I use table runners on my kitchen table all the time. I recently discovered some red wine stains on one of them, and you know the feeling of “Uhh Ohh!”
I had just been reading about the wonders of OxiClean Laundry Stain Remover, so I thought I would give it a try.
I sprayed the OxiClean directly on the stains and then ran the table runner through my washing machine using regular laundry detergent and a normal wash cycle.
And voila, the stains are gone!
I am not affiliated with OxiClean in any way. I’m just passing along the good news that it worked for me. Needless to say, I’ll be keeping a bottle of OxiClean in my laundry room as long as I’m keeping a bottle of red wine in my kitchen!
By the way, use caution whenever you launder a quilt. I typically don’t wash my quilts on a normal wash cycle with any old detergent. I like to use a delicate cycle and a gentle detergent, such as Quilt Care, that has no phosphates. I then put the quilt in my dryer just long enough to remove the excess moisture. I finish drying it flat on top of a bed.
If you have other remedies to any quilt-stain catastrophes, please leave a comment and share!
