#4 Cleaning Tip

    Remove grease stains by covering the entire spot with liquid dish detergent. Gently work detergent into the grease to dissolve it, and rinse the area with white vinegar to remove excess detergent.
       

#5 Cleaning Tip

    Use salt on red wine or coffee spills to soak up the stain and keep it from setting.  Excess salt can easily be vacuumed or wiped up.
