Few things are more fun than being invited to a friend’s patio for a summer BBQ. Spirits are high, and the glasses of wine? Let’s just say they’re getting refilled. So when your red wobbles onto the tablecloth, don’t stress. The answer to your problem is likely right in the pantry.
- Open and sprinkle a packet over the stain. For maximum absorption, let it sit throughout the rest of the BBQ.
- Within 24 hours of scraping the sweetener off, rinse the tablecloth in cold water.
- Launder as usual. (Pro tip: Swap out the artificial sweetener for distilled white vinegar if the cloth is cotton, a cotton blend, or permanent-press.)
And hey, if the stain just won’t quit, there’s always another checkered cloth to be found.
