If your clothes have oil stains on them even after washing, you can easily fix it by taking a small piece of cardboard and placing it on the other side of the garment (where the oil stain is) and spray WD-40. Over the wet area, apply some baking soda (more is less) and rub it in with a toothbrush for a few minutes. Dust off the excess baking soda and repeat. Dust the excess off once again, pour some Dawn dish soap on the stain, and toss your clothing in the washer.
De-wrinkle sprays are the new ironing, yes you heard that right. If you’re in a hurry and don’t have time, just make this and store for emergencies. You need 1 tsp conditioner, 1 tbsp white vinegar, and 2 cups of water. Take a spray bottle and pour these ingredients, shake it well, and put it in a mist setting. Spray the wrinkled areas of your clothes, lay it down and let it dry for a little bit while you get ready, and well by the time you’re done your clothes will be wrinkle-free.
