via a newsletter, here's a handy tip- maybe you are having a holiday party.
"To remove a red-wine spill from a tablecloth,stretch the stained fabric over a bowl,sprinkle on a liberal amount of salt,and,from the height of one foot,pour boiling water over the stain. Launder as usual."
as for me, I'm always needing to get candle wax out of stuff. My tip: use an iron.
