How to Get Rid of Stains for Your CNY Goodies?

Once again, Chinese New Year is here ready to roll around. We are finally able to meet the people that we missed seeing last year. Also, we can now get all out and snack on our favourite goodies. However, before we get too excited about Chinese new year, do encourage the practice of social responsibility by adhering to our regulations in Singapore for Covid-19.

While our time to indulge those goodies are endless, stains are here to ruin every moment. Of course, we would not want that to happen, especially since CNY only passes once a year. As a provider of laundry service in Singapore, we want you to have a harmonious time with your family as well as your closest friends. So, here are some laundry services tips that can help you get rid of those goodies stains.

How to Get Rid of Stains for Your CNY Goodies?

  1. Mandarin Oranges

    Exchanging mandarin oranges has been part of our tradition for centuries. We believe that it is to wish others for luck and wealth. However, its citrus juice does stain a lot in any fabric. Fret not since there is a way to get rid of it. Listed below are steps on what you need to do:
    • Sponge the area with cold water
    • Apply some wet spotter and drops of white vinegar
    • Cover it with an absorbent pad and let it sit for a while
    • After a while, let the water run to remove the residue
    • Repeat the entire process until the stains are no longer visible
  1. Yu Sheng

    Even though yu sheng is technically just raw fish salad, it tastes and feels better with all the meaningful sauces and condiments. That is for sure since, without it, this dish would be incomplete. So, for you to indulge more on your favourite dipping sauce, be sure to know how to treat the liquid that dripped on your shirt. Let us show you how to remove oil-based stains:
    • Press the excess oil with a paper towel
    • Sprinkle some baking soda and let it sit for at least 24 hours
    • After that, brush or vacuum the baking soda away
    • Spray some vinegar and water solution
    • Scrub it with a toothbrush, then rinse with luke water
  1. Shrimp Rolls

    Of course, right after you indulge yu sheng with our family members, you would love to have something bite size to eat. However, the moment you dip it with your favourite chilli sauce, expect some of it would drip onto your clothes. Fret not since blotting it with white vinegar can wash the stains away.
  1. Osmanthus Wine

    Lastly, right after eating all the goodies on your plate, you would drink some osmanthus wine to quench your thirst. However, similar to red wine, this alcohol also does stains. Not to worry since all you need to do is pour some boiling water to wash out onto the stains until it is no longer visible.
