few tricks how to handle stain

Got this from Internet.
Put it here, so it will be easier for me to find.  
I am miss sloppy but I am an adult, so I should be responsible for the damages. 

Coffee & Tea: Pour boiling water through the stain from the back of the fabric.

Glue: When your little cherub comes in with the neatest bean picture you've ever seen, and more glue on their good shirt than on the paper, don't worry. Just hang the artwork on the refrigerator, and soak the shirt in warm water with 3 tablespoons of vinegar. Rinse well.

Gum: Rub an ice cube over the gum until it stiffens, and peel it off.

Ink: Where is that pocket protector when you need it? Ah well, most regular inks come out in the wash, but just in case, try applying hairspray liberally to the stain and rub with a clean, dry cloth.

Lipstick: Soften by rubbing with petroleum jelly {Vaseline} to 'float' the stain. Sponge with hydrogen peroxide or denatured alcohol.

Mildew: This one can be really tough, so you'll want to treat it while it's still fresh if at all possible. Here are a few suggestions; 1)Try soaking the fabric in white vinegar. 2) Blot on lemon juice and salt and let the fabric set in the sunshine. 3) Blot on hydrogen peroxide repeatedly. 4) For the really desperate, try soaking the fabric in sour milk or buttermilk overnight.

Mud: Let dry completly, brush off. Soak fabric in 1/4 cup detergent and enough water in a bowl to cover for 1 to 2 hours. Wash as usual.

Oily Stains: Try applying cornstarch and water as a paste. Let dry and brush off.

Protein Based Stains: Most foods {eggs, fish, meat} are handled the same way - plenty of cold water to soak to stain out. Don't use hot or even warm water as it will set the stain. The old meat tenderizer trick works fairly well too, just apply as a paste, let set 15 to 30 minutes, and wash in cold water.
