Life's Little Messes
By Cathy Pearl

1     Life can be messy, and accidents happen all the time. It's easy to get stains on your clothes. It isn't always easy to get those stains out. There are some things you can do to save your favorite clothes.
2     One of the best tips to get rid of any stain is to take care of it right away. If you can, wash the stained item right after the stain happens. Check the stain before you put the clothing in the dryer. If the stain didn't come out, wash it again.
3     A lot of people get gum on their clothes. It's easy to do. People don't always throw their gum in the garbage. They leave it in places where people can step in it or even sit in it. If you get gum on your clothes, you should be able to get it out. The first thing you want to do is get the gum really cold. Take an ice cube and hold it over the gum until it is almost frozen. Then take a knife and scrape as much of the gum off the clothing as you can. Rub dish soap or liquid laundry detergent into the cloth where the gum was. Then wash the item in hot water. If that doesn't get the gum out, treat the spot with a stain remover. You may have to wash the clothing two or three times to get rid of the stain completely.
