No matter how hard we try to keep clean, stains happen to the best of us. They usually occur at the most inopportune time landing on some of our favorite tees, sweaters, and fashion god forbid, white dresses. That said, we compiled a list of tried and true easy stain fighting tips from designers, clothing care gurus, and fellow editors. Now if only we could look just as glamorous as Lily Donaldson and Gemma Ward, seen here in Vogue, while cleaning our clothes . . .
Oil stains (pizza, grease, sauce): Grab a white absorbent cloth and place under the stain. Create a solution with two tablespoons of dish wash soap, like Palmolive, and one tablespoon of white vinegar. Dab the stain lightly until it breaks down and passes through into cloth, and then flush with lukewarm water. — John Mahdessian, Madame Paulette
Deodorant stains: "Get rid of embarrassing deodorant stains on your clothes by rubbing the affected area with an old pair of pantyhose." — Chi Chau, FabSugar Associate Editor
