If a detergent or one of those fancy brand name stain removers don't do their job, you could always use 100 ml of milk! If you don't have that either, use white wine - just as effective! (watch how to above)

Step 1: Soak the stain for at least 3 h

Depending on how fresh the wine stain is, soak the stain for at least three hours in milk!
milk fat and milk acid are chelating agents. makes sense. surprising no one's thought much of it before. brilliant.
Actually Sour Milk were use as &quot;bleaching&quot; agent for clothes before invent of Chlorine Bleach.<br /> I didn't know regular Milk has some effect on clothes as well.<br /> <br /> BTW, I make Kefir Milk(cultured). The whey from Kefir Milk acts like bleach. I have a shirt ruin by a spill. It's not as concentrated but it still changed spots on my dark blue shirt to light orange-brown.<br />
Thanks a lot. I didn't know at the moment how to scientifically explain the process but I have to thank you for the explanation.
Does this work with grape juice stains?
i seem to have some vague memory of some culture bleaching cloth by soaking it in milk, and letting it dry out in the sun.
I heard the Romans used urine to bleach their clothing white. Ammonia does wonders! :)
Yeah, that's why I always wet my pants...I'm cleaning them I swear!
wouldn't that turn it yellow? :)
Apparently not... the Gaulish also used it for those bright white teeth!
Brings a new meaning to 'piss head'!
Is this only for white clothing?
No, actually for darker colors clothes it's even better!
Nice! Who'd a thunk it!
what about normal stains?
I don't think it works on normal stains, as every stain has its own chemical composure
Great instructable. I love it. The point is I guess when you have a party always have red and white wine :D
I guess that's the idea...lol... Glad you like it
