Recently, I managed to get brake fluid on a pair of grey leggings. It broke my heart thinking that I would never be able to wear them, again, as I kept looking at the stains that mocked my favorite pants.
I tried using water to dilute the spots, but that didn’t seem to tame the stains. I was desperate to try something new.
Now, don’t ask me why I thought to do the thing I ended up doing. I cannot even recall if another tip triggered the idea or if I was just being weird (because that is entirely possible).
I found a clean, white wash rag and spat on it and used it to rub out the spots. Saliva. On a clean rag.
It took about 15 minutes of manual labor, but saliva did get the stains out and I was able to save my leggings, with no visible evidence that the spots were ever there.
Now, I probably won’t spit on your laundry, but I will do whatever it takes to find and get rid of a troublesome stains I find on your clothes.
