How I Discovered the Secret Weapon in the Fight Against Sriracha Stains
I often tell people that being a Clean Person is a little like being a doctor at cocktail party: When Im in a social setting, everyone wants to ask me about their proverbial moles. I dont mind this at all—I love hearing about peoples messes. Frankly, Id much rather hear about how you ended up with candle wax on the ceiling than have to look at photos of your ugly babies. Now you know.
A few summers ago, over after-work drinks, a coworker piped up, “Jolie, can I ask you a question?” which, given my line of work was something he neednt have worried about. The question was this: He had an old pen stain on the light-colored pants he was wearing, and he wondered if there was a way to get it out. There sure was, I told him! Rubbing alcohol was the trick and, I added, if there was a bottle of hand sanitizer around, that could be used as a stain remover, since hand sanitizer contains a high concentration of alcohol.
We found some hand san, massaged a small amount of it into the pen mark and voila! No more pen stain. I went back to drinking my wine. My friend, however, wasnt content to stop there—those same pants also had some old Sriracha splatters on them and he was curious…
I bet you dont even need me to tell you that the hand sanitizer took those old Sriracha stains right out. There you have it: The solution to old Sriracha stains is hand sanitizer. Straight up rubbing alcohol will also do the trick.
