Lemon juice removes old stains from clothes

You can easily remove old stains from clothes with the help of lemon juice. Lemon juice is especially good for light fabrics. Apply some lemon juice on the stain and hang out your clothes to the direct sunlight. Direct sunlight boosts bleaching action.The UV rays help the citric acid in the lemon juice to enhance the stain removal. Then wash the clothes as usual.

Let’s make an experiment. Take an item with an old stain.

 

 

 

 

 

Apply some lemon juice on the stain. We used concentrated lemon juice for baking. Rub the stain softly with a brush or an old toothbrush.

 

 

 

 

Hang out your clothes on the direct sunlight for 20-25 minutes. Be sure that the sunlight hits the stain directly.

 

 

 

 

Then wash as usual and dry.

It works!

Fresh stains can be removed more easily than old ones. Treat stains as soon as possible. Most stains are removed by dissolving them with a solvent. Here are some tips how to remove stains using natural cleaners.

  • Turn colored and white laundry inside out before hanging, and avoid direct sunlight, hang in shaded area.
  • Read labels. Do not dry pullovers and shirts if the care label says “dry flat” on the clothesline.
  • Clothesline drying saves money and is energy efficient. You can save up to $80 per year.
