After the Thanksgiving meal – the “411” on stains – from the Yarn Guy

After the Thanksgiving meal is over, there is always the inevitable “ton” of leftovers that need to be packed up and put away before the day is complete. Of course, some leftovers go home with you in plastic bowls. Others will travel home with you on foam plates covered with plastic wrap or foil. That being said, the leftovers I want to focus on are those that will travel home with you on your favorite knit or crochet keepsake. Dare I say it, “stains!??

With a little bit of knowledge and care, we can all be experienced stain fighters, the “Yarn Guy” included. Now I know there are many, many ways to remove stains – traditions passed from grandmom to mom, mom to daughter or son, and so on.  I think it would be really awesome to read some of your more interesting and/or anecdotal stain removal techniques, so we can share them with our “redheart.com family.” Thanks in advance for sharing your stain-fighting secrets!

If you want to learn more about what the experts say when it comes to removing unwanted leftovers and stains, here are a few places I would recommend for you to visit:

You can also take stain-fighting know-how on the road with you. Tide offers their free “Tide Stain Brain” application on the Apple App Store for iPods, iPhones and iPads.  There is also an Android version of the application available for the many Android-based devices now available.

Best wishes to you and all your loved ones as the holiday season begins!

Happy Thanksgiving and “Happy Stain Fighting” from the Yarn Guy . . .
