Way back before Marty became disabled, he worked at Walmart in the maintenance department.  He got to fix the broken waxing machines or the heating system or anything else that happened to break overnight.  It wasn’t unusual for him to come home from work with stains on his work shirts.  Since Walmart wasn’t supplying work uniforms, I needed to make them last as long as I could.

Here are a few suggestions you can use to get stains out of your work apparel naturally.  I don’t buy laundry additives.

Sweat Stains – Make a paste out of vinegar, water and baking soda and apply it to the stain.  Let it sit for 30 minutes before washing in cold water & laundry soap.

Grease/Oil Stains – Use rubbing alcohol to remove grease or oil stains from your work shirts.  Just dampen the whole area and try to blot out as much of the stain as possible.  Then launder normally.

Ink stains – You can use regular toothpaste (not gel toothpaste or with anything funky in it) to remove ink stains.  Just rub it on gently, let it sit for a few minutes and rinse out under cold water.  Launder your work shirts normally.

Blood Stains – Pretreat the stain with hydrogen peroxide.  Let it soak for a while and then launder as normal.

As with any stain treatment, test a small corner of the fabric to make sure the stain removal won’t damage the color of your work apparel.  I’ve only used these on sturdier fabrics like t-shirts and jeans.  If your hubby wears expensive silk suits to work, I don’t recommend you try these 🙂

Do you have any sure fire ways to remove stains that I’ve missed?
