    I use eye makeup remover on anything that’s not going to show the oil, or nail polish remover as my backup.

    I second skeeta25 – glycerin hand soap works magic! I’ve used it on everything from eye makeup that I’ve gotten on my clothes to red wine stains.

    Tide stick is my friend. I was a bridesmaid in a wedding in which the bride got a yellow stain in the middle of her dress. Tide stick saved the day and you never knew it was there.

    I don’t really have any cleaning advice. Especially with 4 weeks left to the big day, our apartment is beginning to look like black hole of out-of-town bag materials, bridal party gifts, programs, menus and lists of things to do. Also, the fact that we are still in the process of training a puppy- I am the last person to ask about a clean apartment! But I thought Id give this a try because A) I have never won any of the Brooklyn Bride freebie give-aways B) With 4 weeks left I am looking for anything with the words “free” attached C) We are getting married at Stage 6 and will be taking pictures in Dumbo before the ceremony and one of my biggest nightmares is getting my dress dirty in the process….So, from one Brooklyn Bride to the next, I would love the emergency kit-its one less thing I have to buy in the next 4 weeks and one less thing to worry about.

    I do love the Tide to go sticks though!!

    As a musician, I have to wear black all the time for work. I *always* end up with little (and big) deodorant stains, no matter what deodorant I use… it is so annoying! A colleague showed me that if you persistently rub the fabric against itself in the area where the stain is, it’ll go away!

    I’m a cleaning freak! My go to is Kaboom. I don’t know how great it is for the environment – but it does wonders! I got blue interior paint off a cream carpet after it was dry in my last apt. Just make sure the cat doesn’t try to lick it up… it smells pretty lethal. I’m also a big swiffer fan, love that.

    Great blog!

    Salt can be really helpful in absorbing brand new stains. It’s usually readily available when I stain my clothes- it soaks up a lot of the liquid. Just pour, let it set for a second, then blot, blot, blot!

    I didn’t read all the comments so I don’t know if anyone wrote this but I LOVE using club soda to get rid of stains. I once got a coffee stain on a white shirt…. I rubbed it with the club soda, washed it and it came right off.

  9. skim

    alcohol wipes and tide to go sticks. i never leave home without either of them!

  10. Hailey

    I absolutely swear by Tide-to-go sticks. They have helped me remove really old stains too.

  11. Alyce

    My mother swears by rubbing aspirin on yellow stains on white shirts.
    Who knew?

    I LOVE the Tide Stick, but seriously one of the best cleaning “tricks” is just soap and water and quick action! I’ve spilled sooo many things that came out completely because I ran to the bathroom to get soap and water! 🙂

  13. jane

    I put club soda on stains while I am out so they don’t set and can be removed when I get home!

  14. B

    I use dishwashing detergent to remove food stains from clothing. It’s formulated to remove grease from pans…why shouldn’t it work on clothes???


  15. Diana

    Tide pen for colored clothing and clorox bleach pen for whites…they do wonders!!!

  16. angelique

    I have one tide pen in my bathroom, one in the bedroom, one in my purse, one in my office cube…and one in my car. I’ve also made sure the fiance has one with him at all times. We LOVE the tide pen!

    One of my favorite cleaning tips is to use cheap vodka to get out smells. Even when you have things dry cleaned a smell will linger. That’s the point at which the vodka comes in really handy!

  18. Figuring Out The Details

    Hairspray for getting ink out!

  19. ¡Azúcar!

    I can’t tell you how many times good ‘ole hydrogen peroxide has come to my rescue! It works wonders on protein-based stains.

  20. Erin

    absolutely, positively lime seltzer water. it’s way better than original plain stuff. must be something extra in the acid. works every time, even on red wine stains!!!

  21. Kaylen

    Oh yes please! What a fantastic looking kit!

    The magic eraser, by Mr. Clean, is the best tool EVER invented. It makes everything easier and it’s reusable.

  22. EmilyS

    Shout Wipes, Shout Wipes! Those things are amazing. As well as White Wine to get out Red Wine!

  23. Lizzie

    Baby wipes! I always have them, because I have a toddler, and they are so great for all the sticky things toddlers get into. To avoid being wasteful I have them do double duty — I’ll wipe grubby hands and face then turn them over and wipe countertops, stroller trays, etc. They’re great for removing eye makeup, too! And I could really use a clean up kit since I’ll have my sweet messy baby with me all day on my wedding!
