Stains Update: Share Your Advice

Yesterday I wrote about efforts to remove yellow Easter candy dye stains from my favorite pair of white jeans. Today I’m happy to report after four washings, heavy doses of Shout, and gentle touches of bleach, the jeans are restored to pristine status.

Had my efforts failed, however, I had a back up plan. I received this advice from a reader and pass it on to you:

Mix some laundry detergent with white vinegar and rub on stain.  Let set – like over night.

Soak the stained area in white vinegar over night.


Do not dry.  Check stain. 


If you have helpful stain removing tips,  please share them in the comments. Stains of an unusual variety plague nurses regularly. We can use all the help we can get!
