Heloise's website, Heloise.com, offers tips for removing stains from clothing, tablecloths and other household fabrics. Many of her books also cover the topic. One, "Heloise Conquers Stinks and Stains," focuses on stain removal advice.
Heloise gives advice to combat many common stains, such as red wine, grass and makeup. She also addresses how to remove mildew, candle wax and food from fabric. Many of her stain-removal instructions suggest using white vinegar or mild dish soap to treat the stained spot, then washing the item by hand or in the washing machine. She also often recommends pre-treating the spot with laundry detergent before washing.
