After everyone has left and you have a few days to breathe - is when you find the little accidents that happened during your Thanksgiving celebration. I got a desperate call from Sally in the Berkshires, who found a large grease stain on her fabric chair.
What's the secret ingredient? It's rubbing alcohol! Alcohol breaks down the grease. You can try it on clothes and furniture. I even suggested it to a mom with a crayon stain on her couch. Just make sure you try it in a hidden place in case it may change the color of the fabric.
Sally called back after two applications: "It seems to be working, but I can still see the stain."
Me: "If it's working, lets keep going. You'll have to be patient, but it should come out."
Simple things can work! It just takes some patience.
