Whenever I put something in tupperware that will stain if heated up (especially anything with tomato sauce), I first spray the container with cooking spray. It provides a barrier and the container won't stain, and also makes washing it out easier

I learned this one from my sister (who was a kindergarten teacher). If a clothing stain has an oiliness to it (examples: tomatoes, oil based salad dressing), gently rub some Murphy's oil over the stain, then launder as usual. Do NOT put this article in the dryer...let it air dry. That way, if the stain needs another round of Murphy's oil (it rarely does by the way!), the dryers' heat won't have heat-set the stain. This product has saved many an article of clothing at my house over the years!
1.Quell oversudsing - Since, of course, we are all very careful in how much detergent we use in our laundry, we never have too many suds. But if someone overfills ... you can eliminate excess suds with a sprinkle of salt. 2.Dry clothes in the winter - Use salt in the final laundry rinse to prevent clothes from freezing if you use an outdoor clothes line in the winter.

3.Remove perspiration stains - Add four tablespoons of salt to one quart of hot water & sponge the fabric with the solution until stains fade.
