How to whiten curtains and tablecloths

The end of December is not only a period of preparation for the holidays, but also a time for general cleaning. Instead of chemical bleaches, it's better to choose natural and environmentally friendly products that are available in almost every kitchen.

With the help of affordable and effective ingredients, you can quickly remove even old stains on curtains and tablecloths. The details were revealed by Kobieta Interia.

An effective life hack

Chemical bleaches are undoubtedly effective, but they can also cause great harm. If used improperly, they can sometimes lead to tissue damage or irreversible discoloration.

Baking soda works in the same way as bleach, with the difference being that it is a completely natural and environmentally friendly product. This white powder will help to remove stains and restore whiteness to gray things. If you want to refresh curtains, tablecloths or sheets, be sure to add baking soda. One teaspoon will be enough for a wash cycle.

How to remove dried stains from a tablecloth

Twelve meatless dishes are usually prepared for Christmas Eve, and during dinner, stains from beets, borscht, and soup may appear on the tablecloth. These foods are usually difficult to remove from the fibers.

Experts say that baking soda will come in handy again.

  • Step 1. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 3 tablespoons of water.
  • Step 2. Apply the mixture to the stain and gently rub it into the fabric with a damp cloth.
  • Step 3. Leave the baking soda for about an hour to absorb, then put the tablecloth in the washing machine and turn on the normal washing cycle.

By the way, vinegar or citric acid can also easily remove many stains and is completely safe. Acetic acid acts as a solvent, breaking down the components of the most difficult stains. It helps to break the chemical bonds, weakening the grip on the fibers. Vinegar quickly neutralizes alkaline substances.
