Important note on stain removal: Before you begin, remove as much of the solids as possible, and blot up as much liquid as possible. Dab the stain, don’t rub. Begin at the outer edge of the stain, working your way towards the centre. If possible apply treatment from the back of the fabric. Be cautious with application, by applying too much solvent or rubbing too vigorously you risk spoiling the fabric. Never strengthen solutions if they don’t work. Always rinse fabric and let dry before trying another remedy. If you decide to take fabric to a professional cleaner, tell them what caused the stain and what home treatments you have already tried.
Recipes (Make Your Own)
Dry skin lotion
Mix 1 Tablespoon Home Essentials Rosewater with 2 Tablespoons of Home Essentials Glycerol. Smooth over arms and legs at night, rinse off the following morning.
Liquid hand wash
Gather together 250 ml boiling water, 2 tsp Home Essentials Glycerol, 2 tsp Home Essentials Rosewater, 10 drops rose essential oil (or any of your choice), and 2 tbsp soap, grated. Add grated soap to boiling water, stir and then let sit for about ten minutes until it melts. Then stir in Glycerol, Rosewater and essential oil. When the mixture is smooth, pour while still warm into an empty soap dispenser bottle, as when cold it will set to a jelly and be hard to pour.
Glossy lip balm
Mix up a paste of Home Essentials Glycerol and Home Essentials Petroleum Jelly, to either wear on its own or over lipstick.
Glass and mirrors mix
Wipe with equal parts Home Essentials Glycerol and Home Essentials Methylated Spirits to help keep them fog free.
Mixture to soften dry spills
Dilute 50:50 with water.
