Not sure about you guys but I am ALWAYS looking out for helpful hints and tips to make my life, home and homeschooling ventures a little smoother. I thought it would be a great idea to share some of the things I have learned with you all. My first tip taht I want to share is very practical, especailly if you have little ones running around. And they love blueberries!
Ever had blueberry stains on clothing? I just bought this adorable little Tiger & Pooh outfit for Little Boy Blue and next thing I know it is covered in blueberries. I know, what was I thinking, right? Guess I wasn't thinking at the moment.
I knew that if I washed it, the blueberries would likely set and the shirt would have to continue it's life as a rag. I happened to be out of stain remover and I am not the kind of gal that loads up four kids to go to the store for Shout. So, what is a girl to do? Google, of course!
After reading several suggestions, I picked the craziest one and decided that it really couldn't get any worse at this point. I put on a pan of water and waited for it to boil. I laid the now blueberry colored tee shirt in the sink and waited.
Once the water was at a boil I took it and slowly started to pour it on the stain. At first it didn't look like much, but I repeat the process 3 times and Viola! The stain came completely out. Didn't cost a dime, other than the water. No chemicals, which is a big whoo hoo for me!
So if you are ever fortunant enough to encounter one of these lovely stains, give it a try!
If any of you have a tip you would like to share please do so in the comments. Thanks!
