Did you ever want a little book of stain removal tips to keep at hand in your laundry? Good news: Linda Cobb, the self-styled Queen of Clean®, has granted your wish. This pocket-size book draws from all the stain removal advice in Cobb's previous bestsellers, and now none of us will ever have to memorize the recipe for grease removal --- we can just look it up.
The book consists of three parts: a guide to stain removers; a section on cleaning different fabrics; and an A-to-Z spot and stain removal guide. Cobb's principles are simple: Not all stains are created equal (so treat an ink spot differently from a grease spot), and consider the fabric first (different fabrics deserve a different approach).
In her role as a stain stalker, Cobb has tried almost every product you can think of, so she can write knowledgeably about best uses of commercial products. She is also fond of secret stain removal products already in your cupboard, like baking soda, club soda, WD-40, salt, and shaving cream.
Cobb also offers homemade recipes for stain removers for washable fabrics. Here's her recipe for a Beverage, Fruit, and Grass Remover:
- Combine equal portions of:
- white vinegar
- dishwashing soap
- Shake well and work the solution into the spot. Let stand a few minutes and then launder as usual.
