RL Tips:

  • Ditch the bleach. Avoid using potent solutions as it could react with the bacteria in the stain and thin out the fabric. 
  • Did you know that the sun can have a natural bleaching effect? If you can, air dry your clothes outside to help get the stains out permanently. 
  • If you have the time, wash stained clothes immediately—especially workout garments as these are susceptible to staining quickly. Try not to let it sit for long for easy stain removal.
