You’re wearing your favorite pair of jeans with just the right amount of casual cuff and an everyday white tee, possibly French-tucked. Then something catches your eye. Round or oblong, massive or teensy, whatever the shape it takes, that’s a gosh darn stain staring you in the face, mocking you, as your internal neat freak screams, “I JUST WASHED THIS!”

Despite the stain’s best efforts, you will not allow your day to be ruined. Your best bet is to act fast; according to Brian Sansoni, a senior vice president at the American Cleaning Institute, while it’s not always convenient, “Speed is your friend.” Quick action prevents a stain from setting, meaning it’ll be waaay less of a headache for you to remove.

Your plan of attack? Focus on the essentials: a sponge, basic laundry detergent, prewash stain remover, baking powder, and paper towels. While the clock may be against you, if you can find a working faucet, you and your clothing will be fine.

One pro tip that Sansoni recommends: “Don’t put clothing into the dryer if the stain persists. If your first attempt at removal wasn’t totally successful, repeat the steps until it’s completely gone. Putting clothes in the dryer will set the stain.” Now, keep your stained pants on while we walk you through the best ways to beat the worst splotches.

Lipstick (or Worse) on the Collar

Ah, makeup residue: Because all-day coverage, no-smear lipstick is a total fallacy! To rid yourself of those annoying collar traces (and possible romantic indiscretions), pretreat with stain remover or detergent and cool water. You can also gently rub the smears with a bar of soap to release the stain before putting it through your normal wash.

The Ring a Tide Pen Leaves Behind

While Tide to Go Pens appear to be a convenient option for stain removal when you’re out and about, they can often leave behind residue detergent that actually draws more attention to the original stain. To correct this, rinse with warm water, cover the ring with detergent, and let it sit for 20 minutes. Using a soft-bristled toothbrush, massage the detergent gently into the fabric and launder.
