  1. Lemon Juice and Sunlight: Apply lemon juice to the stain, let it sit in the sunlight for a few hours, and then wash as usual.
  2. Baking Soda and Water: Mix baking soda with water, apply it to stains, wait for 30 minutes, then scrub and wash.
  3. White Vinegar: Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water, apply it to the stain, and let it sit for a few minutes before washing.
  4. Hydrogen Peroxide: Dab it on the stain, let it sit for a few minutes, and then wash and usual. For coloured fabrics, test a small, inconspicuous area first.
  5. Salt: Blot the stain with a paper towel to remove excess liquid, then cover the stain with salt. Let it sit for a few hours and wash.
  6. Cornflour: For oily stains, sprinkle on the stain and gently rub it in. Let it sit for 30 minutes then brush it off and wash.
  7. Club Soda: For lifting stains like ink or juice. Pour club soda directly onto the stain, blot with a clean cloth, repeat until the stain is gone, then wash the garment.
  8. Toothpaste: For stains, apply a small amount of the non-gel toothpaste to the stains, rub it, and wash.
  9. Milk: For ink stains, soak the stain in milk for several hours and wash.
  10. Soap Nuts: Saponins in soap nuts can effectively clean clothes by placing a few soup nuts in a cloth bag and toss them in with your laundry.
