It happens at least once during the holiday season – a big, colorful mess takes place during the most inconvenient time or location. The animated guest who talks with his hands and connects with your glass of red wine – and your new cream-colored lace top. The squabbling nephews who turn a previously pristine tablecloth into a kaleidoscope of colors – and you find it hours later buried under a pile of napkins. Before you know it, you find yourself stepping back from holiday festivities to mop up a big mess, and deal with the after-effects of an unexpected stain.
But Kari Byron and the team from American Express’ Everyday Genius came up big this holiday season with a terrific and timely life hack – “How to Get Stains Out.” One view of this YouTube video, and you’ll stand ready to combat whatever comes your way – or onto your clothing or table linens. Best of all, these stain-removal ingredients are pantry staples, so there’s no running around trying to source unfamiliar products.
Depending on your family’s spill track record, it may even make sense to have a batch mixed up and ready to go. Now that’s party planning!
Now that we have stain removal down, here’s a celebratory “Holiday Baubles” recipe from wineglass maker Lolita:
