Stain solutions!

You are dressed in your best and are out for the night with your loved ones.  Everything is perfect until your wine glass tips over, you drop salsa on your white blouse.  You come back home and light the candles, you are sitting in front of the fire with your significant other.  The world is perfect.  The next morning you wake up only to find that perfect candle lit moment caused candle wax to spill out of the holder onto your favorite tablecloth.

Okay, Life can’t always be perfect.  But there is never problems.  Only solutions.  Here is a few tips for some of those not so perfect moments!


Candle wax on tablecloth:  Remove table cloth and put it in your freezer (this is for hot wax) when wax hardens put it off or chip it away with a butter knife.  If there is residue or dye left use a spot remover and put in laundry.  If tablecloth is not washable this might require a drycleaner. 


Water Ring on coffee table:  1. place a towel over stain and blot to remove moisture. 2.  When it’s dry use a spatula of fat free mayonnaise.  Leave this on over night.  3. next day wipe mayo off with a clean cloth.  Try and do this early on with water marks… Sometimes after so long it just won’t work Sad smile
