Fake blood: It's made from corn syrup and red dye, which makes it a particularly terrible stain when it lands where it shouldn't be. Be careful when you apply it, especially if you place an open tube of the material on surfaces such as bathroom surfaces or wooden dressers. Rubbing with alcohol removes color stains from the fabric and hard surfaces. Quick action helps. Toothpaste without gel often works too.


Carefully scrape off as much chocolate as possible without rubbing the stain deeper into the fabric. Apply and wash stain remover. If necessary, wash again with bleaches that are true to fabric or color. If you have stubborn stains, dampen the stain and work with some rock Naptha Laundry Bar Soap and then sprinkle it with borax. Work in well. Wash as usual.

Revamp Spot Shot Instant Carpet Stain Remover is a good choice. Be sure to read the instructions on the can. Always test in an inconspicuous area before use.

Colored Halloween hair spray

Many of us won't wash out the hair color when we get home, which means that it will become one with your sheets and pillowcases.

To remove colored hairspray from washable fabrics, first rinse the stain with cold running water. Then apply a stain removal product and wash as usual. My Miracle Stain Remover is great, just like Zout Stain Remover or De-Solv-It Laundry Saver.

Having trouble removing color sprays from your hair? Simply add some baking soda to your shampoo and wash it several times.

Rotten pumpkin

A pumpkin sitting inside or outside on a hard surface will most likely leave a moldy black spot when it decomposes. You often only notice it when it's too late. To remove this contamination, dampen a microfiber cloth with warm water and a splash of white, non-gelled toothpaste and rub the stain in small circles until it rises. Once the stain is gone, you will likely need to polish the area. A warning: if the pumpkin has been sitting and watering for a long time, you may need to rework the wood.

Preventing the problem is easy. Place your pumpkin on a plate or other container to prevent wood or cement surfaces from being stained.


Glitter is so tempting and yet an absolute wreck of a substance when it comes to removing it from you and your home. Here's a list of things you might use to free your life from irrelevant glitter:

  • Fusselrollen
  • masking tape
  • painter's tape
  • baby wipes
  • Play-Doh
  • Silly putty
  • A handheld vacuum cleaner
  • A standard vacuum cleaner with a gap or hose attachment

Jell-O® shots

Pineapple is Jell-O's enemy. So when a Jell-O shot solidifies on a surface, it helps to pour a little pineapple juice on it to help clear up the mess. Remaining food stains can be treated with alcohol.
