This Chart Will Change Your Life If You're A Messy Eater

Because if you don't have a stain on your shirt right now, chances are you will soon.

When you’re removing stains, there are two key things to keep in mind: Try to treat the stain as quickly as possible, and whatever you do, don’t wash and dry the item before treating the stain or else it’ll set into the garment.

First, run cold water through the back of the stain. This way, the water will run out the fabric the way it came in to avoid spreading.

Mix clear laundry detergent with a bit of cold water, and set onto the stain. Let sit for three to five minutes.

Place the item in a tub of cold water and rub the stain with your fingers.

Let the item soak for 30 minutes and voilà! No more coffee stain.

First, scrape the excess ketchup off gently with a butter knife.

Cover the stain in a thin layer of clear dish soap.

On top of the dish soap, pour an equal amount of white vinegar.

Soak the stain in cold water (or run it underneath a faucet and rub the stain out with your fingers).

Place a sheet of paper towel on a table and lay the stain on top of it.

Next, sprinkle baking soda on top of the stain so that it's completely covered.

Pour club soda on top of the baking soda so that it creates a nice bubbly concoction.

Rub the mixture together and rinse the stain out with cold water.

Sprinkle corn starch on top of the stain.

Once the stain is covered, let the powder sit for 30 minutes.

Brush the powder off gently with a clean toothbrush.

Next, spray the stain with commercial stain treatment.

Place the garment into the washing machine and wash as directed on the label. See ya later, grease!

Lay a few sheets of paper towel on a table and set the stain on top of them.

Next, cover the entire stain with milk and let sit for about five minutes.

Place the stain in a tub of cold water and rub the stain out with your fingers.

Next, wring out the water from the garment and pour about a tablespoon of clear liquid laundry detergent (or 2 tablespoons if the stain is bigger) onto the stain.

Rub the stain out with your fingers and rinse off with clean water. That's it!

First, scrape off the excess peanut butter with a butter knife.

Next, cover the stain with a thin layer of clear dish soap.

Soak the item in warm water (if the clothing label permits it, otherwise cold is fine) and rub the stain out with your fingers.

When you're done working the stain out, refill a plastic tub with clean water and let it soak for at least an hour.

Blot the stain first with a paper towel to absorb any excess sauce.

Next, saturate the stain with white vinegar and use a cotton swab to work the vinegar into the stain.

Pour about a tablespoon of clear liquid laundry detergent onto the stain.

Finally, rub the stain out with your fingers in a tub of cold water and rinse clean under a faucet.

This one's a breeze. First, scrape the jelly off with a butter knife.

Then, lay the item flat over a plastic tub, stain-side up.

Next, pour a pot of boiling water about a foot away from the stain and watch as it magically disappears! (Just be sure to keep your distance from the water so you don't burn yourself.)

*Note: If the label on the item of clothing directs you to wash it in cold water, skip the boiling-water trick and instead create a mixture of white vinegar and dish soap, then gently rub into the stain. Wash as directed when you're done.

Fold the item of clothing so that the gum is facing outwards and place it inside a freezer bag.

Place the bag into the freezer and let sit for several hours.

After the gum is frozen solid, scrape it off with a butter knife.

Cover the stain in a thin layer of clear dish soap.

Next, pour some white vinegar on top of the dish soap.

Rub the mixture into the stain thoroughly.

Finally, rinse the stain out by either soaking it in cold water or running it under the faucet.

See, laundry isn't so bad, is it?
