'Fabric Softener Jesus' Incident Could Have Been Avoided With This Helpful Stain Removal Tip (PHOTO)


Fabric softeners don't usually leave stains, but left on clothing long enough and you can end up with a blemish on your fabric. Take Martin Andrews, for example, who explained that this mishap left what he desribes as a "fabric softener Jesus" on a T-shirt. To resolve this erm, interesting, problem, we decided to provide a divine intervention of our own (pun intended) and share a helpful stain removal tip from our friends over at Good Housekeeping to restore tarnished clothes.

First, you'll need to work in a layer of liquid detergent into the affected area, making sure to lather the cleaning agent deep into the fabric. Then, we recommend that you hand wash the fabric in very hot water. At this point, much of the stain should have already disappeared. But in case it hasn't, simply repeat the process until it's completely gone.

Unless your fabric softener spot resembles a holy vision, we suggest you try this remedy as quickly as possible to avoid permanent damage.

If you found this laundry stain intriguing, you'll definitely want to check out other "sacred sightings" in the slideshow below.
