No matter the season there is one thing you are certain to do in Florida and that's sweat!  Not only do we sweat from head to toe but it ruins many a nice shirt and blouses.  However there's a surprisingly easy trick for getting them out and it only requires four things. Dawn dish soap, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and a scrub brush or toothbrush are all you need to make your white tees, shirts and blouses as good as new. First, stir one part Dawn dish soap with two parts hydrogen peroxide. Apply it to the stain, and then sprinkle baking soda on top. Rub the mixture in with a scrub brush or toothbrush, covering the whole area. Let it sit for at least an hour launder the shirt as usual and voila, good as new! Ink stain ruin your pants? Try blotting hand sanitizer onto the stain and leaving it for 60 seconds before washing. The high alcohol content will cut through the grease and help remove it. For oil stains, blot it with a dry napkin before sprinkle it with baking soda, which will absorb the oil. Finally, brush the powder off and launder as usual. Other tricks include blotting lipstick stains with white bread, rubbing grass stains with salt and lemon juice, and using a combination of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide on stained baking trays. These hack may actually have you smiling while doing the laundry!
