While at a dinner party you spill food on your favorite shirt. Dang. Moments like this are when you seriously consider buying a bib. How are you going to get that ugly stain out? Don’t panic. Removing stains from clothing is easy. We’ll tell you everything you need to know.
First sponge the area with white vinegar. If the stain remains, soak it with denatured alcohol. Then wash with detergent in the hottest water possible without causing harm to your skin.

Rinse the stain with more peroxide and rinse with warm water. Use latex or silicone gloves when removing stains.
Hydrogen peroxide works here, as well. However, if you can do so within two minutes of getting wine on your shirt, apply a thick layer of salt. This will absorb the wine and can be brushed off when the job is done.
