12. Removing stains from delicates

Remove set and new stains from delicates using a solution of salt and lemon juice. Gently rub with soft cloth (like microfiber) or your finger and rinse with very hot water. Never rub the garment harshly or with a rough cloth. Allow it to dry in the sun. If the stain has not been removed, attempt to soak the item in 2 parts warm water, 1 part detergent and 1 part oxygen bleaching agent. Wash it as recommended per the garment instructions.
