There is nothing worse than just getting a fresh shirt out of the laundry and then spilling something on yourself. The same feeling applies to your nice clean carpets. The good news is that instead of running to the dry cleaners or tossing your piece of clothing in the trash, thereís a few different household cleaners that actually remove stains quite well. Youíll have your clothes back to a like-new condition in no time. Just take a look at these common stains and their simple removal solutions below for a complete stain kit.


Red Wine Stains


A glass of red wine can be highly enjoyable. A red wine stain is not so great. To get out a red wine stain youíll need the following:


  • Vinegar
  • Eyedropper
  • Salt


First, you should cover the stain with salt. Then, pour boiling hot water over the stain. Use vinegar in an eyedropper to apply to any of the remaining stain on the clothing or carpet. Let sit. Then, launder or wash the affected material.          


Coffee Or Tea Stains


To remove coffee and tea stains, youíll need:


  • Stain remover or bleach
  • Cold water


Getting out a coffee stain is actually a bit simpler than you may have thought. First, you should treat the stain with a stain remover stick or bleach. Be careful with these items on certain materials. Youíll want to check for colorfastness to make sure that you donít completely ruin any material using these chemicals. Once you treat the stain, leave the item to soak with cold water for at least 30 minutes. Then, pre-treat the stain again if it still remains before you launder it. Your carpet should be thoroughly washed out as well. You should avoid using bleach on carpets to avoid further staining in case it is a sensitive material.    


Grease Stains


To remove grease stains, youíll need just a couple of simple items:


  • Dish soap
  • Hot water


Treat the grease stain with some dish soap, and let it sit for a few minutes. Youíll then want to launder the item in hot water in order to finish getting the stain out. 


Juice Stains


To treat juice stains, youíll need:


  • Vinegar
  • Cold water


Let the stain soak in cold water. Then, apply vinegar to the stain. Let the vinegar sit and work its way through the stain, making magic happen. Then, launder the items that have been stained. They should come back like new! 


Chocolate Stains


Getting out a chocolate stain is also fairly simple. First, you should scrape any remaining chocolate off of the item that has been stained. Next, apply some stain remover to the affected area. Finally, just wash and rinse the item or affected area and let dry.


Stain removal isnít too much of a headache when you have these common items around the house!

If youíre looking to save more energy and money around your home, perhaps one of the first places that you should look is your plugs. Take a look around your rooms and see what outlets are being used. If every outlet is full of plugs, you may have some adjustments to make. 


There are so many things in our homes that require plugs including TVís, microwaves, toasters, clocks, refrigerators, phone chargers, and more. 


Anything that is always plugged in actually adds to your electric bill whether youíre using it or not. This is known as phantom power usage. Even when a device isnít turned on, itís still using energy.


You donít want to go around your home and unplug everything, only to plug it back in when you need to use it. Use this handy guide to discover what you should unplug and what you can leave plugged in your home in order to save some energy and some money. 


What To Unplug


Small Appliances


Large appliances in your kitchen would be impractical to constantly plug in and unplug. Smaller appliances, however, are much easier to manage. These include toasters, coffee makers, food processors, and microwaves. The small digital clocks on many of these devices, for example, are constantly using energy. Do you really need the function? If you donít need to know the time, you should just unplug it and save your home some energy usage. 


Chargers


We need to charge just about all of our devices including laptops, iPads, phones, and even electric toothbrushes. these items donít need to be plugged in all the time. Once a device is charged fully, be sure to unplug it. Itís only wasting energy otherwise!  


Computers


Unplug your computer each and every night. Screen savers and sleep modes donít actually save much power from being used while your computer is plugged in. Itís a good idea to keep your computer unplugged for safety reasons as well. A strike of lighting hitting, for example, can cause your entire system to fry.


Keep These Items Plugged In


There are certain items that you can leave plugged in at your home without worry. These items include:


  • Power strips
  • Nondigital items
  • Items without clock or LCD displays




Power strips are particularly useful for items like entertainment centers and computer setups. Flipping the switch to the off position on the power strip helps to stop the phantom power usage. The convenient thing is that you wonít need to plug and unplug everything in individually, and youíll still save power. 


Saving energy and money is easy when you have the right strategies put in place.
