How to #UnstainYourStyle:

1) Working from the reverse side of the stain, flush with cool water and pre-treat with a liquid laundry detergent; pat down stain with repeated light strokes and let stand for several minutes.
2) Rinse well with water and then sponge with white vinegar.
3) Rinse again with water and then repeat steps 1 to 2 until you have removed as much stain as possible.
4) Treat with a prewash stain remover and then wash as directed by the care instructions.

The Holiday: Strawberry Ice Cream Day
The Date: January 15

The Holiday: National Cheese Lover’s Day
The Date: January 20

How to #UnstainYourStyle:

1) Gently rub any soap you can find (dish, bar or hand) and a few drops of COLD water into the stain. Scratch it with your fingernail for 20-30 seconds or until the stain disappears.
2) If the stain didn’t disappear, before washing, rub detergent directly onto what’s left of the stain and pre-soak in cold water.
3) If the stain isn't completely out, don’t put the item in the dryer. Otherwise the stain will set permanently.

How to #UnstainYourStyle:

1) Rinse the stained area with cold water.
2) Prepare a solution of ½ the typical amount of liquid detergent with bleach, such as Tide Plus Bleach® per gallon of water (be sure the care label does not warn against the use of chlorine bleach) and soak the garment for 30 minutes. Make sure the garment is fully submerged in the solution by using a white towel to weigh it down.
3) Wash in warm water in a normal wash cycle with fresh water and detergent. Air dry. If necessary, repeat the procedure.
4) If the stained item is dyed, or if the care label warms against the use of chlorine bleach, use a liquid detergent with a bleach alternative or separate nonchlorine bleach.

So let loose, and celebrate your favorite food without having to wear it. Cotton clothing is breathable, natural, and easy to care for, saving you money and keeping you looking your best.
