10 Quick Tips for Removing Stains from Clothing

Lipstick Stains

If you've been kissing too much on your sweetheart's collar, we've got just the laundry trick for you! To remove lipstick from dark fabrics, grab a piece of white bread and remove the crust. You don't have to forgo a sandwich; you can use the heel of the loaf -- no one likes that piece anyway. Wad up the soft center and rub it gently on the stain until it picks up all of the lipstick. Sweep away any leftover crumbs with a clean, soft-bristled brush.

If this seems all too easy, put on your best shade and kiss away; after you go through a whole loaf (and all your dark clothes), you'll see that it really does work!
