Yay!  The holidays are here, so let the entertaining begin!  As we approach the busy holiday season, our schedules quickly fill up with dinner parties and other festive gatherings.  With the parties and gatherings come the cooking, eating and entertaining, and more importantly, the potential of stains.  From spilled wine on the tablecloth to wearing pumpkin pie on your new blouse, we find ourselves treating all sorts of stains this time of the year.  No worries because Whirlpool is here to make the holidays easier!  Here are some awesome tips from Whirlpool specifically for the Holidays!

Whirlpool’s Tips for the Holidays

– If you haven’t used your holiday dishes since last year, take advantage of the rinse cycle on your dishwasher to refresh your holiday dishes once they have been pulled out of storage.

– Wax drip on your candle holders? In order to remove the wax, simply dip the item in boiling water to help soften the wax, remove what you can, and then repeat the process until all wax is removed. Place the washable candle holders in the dishwasher for cleaning and to get that final sparkle!

– Using some winter squash in your recipes? To make it easier to cut in half, place in the microwave and heat for about 2 minutes on high power on each side. To continue cooking in the microwave, scoop out the seeds. Place 1 tablespoon of water into the space where the seeds were. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the oven. Cook for 10-12 minutes on high, depending on size. Let stand 2-3 minutes.

First rule of thumb, read the care label. After that, follow the instructions below:

– Cranberry sauce slip off the spoon? Remove any excess fruit from the cotton and run the fabric under cold water to prevent oxidation. Wash the garment in the warmest water safe for it. Use your bleach dispenser or add liquid chlorine bleach or color-safe bleach during the rinse cycle, after your detergent has done its job.

– Turkey a bit too juicy? Apply a pretreat to the oily stain, or rub liquid detergent directly into it. Wash the garment in the hottest water safe for the fabric, then air dry and check it for any remaining stain. If necessary, repeat the procedure before placing the clothing in the dryer.

– Overflow from the gravy boat? Scrape off any remaining gravy with a spoon or back of a butter knife. If it has already dried, brush off the residue. Rub in liquid detergent and then soak the fabric in a mixture of detergent and water for up to 30 minutes. Finish by washing the garment in the warmest water safe for it.
