When the clock strikes midnight, we’ve got tips to help you put your best foot forward as you step into the New Year.

Wardrobe Malfunctions

All night revelry can wreak havoc on the most well planned outfits. To keep things buttoned up, we recommend stocking your handbag with our On the Spot Kit.

There’s no fashion jam you can’t handle with this kit – from stains to static to wrinkles.

• Don’t let wrinkles crinkle your plans. Spritz the Crease Release and smooth out wrinkles using your hand.

• Do those New Year’s kiss nerves have you feeling not so fresh? Spray a little Fabric Fresh Classic for the ultimate clean laundry smell.

• We’ve got the answer to your static cling troubles! Spray the Static Solution between layers and gently pat away the static charge.

• Don’t stress any holiday mess. From spills to slush, the Wash & Stain Bar and the Stain Solution removes any stain – both old and new!

Tripped Up Toasts

The excitement of a clink, swirl, sip moment can also include a spill moment. In fact, this is one of the most common stain questions we hear, especially this time of year. While a red wine stain can send the most seasoned Laundress into panic mode, the truth is, the stain can be easily reversed with a powerful paste of Stain Solution and All-Purpose Bleach Alternative. 

How To Fix on Clothing

For cotton and durable synthetics, apply the Stain Solution to the affected area. Then, sprinkle All-Purpose Bleach Alternative on top and work it into a paste using our Stain Brush or your finger. Let the paste sit for 5 minutes. For added power, pour hot water from a height or tea kettle onto the stain. If the stain remains, soak the item for up to 30 minutes in a basin of hot water and 1 capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative. Repeat the process of necessary; otherwise, launder as normal.

How To Fix on Carpet or Upholstery

Using a Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth, soak up as much of the spill as possible by blotting gently. Next, wet a Wash & Stain Bar with warm water and create a lather. Apply directly to the affected area by rubbing gently to remove the stain. Once the stain is lifted, wet a Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth in warm water and dampen the area to remove the soap suds completely. Dry the area with a clean portion of the Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth until completely dry to avoid water marks later on. Finally, to freshen, generously sprinkle All-Purpose Bleach Alternative on the area and let sit for 10-15 minutes before vacuuming up the granules.
