With the wealth of valuable knowledge we’ve accumulated over the years, we feel that some previous posts are worth sharing again. Thus, Fridays are “Blast From the Past” – where we choose a T Ching post from this month but a previous year that we feel is worth another read and breathe new life into it. Enjoy!

“Pshaw!” (not precisely what I exclaimed, but it is an acceptable expletive.) I took another sip of the tea and took a deep breath. Clearly another sip and a deep gulp were called for. Such a lovely tea! But I digress.
The stain had to go, and like the Cat in the Hat: it Needed To Go NOW. After doing a little research, I decided to try a remedy I discovered last summer for wine stains: four parts hydrogen peroxide to one part liquid dish detergent, preferably blue Dawn. I dabbed the liquid on the stain, washed the shirt in warm water and . . . NO STAIN! Not a trace. I was so impressed, I decided to use the rest of the peroxide brew on a tea stained carpet in the guest bedroom (aka my sewing room). The tea stain has been in the burnt orange carpet since 1986. This carpet has been shampooed at least six times since stained, resulting in a more vivid contrast between the bright orange of the carpet and the deep brown of the tea stain.
The stain disappeared. Gone. Vamoose. Try this stain removal remedy . . . it works!
