Spot salad dressing or gravy on your clothes? Rub a little Vim dishwash gel on the stain and rinse with water. The soap is gentle enough for spot-treating most fabrics – even washable wool and silk.

To maintain your whites, rub Surf Excel liquid detergent directly on the underarm area and other sweat patches and let it sit for 15 minutes. Wash your whites separately from coloured clothing.

Use two parts of full-strength hydrogen peroxide with one part of dish soap to remove grass, wine, chocolate or armpit stains from garments. Allow the peroxide to sit for a few minutes. Then, dab at the stain with a clean cloth until it is lifted. Repeat the process if necessary. Wash the garment right away.

Festive clothes are not supposed to be washed frequently. So, keep this list handy to tackle stains right away.
