The meal was lovely. The conversation engaging. Best of all, the entrée was delightful. A good time was had by all.
However, the guests are long gone and now you’re stuck with an ugly red wine stain on your prized tablecloth. Is this washable tablecloth or napkin destined for the rag bag? Not if you know this super simple solution:
First, spread the stained portion over a bowl or your kitchen sink.
Next, liberally sprinkle ordinary table salt on top of the stain.
Finally, pour boiling water over the salt and through the cloth to take out the stain. Provided you can do this while that stain is still fresh, this works really well.
