Next time you spill some coffee on your favorite shirt, don’t panic. Stains of all kinds can be easily removed with products you probably already have at home.
Here are some of our favorite hacks:

OIL: Whether it’s lipstick or bacon grease, consider rubbing chalk powder into oil stains before throwing them in the laundry. The chalk will absorb the grease, making it easier to remove in the wash.
DEODORANT: Keep dryer sheets handy to lightly rub out any deodorant stains you may get on clothes. The dryer sheets will pick up the excess deodorant and won’t harm delicate fabrics in the process.
COFFEE: To get rid of those annoying coffee stains in mugs, just moisten a cloth and stick it in some baking soda. Gently rub the cloth on the stained china or cups, and then rinse off. Those coffee stains are as good as gone.
LIPSTICK: Cotton balls dipped in rubbing alcohol will get lipstick out of your clothes and fabrics. Dab at the stain repeatedly until it’s gone.
GREASE: If you have a grease stain on your clothes, all you need is a can of Coca-Cola. Pour the soda in your wash along with laundry detergent and run on a normal cycle.
