MUSTARD
Is the most dreaded of stain causing condiments especially classic yellow mustard because one of its ingredients is turmeric and well turmeric is a pesky foe when it comes to stain removal but strangely enough salt and lemon juice has proven itself to be a worthy adversary against this yellow marauder.

1. Use a spoon or butter knife to remove the excess condiment matter up and away from the fabric.

2. Rinse with cold running water from the back of the shirt directly behind the stain so as to rinse the stain away from the fabric.

3. Apply detergent or stain remover over the stain. Use a commercial stain remover if you have one, as long as it does not contain ammonia. Liquid laundry detergent is a fine alternative, as is simply rubbing the stain with bar soap. Use caution while rubbing to avoid spreading the stain further.

  • Ammonia reacts with turmeric, the ingredient in mustard that makes it yellow, and may make the color set further.[2] Check the ingredients of commercial cleaning products first to help you avoid using ammonia-based products.
  • If you are not sure whether your clothing item can be washed, rub the detergent in an inconspicuous corner first, then rinse out. If the color or texture of the fabric is affected, you may wish to use a different method.

4. If shirt is white you can add bleach to your washing machine. If the clothing is another color use a color safe bleach on these materials.

5. Wash white cotton in hot water, and delicate clothing in warm or cold. The hotter the water is, the more effective it will be at removing stains. Hot water may damage fabrics that are more delicate, it can also cause lighter colored clothing to fade and stain other items in the wash machine. Check the tag of the clothing item to find the maximum temperature that it can be safely washed.

6.  Examine the stain before continuing. Do not place your item in a dryer or on a drying rack until you are sure the stain is gone.

BARBECUE1. Working from the back of the stain, flush with cold water.

4. Sponge the stain with white vinegar, and rinse well.

5. Repeat Steps 2 to 4 until you have removed as much of the stain as possible.
