I spend a lot of time in my kitchen and absolutely love cooking and entertaining. I have a cream kitchen with lots of white and cream tea towels, napkins and tablecloths. Keeping these clean and stain free is an absolute nightmare. I find the most common culprits are red wine, tomato sauce, curry, berries, grease, coffee and tea stains. Some spices like turmeric are amongst the worst offenders. Other type of stains such as mud, grass and oil stains are also very common on cloths and are notoriously difficult to remove.

How to Tackle Stains?

One of the things I have learnt is not to leave a stain to dry, but to act immediately. Dabbing, washing and soaking are the effective ways to remove stains.

What household products can you use to remove stains?

Some household items that are good for removing stains are white vinegar, baking soda, salt, toothpaste, cold water, detergent and washing up liquid.

If you can’t remove stains at home, what can you do?

If household stain removal doesn't work, then the next best thing is to send your cloths to a laundry service, such as  Laundryheap. Laundryheap take the stress out of doing your laundry and dry cleaning. Not only do they tackle stains but they also offer  dry cleaning and ironing services. 

How does a Laundryheap work?

The collection is easy to organise via their mobile app or web site. Laundryheap is an excellent service, offering same-day collection and 24-hour deliver. You can track your parcel in real time and receive updates and status notifications.

Using  Laundryheap certainly takes the stress out of doing the laundry at home. It saves time, energy and guarantees that your clothing is laundered to the highest standard. Plus, your laundry will be delivered contactless, straight to your door.   

If you have not used this type of service before, why not check it out. It certainly makes life a lot easier and you can use your saved time relaxing or even catching up on pending tasks.
