Stains and Fixes
It is a fact that stains cleaning may happen to be a real challenge even for the most-experienced housewives, because there are some persistent stains that are really hard to be removed. Orange and tomato juice stains, red wine stains, coffee and tee stains, chocolate stains – you name it. The list is long and no matter what they say in those commercials, there is neither a magic formula to help you deal with the toughest stains to clean, nor there is a detergent that acts like a magic wand.
