The Internet is full of contradictory information about how to get rid of stubborn stains on clothes or make old things look as good as new with one chemical or another. We at WeGoRo decided to test some of these ideas for ourselves, and we found that it doesn’t pay to blindly follow every life hack you read about online.
The stain does disappear but not completely. You could hardly claim that white wine in some way neutralizes red. All that you’re really doing here is diluting the concentration of the red wine on your sweater with the help of the white.
The fluff wins in this case. The pumice stone doesn’t remove it — it just acts like a comb. Only try this if you want to make the fluff on your top look tidier!
In this case, tights only remove what you could remove with the help of a simple paper towel. The white stains are still there.
Don’t even waste your time with this. The chances are the lipstick marks will not only remain on your clothing but seep further into the material, making them even harder to remove.
Who on Earth thought up this idea? However much you rub bread into it, that stain is not going to disappear.
Shaving foam works in a similar way to ordinary soap, but it doesn’t work any more effectively. It’s better to use detergent in this case.
The only thing that banana skin does here is give a temporary sheen to scratched shoes, but after they dry the shoes look just like they did before.
This peculiar idea only makes things worse.
The scratches won’t go anywhere, but the color of them changes and they become slightly less noticeable.
