use gentle laundry products for washing delicate garments.
