Blackberry Syrup stain on the carpet

Laundry DivasI accidently spilled Blackberry Syrup on my carpet today, and thought I’d try our Diva Stain Stick to get it out~ and voila! It worked! I even took pictures, however, my computer is testing me and not so interested in uploading them. I will post them as soon as it will allow me.
First, I blotted the stain with a paper towel and got up as much of the syrup as possible. Then I rubbed on the Diva Stain Stick, and worked it in with my fingernail. After letting it sit for a couple of minutes, I rinsed it with a cold, wet cloth. Voila! Blackberry Syrup stain had vanished!

Removing Black Mould

Spray mould stain with a mixture of vinegar and water (2 parts vinegar: 1 part water), and work it in with a scrubber. Let sit for 20 minutes or so. Then put your item into the washing machine with 3 cups of vinegar; turn your machine on with a cold water setting; allow it to fill, but turn the machine off to soak your stain for a couple of hours. Then, put in your Diva Laundry Balls and wash as usual! This should remove the stubborn stain and the smell that accompanies it.

Permanent Marker stains

So they say it’s called Permanent Marker for a reason! In some bizarre coincidance, all of my 5 children recieved permanent markers in at least one of their Christmas gifts. And they have since managed to get it on the carpet, as well as their clothes. What to do? My research has proven that there is only one acceptable solution- Isopropyl Alcohol. Be sure to put a clean, dry cloth under the garment, and with another clean cloth blot repeatedly with the alcohol until the stain is removed as much as possible (Make sure to to test in an inconspicuous part of the garment first for colour fastness). Then wash in lukewarm water. You need to be prepared that some of this stain may still remain, this is not uncommon. Good luck!

The Christmas eggnog spill on your favourite sweater…….

…….dab away excess eggnog. Then soak the stain in cold water. Hot water will only cook it into the fabric.
Rub with a paste of dishwashing soap, water and a few drops of ammonia. Rinse with cold water; pour yourself another glass. (Be sure to get out all of the eggnog before ever using the dryer!)
