    A bad stain can ruin your day, or worse, your favorite piece of clothing. But, it shouldn't be that way. Most stains are removable — it's all about smart treatment know-how (plus a little patience and elbow grease). We asked Carolyn Childers, Handy’s chief home officer, to give us the 411 on tricky common stains, from ink to grease to coffee. 

    Turns out, toothpaste doesn't need to be dealt with immediately, but you should rinse coffee stains with cold water as quickly as possible. We'll never stop drinking wine on our white rug, sipping coffee in the car, or putting mustard on that dog at the ballpark — but thanks to these expert tips, our future stains won't know what hit them.
