Why Do Those Pink Stains Keep Coming Back?

Pink StainTrying to figure out how to remove a stain can be a real chore.  You spend a fortune on brand new clothes, and sometimes they are stained after one wearing.  Throwing out those stained clothes is like throwing money in the trash.  You need to know how to remove a stain so you can save money and keep your family looking presentable.


There’s nothing worse than discovering that something red got mixed in with a load of whites, and now all of your clothes are pink.  So how do you get rid of those pink stains?  Well if the items that have been discolored were white to begin with, the solution is fairly easy.  Just wash them again with a cup of chlorine bleach.  Here are some other tips for getting some of those more difficult stains out.


  • If the items that have been stained were not completely white to start with, try washing them again with color-safe bleach.
  • When you need to know how to remove a stain, it’s important to know what is a stain.  Is it food, or grass, or grease?  The source makes all the difference when it comes to cleaning stain removal.
  • If your white shirts have perspiration stains under the arms, you don’t have to throw them out.  This is actually not the time to use bleach.  Instead soak them in plain white vinegar and water.  Then wash as usual.  The vinegar will remove the stains, and your shirt will be as good as new.
  • Ketchup is a common laundry culprit.  If you get a ketchup stain, rinse it with cold water as soon as possible.  Then apply a pre-treater.  Let it set for a few minutes, then rinse it and sponge it with white vinegar.  Repeat until the ketchup stain is gone.


With a few secret weapons like bleach, vinegar, and a good pre-treater, you can remove a stain and make your clothes last longer.
