RealSimple: Our Best Holiday Stain Removal Tips and Techniques

5 of 11

How to Remove Gravy, Butter, or Salad Dressing

On table linens: If the stain is still wet, swipe it with a Shout Wipe and Go instant-stain-remover wipe. If the stain has dried, spritz with Tide Boost Pre-Treat spray and (for wet stains, too) wash in the warmest water safe for the fabric.

On the rug: For wool, use a clean white cotton cloth to blot with WoolClean Dry Spot Remover No. 2, then dab with diluted dish soap. Follow with a fresh damp cloth. For a synthetic rug, apply Goof Off to a cloth and blot onto the stain. Then dab on diluted dish soap and use a damp cloth to rinse. Dry with paper towels.
